I think this deserves a thread of its own. I remember trying to argue a year ago that Kevin Durant was better than LeBron James....wow. A lot of that stemmed from my dislike of the Heat (especially Battier and now Birdman) but it's comical to look back on it now. Have to give credit to LeBron. He's definitely the quintessential "modern athlete". Half of the people, if not more, watch the games rooting for him to fail. Maybe that says something about our society. Maybe not. But I do know that LeBron has put up with more shit than anyone over the past 3 years and he has really grown up. The speech he gave at the trophy ceremony about just being a kid from Akron made me really step back and look at him, and I really do think that he still pictures himself as a big kid. Sometimes cocky, sometimes not serious enough, but he's a winner too. The CBA is set up now so that it makes dynasties extremely difficult to have. I don't know where the Heat go from here, but LeBron is only 28 still. He has an outside shot at catching Michael for the title of GOAT, and it will be awesome to watch.
