Would you say that Lebron is BY FAR the best player in the league and nobody is comparable to him right now?

Like he is in a league of himself. If there is someone, who would you say is the closest to Lebron.
I'd say he is by far he is in a league of his own when you consider the most complete all around player. Whether it be scoring, defense,passing, rebounding, he can do it all. I know people like to talk about comparisons and want to compare him to MJ, or a MJ, Magic combo, but who he compare most to is Oscar Robertson. Oscar Robertson is the best all around player ever and probably who LBJ compares to the most. IMO the Big O gets overlooked a lot because everyone wants to go by rings and scoring, so MJ is the 1 who gets all the attention. When I think of greatness I think of what all a player brings to the table in all phases of the game, so I have always said that a case can be made that Oscar Robertson is the GOAT. Really I think every generation has had great players that were the best of their time whether it be overall or at their position, and there is really know way really to say 1 player is the GOAT even thou we all like to talk about it.
I do think we are witnessing one of the most specially gifted basketball players that has ever played the game and its not just in the last couple years either. LBJ did a hell of a lot when he was a Cav so I dont think he is that much better than he was before, he just has better players around him now. Of course his game has improved as all good to great players evolve as they work on their game and mature. But people tend to forget he was dominating with a very poor supporting cast in Cleveland and now act like he has turned into this great player all of a sudden. I dont think there has been another guy in the league besides MJ that could have won with what Lebron had to work with in Cleveland that i have seen in my lifetime. Even thou he never won a ring as a Cav he did take them to the finals which was a pretty amazing feat.

the same KD thats averaging over 5 turnovers a game and shooting under 50%? I agree that his all around game has vastly improved but its been inconsistent. He'll have a 10+ rebound game one game and a 6 rebound game the other.
No way. KD can definitely have a good case for best player. I'm not saying KD is better, but he isn't far behind. His defense and passing really improved this year, which I think gives him a better case. Lebron is still the better player, but not by far.

I agree he's best player but to say he's in a league by himself to me is an overstatement. Cam Newton said it best, when he said "we all play in the nfl (in this case nba)
Yeah he's without a doubt the best player in the league. He has pretty much no flaws. While there is Durant as a play maker/defender and Howard as a free throw shooter.
