Re: LeBron James right now is the best player of all time
I basically feel he can't overtake MJ no matter what because he can never have that unblemished finals record. But if he surpasses or equals MJ in both MVPs (5) and rings (6), then it's a viable conversation. Call me if Lebron has 4 rings and we'll see what the chances are.
Edit - one other point. Think about the careers of Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, just to name a few. I honestly think if Lebron played in MJs time he would have suffered the same fate, by virtue of mental toughness alone. I don't think Lebron is mentally soft (anymore), but MJ would have protracted Lebron's early struggles and used it to destroy him.
