I think that some context is in order here. Crosby is 21 and Lebron is 24. When Lebron was 21, he was not the same all-around dominating player that he is today. I think it's quite safe to say that Crosby has achieved more at the age of 21 than Lebron did at that same age. By the time Crosby is 24, who knows how good he'll be. He's already led his team into deep playoff runs twice and has had the highest points per game average in the league since he entered it.

Lebron was ridiculously dominant this year, however, and Crosby will have to continue to improve his game in order to garner a favorable comparison.

At the end of the day, we really won't be able to compare them until their respective careers are over.
