I’ll say it again, LeBron is not Magic.
Nor will he ever be.
There’s been talk that James could start at the point, and play a Magic-type role on this Heat team, where he shoots less, facilitates, and rebounds more.
I ask you this: how can one of the best scorers in the NBA right now, and possibly ever, accept a role as a delegator, not a shot-taker?
Has James stuck his tail this far between his legs?
We know he’s a coward, and that he chose the ultimate cop-out in teaming up with Miami instead of proving he could win in Cleveland, improving Chicago, or becoming immortal in New York.
James wants the easy title, and maybe that’s okay.
But he’s not a point guard, or a point forward, or whatever made up position he’ll probably play next year.
James is a scorer. He’s an alpha dog. He’s a go-to player.
Remember the playoffs against Orlando when he hit the miraculous buzzer beater?
Okay, now picture that same scenario, except instead of LeBron drilling the shot, he dishes to Wade, and watches as his teammate makes the shot, and gets the hugs, and the love.
See the problem?
James can handle the ball, there’s no question about that, but he can’t do it the way Magic did because he’s not the same kind of player.
So before the comparisons even begin, let's cut that conversation short right now.
