Agree with this. 3 is gonna be Lebron's magic number of rings that boosts his career over many greats. IMO, with 2 total, he actually doesn't move in the rankings. Still #11 for me. However with 3 (if he absolutely dominates
) he suddenly is top5. Only Jordan, Russell, and Kareem, would have better career resumes IMO.
If he gets 3 in a non-dominant fashion, I feel like you could still make a case for anyone in the current top10 against Bron...and maybe he would STILL be stuck at 11. Top 10 is tough unless you have transcendent games + resume!
