Lebron James is the NBA version of Darth Vader.

Updated on June 12, 2012

How is it that the best basketball player of this era, is also the most hated? More hated than Metta World Peace, who's elbow nearly ended another player's career. More hated than Kris Humpries, who got dumped by Kim Kardashian.

"The force is unusually strong in him."- Qui Gon Jinn

Like Anakin Skywalker , (who later became Darth Vader) Lebron James was the "Chosen One" The player with the talent to take the NBA to new plateau like Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson did in their eras. Regarded by many as the best high school player since Lou Alcindor, Lebron made the jump into the NBA, and quickly showcased the "force" that seperated him from the other young stars like Carmello Anthony, and Duane Wade. Lebron was clearly on another level, and like the powerful Jedi Anakin, he was regarded as a hero to all and a players with unlimited upside. Lebron earned the respect of his peers carrying his teams through the playoffs almost single-handedly. Unfortunately, the force was not strong enough to get him over the championship hump.

"You don't know the power of the Darkside"- Darth Vader

Anakin Skywalker, once the most powerful and ambitious Jedi in the galaxy gave it all up chasing the power and domination of the Darkside and the evil Empire. When Lebron James took his talents to South Beach, the Heat instantly became the most powerful team in the league. Stacked with three of the top twenty players in the NBA, Miami were building their own Empire. Being the villain of the NBA did not stop or even slow down Lebron's production. Like, when Anakin turned to the darkside and became Darth Vader, James appears to be more powerful and driven to be the most feared man in the galaxy

Most Star Wars geeks, like myself know how Vader's story ended. Defeated, but not before he redeems himself to all the people who he hurt and disappointed. But how will Lebron's story end? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure.. all roads to an NBA championship go through the South Beach Empire and I doubt that the rebel alliance would have defeated Vader if they had to play him in a seven game series. Maybe this is the episode, where the empire finally gets a championship.

May the force be with you.
