TSD 1-on-1 All-Time Basketball Challenge Final

untitledWe started with 32 of the NBA’s all-time greats and we are now left with 2.  Lebron James defeated Rick Barry, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan to get here and The Dream had to get by Kevin Garnett, Moses Malone, Wilt Chamberlain and Shaq to punch his finals ticket.  This has a teacher vs. student matchup feel considering that The Dream has worked with Lebron on his inside game and has really helped make Lebron into the player he is today.

  1. I’ve said since day one that The Dream is gonna be tough to beat, and I’ll stand by that in this matchup. If Lebron attempts to show off some of the post moves the Dream taught him, he’s gonna find out real fast there is a difference between trying them against Tyson Chandler and Chris Kaman and one of the best defensive centers this game has ever seen. I just think Lebron’s quickness and jumping ability will be negated by Hakeem’s shot blocking and long reach. On offense the Dream will have a field day with Lebron in the post, he just has too many moves to counteract anything a 6’8″ defender can throw at him (no matter how strong and quick he is). The Dream wins it all 15-12

  2. Lebron will retire the GOAT and he is in the middle of the greatest “Prime” we have ever seen, but he will be in trouble vs. Hakeem 1-on-1. I’m sure there are a few moves that The Dream failed to show Lebron and there is nothing that Lebron can throw at him that he won’t park in the seats. Lebron will be forced to step away from the basket and Hakeem will force him to try to win with the jumper. If Lebron has to do that, I don’t see him keeping up with the scoring pace Hakeem will be rocking in the paint. Hakeem Wins 15-11
