Like I stated before, with all this hoopla taking place throughout the league, whether it be Dwight in LA or the Nets moving to Brooklyn, it seems as though people have forgotten about the defending champs.
Furthermore, what I find even more confusing is that people are easily overlooking that the Heat still have the best player in the NBA on their roster.
There is nobody in this league that can stop LeBron James. Some may do a better job at slowing him down than others, but at the end of the day, James is a freak of nature who can bully his way to the rim anytime he wants.
For those who don't believe James is not the best player in the NBA, I'm very interested in hearing who you think is and why.
For those of you who recognize the fact that James is indeed currently the best player in the league, yet are still going crazy over the new look of the Lakers, you are contradicting yourselves.
Just like when Kobe was in his prime and you could always count on the Lakers to contend for a championship, that's where James is right now.
For as long as he continues to play at such a high level, the Heat should be the favorites to win it all.
There is not another player like him in the league.
This is not a rant about how good James is, but this is a public service announcement deeming him still alive, you know, just in case it slipped your mind during this long offseason.
