If you owned a Basketball Team and had a chance to get Either LeBron or Dwight Who would you choose.

LeBron would fill seats
Dwight seems to have a Mental toughness about him.
Both are Talented and will be playing in the league for years.

I like Dwight Howard more, but I would go with Lebron. For the simple reason that he makes players around him better, Dwight can't say the same.

It looks to me like both are chokers and losers who lack the killer instinct. But, maybe they will mature into good NBA pressure players.Sex, Drugs, Sports, & Whimsy

I remember when Kobe and Shaq couldn't win a championship. All the talent in the world but couldn't win the big one. They brought in Phil Jackson who has a knack for getting talented stars with big egos to work with their teammates to with a championship. If I was LeBron I would seriously think about heading to LA. (Or where ever Phil Jackson will be coaching next year)

The same could be said of Glen 'Doc' Rivers, he did wonders with the Celtics, and the big three are no less talented then Shaq and Kobe, so why not send Lebron to Boston? Afterall, the Celts sent home both Lebron and Dwight, Doc Rivers is a great coach!

I guess I would say; with Phil Jackson, he has taken the best Players in the league (and the big ego's that go with it) and have gotten them to play together and win 10 championships with 2 different teams. With Doc Rivers He has won one championship (as of right now: he has a chance at a second.) So If I was LeBron I would take that into consideration. If the Boston Celtics beat LA, Doc will have two championships, but if he doesn't he could still be considered a one hit wonder, while as of right now Phil Jackson has proven himself time and time again.

(LeBron doesn't need a coach that knows how to take a bad team and make them into contenders (Larry Brown, one of the greatest coaches of all time) LeBron needs a coach who can time and time again take players of his own caliber and get them over mental hump that goes with winning that first championship)

So to sum up: If Doc Rivers wins a second championship with super talented ego's then LeBron should consider Boston, if Doc doesn't, then If I was LeBron I would go with Phil.

I am not trying to be rude, but are you serious? I am from a large town that has no team, so I have no allegiance to either city. Dwight is a good player, but to put him in the class with James is just crazy to me. Dwight can dunk and thats about it. Celtics made him look bad and Lakers in the Finals last year. He let Wallace get in his head and out of his game. Howard tries to copy Shaq "AKA HACK ATTACK" What did he contribute to the Celtic series besides the elbows. Maybe after NBA he should try MMA. He knocked Davis out not even trying. Having said that, I was not a fan of Shaq in the beginning. I think if he can mature like Shaq did, then possibly he can dominate. He cannot hit a short jumpshot yet. Free-Throws are OK for a big guy. Better than Shaq anyway when he was dominate. He is not a threat unless he is within five feet of the bucket to where he is so tall he can throw it in the hoop. All that power, but not the skills to use it. Again, he is good, but nothing close to a superstar. JAMES, what else do I need to say. Compare the ages, and then look at maturity. I still think James has a way to go also to seek his full potential. If they had a Pippen for a duo, then we would probably be talking about James and Bryant right now. Jamison just could not get it done. I will say though that the Celtic "D" is just crazy. James can beat you too many ways. He shoots the three. He has a great jumpshot anywhere. The man practices half court shooting. He can break your ankles and smash the boards. I could go on and on. They both broke down mentally in the series with Celtics, but Howard in my view looked like a child crying out there every play. Wallace shut him down and got in his head. Reminded me of Rodman. Once he matures then we may see a greater player. I never think he will come close to James though.

It would help, but that I just cannot see happening. It would be a 15-17ft pass or bricks flying.

With Lebron in Miami and Dwight in Orlando, it is going to get interesting.

They're both different players, but since you asked...

Lebron is my choice. I like Howard but to compare him to James is simply ludicrous. Lebron is more versatile, complete, can carry on a team and will sell out arenas
