Default Re: LeBron says Dr J is TOP 3 All Time

He said Jordan without hesitation but then took a while to come up with the second name.

I think Dr. J is underrated on this board, but that's probably ranking him a bit too high. I think LeBron would tend to favor wing players though and Dr. J certainly was a revolutionary player from the POV of advancing the athletic wing player prototype.

If Jordan is your no.1 by far, then there is some logic to Dr. J being no.2, because he paved the way for MJ in some ways.

Bird at 3 is a good choice IMO.
