QOTD ( On the difference between 23 & 33-year old LBJ: from Doc Rivers to Dave McMenamin, ESPN):

“I don’t see a difference except for he’s smarter. I’m amazed, really. We were laughing about it, it wasn’t so funny to us watching film. Most players when they get to his age are smart enough now they see everything. But usually when they get to that age, they’re too old to do anything about it. Kevin McHale had that comment. ‘If I had the knowledge now but my body at 22, I would have been the greatest player of all time.’ LeBron has the knowledge of all those years and he’s still top two, three athletic in the league. He has both going for him. He can beat you with his brain, he can beat you with his power. It’s a daunting task when you watch him on film.”
