The way LeBron plays, with a heavy reliance on his inside game drawing fouls and overpowering his opponents, I don't see him being as effective if he were Wade's smaller size. By the same token, with the way Wade plays, if he were LeBron's size, he'd be even more effective than he normally is when healthy. Maybe even be better than LeBron IMO.

This league has turned into Lebron James-promotion machine. IMO, the Heat is not LeBron's team, it is Wade and Lebron's team.

About being soft, at one time Lebron was considered soft. I don't see the point in reviving this thread just to gloat because Lebron has now won two titles B2B. Howard may not be soft. He's just not that intelligent, has no creativity, has a very limited game, and is overrated.
Ever consider that you being a huge Kobe fan might bias your perceptions toward Howard, Lebron and of course Shaq?

It's amazing how much Lebron hate has started to emanate from the Laker camp since he started winning championships and the media is talking about his legacy potentially eclipsing Kobe....

If Earl Boykins had Kobe's size...
If Dirk Nowitski had Iverson's foot speed...
If Larry Bird had Vince Carter's leaping ability...
If Kevin Garnett had Alonzo Mourning's strength...
If Dikembe Mutombo had Yao's soft touch...

If Snookie had Albert Einstein's intelligence she could be a great astrophysicist.

I don't see the point.
