The mental part. That is the part where I continue to say LeBron will never come close to touching MJ.
LeBron only has a killer instinct when he chooses to. We can knock on Kobe all we want for not always hitting the big shot. But the fact is, Kobe always wants the ball when it matters. LeBron too often looks mentally overwhelmed to handle the big moments.
