Why do some ignorant people think Lebron is good enough to be compared to Giannis. ?

Giannis is a better defender, period. He won a defensive MVP and ESPN wrote a lengthy article about why is one of the better defensive players in the game today. Lebron has never won a defensive mvp and while he has made 5 all defense first teams that had more to do with name recognition and shoe contracts. 

Giannis is also a better rebounder averaging 10 per 36 compared to 7 with Lebron. 

If Giannis never took a shot I could stop right there and he'd be the better player. Defense and rebounding are what win games and Giannis dominates Lebron in those areas.  There's a reason why guys like Bill Russell and Dennis Rodman have so many rings and guys like Wilt don't.

But Giannis is the better offensive player too. He shoots 52.9% from the field while Lebron only shoots 50.4%. He also averages 1.098 point per shot to Lebron's 1.086.
