    Good question.

    Caron Butler

    PROS

    1. Good all around player, who will make the shot, go for the rebound, dive for the steal, and make the pass. His stats for a small forward, 20 ppg, 6 rpg, over 4 apg are only matched by LeBron.

    2. Hard worker, not only to improve his game, but also his remarkable life story that he was able to use basketball as a way to step away from crime in the projects.

    3. Focused mentality during all times at a game.

    4. Excellent free throw shooter, one of the best in the league, above 85% last few seasons.

    CONS

    1. Not a particularly good three point shooter. He's improved here in recent years, but still not like a Danny Granger or a Paul Pierce in that department.

    2. He has been an all star, but pretty much a fringe all star who gets voted in by the coaches for hard work. A number of people think he's the best SF in the NBA after a man named LeBron James, but Caron still doesn't quite have that instinct to completely take over a game in one department or another, whether its scoring or defense.

    3. He is a convict, was arrested 12-13 times and charged many times as a kid. I know he's stayed out of trouble since he came to prep school in Maine and college, but you never know what happens in a player's closet. Many players who are from the streets still show allegiances and come back there often to meet their homies, and Caron does come back to Wisconsin for charity mostly, but the fact that he is a con still is a negative that must be out there, even if he's been a good guy for the last 10-12 years including college. We all thought Mike Vick was a good guy until 2 years ago, right?

    BQ - Their pre game antics have little significance with me.

    As I said in RBT...

    Brandon Roy

    +

    1. One of the most fundamentally sound players today. He doesn't try to be flashy, and his main weapon is his jumper.

    2. Extremely clutch. Has ice water running through his veins...managed to get a shot off with 0.7 left to win a game...can't get clutcher than that.

    3. A great leader at such a young age. No telling how good this guy can get.

    -

    1. Off-ball play. He needs the ball in his hands in order to be effective. Unlike someone like Rip Hamilton, who can come off screens to catch and shoot.

    2. Sometimes unspectacular. Doesn't take advantage of his athleticism and prefers to play an old-school game (Note - this facet of Roy's game doesn't bother me at all but some may see it as a negative)

    3. Still young and has little playoff experience.

    LeBron James

    Positive Perceptions

    1. best at chase down blocks.

    2. triple double threat every night.

    3. best power dunker.

    4. tremendous athleticism.

    5. best at driving and finishing.

    He's also multi-talented. He can play basketball, he was nationally ranked as a football player in high school, he can bowl, he hosted the ESPY's and SNL, he eats and writes with his left hand plays with his right, he's an buisness man recently got invited to the Allen & Co. media-industry conference for moguls along with Bill Gates. I mean life is good for Bron.

    Negative Perceptions

    1. ignorant/selfish/stuck up

    2. crybaby

    3. bad sport

    4. ballhog

    5. choker

    BQ: Who doesn't love them. When the basketball is in the air for tip off, game time. What the Cavaliers do before games shouldn't bother anybody. Can't wait for what they come up with this year, even though I have a feeling that they won't do it this year.
