LeBron James is beyond comparison. The way the game has changed and in terms of how the he approaches the game, King James is nothing like the other greats Wilt, Dr. J, Kareem, Magic, Isiah, Shaq or Kobe no offence to you Karl Malone fans, but the Mailman never delivered in Utah a championship. If anything, James MJ. Dominant on the court and able to steal the show. Legends. There's no denying LeBron will one day attain the same status, but it's going to require a stellar supporting cast. Back in the Jordan's heyday, everyone's second favourite player was Scottie Pippen. The gangly swingman was pivotal in the Bulls' three-peat and will no doubt be lost in the original No. 23's history down the road. But James hasn't had a Pippen. None of his Cavs teammates have come close. And that was painfully evident as Cleveland were eliminated by the Celtics last night. At least James didn't leave the court without shaking hands as he did following last year's loss to Orlando in the Eastern finals. The jury is split on where LJ will end up next season. The Knicks, Nets and Heat are the most talked about destinations. But wherever he lands, that team should break the bank and try to grab outgoing Toronto Raptors star Chris Bosh to be his Pippen. In terms of free agents this summer, there's probably none better to help James towards a string of championships and the Hall of Fame. On a separate NBA note, John Browne and I agree that Steve Nash should finish his career with the Raptors. Not only is he Canadian, he's the most ridiculous man in the world.
