K. Smooth has to win a title, but when compared to LeBron, we are getting dangerously close to not only saying K. Smooth is a better scorer, but a comparable, if not better overall player. Let's look at the 9 major statistical categories:
FG% LeBron 53% K. Smooth 51% Small Advantage LeBron
FT% LeBron 68% K. Smooth 90% Huge Advantage K. Smooth
PPG LeBron 25.2 K. Smooth 27.7 Small Advantage K. Smooth
RPG LeBron 8.5 K. Smooth 8.5 Push
APG LeBron 6.9 K. Smooth 4.2 Advantage LeBron
Steals LeBron 1.3 K. Smooth 1.5 More or Less, Push
Blocks LeBron 0.9 K. Smooth 1.5 Small advantage K. Smooth
Turnovers LeBron 2.5 K. Smooth 3.5 Small advantage LeBron
3 Point % LeBron 42.3% K. Smooth 43.5% More or Less, Push
The numbers speak for themselves. The categories LeBron used to dominate over Smooth, FG%, Rebounding and Assists are now either even or extremely close. LeBron's Free Throw Percentage remains a stain on his game while K. Smooth really doesn't have a category that is overly weak. I know statistics can't tell the whole story, especially defensively where you'd have to take LeBron over K. Smooth (based on 1-on-1 defense), but they can paint a pretty good picture.
PLUS K. Smooth has starred in a feature film. What has LeBron done in Hollywood? Nothing.
I have wet dreams every single night about a rematch of last year's finals. Please, please, please, Stern, have your minions match us with LeBron and K. Smooth again in June.
