Buzz Bissinger: LeBron's No Kobe

The LeBron James fallout continues: Buzz Bissinger—who cowrote LeBron’s autobiography, Shooting Stars—says the star has lost his humility—and, worse, his place in NBA royalty. “It is now absurd to put in the same class as Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan,” Bissinger writes. In choosing Miami, James chose “a team where he will no longer have the pressure of the last shot … he now has the perfect out in Dwayne Wade.” James “will play a different role than league-leading scorer” and “If he wins in Miami, and he shuld, it won’t be his championship. It will be Dwayne Wade’s. There will forever be a silent asterisk attached to his name.”
