Former NBA star Chandler Parsons recently shared his thoughts on the issue of whether LeBron James is feared in the league or not, following Mario Chalmers' statement that LeBron is not.

According to Parsons, he found it harder to match up with Kevin Durant than with LeBron James because of Durant's ability to score in isolation and break down defenses.

Parsons made it clear that this was not a slight against James, but rather a point about Durant being a more difficult one-on-one matchup.

Parsons did acknowledge that James is still one of the most imposing players on the court and strikes fear into opponents with his drives and blocks.

However, he pointed out that James tends to be more pass-oriented, looking to get his teammates involved rather than solely focusing on scoring.

Durant, on the other hand, is known for his willingness to shoot and take advantage of any opportunity to score.

He seems to enjoy making defenders pay for doing their job, which makes him a more challenging opponent to face one-on-one.

Nonetheless, Parsons made it clear that this doesn't detract from James' greatness, as he is still an incredible player and a force to be reckoned with in the league.

Overall, Parsons' comments provide an interesting perspective on the issue of fear in the NBA and how different players approach the game.

While some players may strike more fear in their opponents due to their scoring ability, others may have a different style of play that makes them just as imposing on the court.
