well as a basketball fan lebron seems to make the proper "high IQ basketball" play the majority of the time. so I like lebron for doing that - I hate that he doesn't get called for traveling, charges, and defense fouls much, but you can hate on someone taking advantage of the situation in those instances.
I know knicks fans are loving carmelo (and JR smith - when he doesn't fuck up) right now, but those are the type of players who'll break your heart if you cheer for them - because soon enough the hero-ball shots will stop falling and bailing you out of bad offense.
