[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Law of averages catching up with LeChoke? : We have quite some Sigmund Freuds in this forum. A lot of interpretation into a sentence most of the people quote wrong. Pippen is right IMO: James has the talent to become the best player in basketball. But he is enough of a headcase to end as Allen Inverson either.

Exactly what talent are you referring to?
I dont see him with a deadly shot. I dont view him as a great ballhandler at all. He does see the court well and has become an excellent passer. He offensive repetoire is missing huge chunks, like finesse, soft touch, post moves, midrange... when hes not directly involved with the ball, he lounges around 1/2 the time..
Defensively he makes alot of nice (you werent looking) blocks for espn highlights but if you watch he closely, he takes alot of plays off... gambles for the steal ala Rondo
What hes outstanding at is getting on the break and finishing and driving and being allowed to glaringly travel and committ charges that usually get whistled the other way.
Once again, we're taling about another "athletic" player, not an overly skilled one.
For ex, DH has been another athletic player during most of his career...very little offensive skills to talk about other than dunking through shear force and power.
I dont view Lebron on the same level skillwise by a longshot to the really great players of today or years ago.
