Default If Lebron continues to play at this level

until he's 31, will you ish poster consider him better than Bird? Best SF of all time?
Imo right now it can already be argued, The only thing thats keeping him from getting that title are accolades.

His peak is already better than birds.What he is missing is the accolades.If he gets another ring finals Mvp and MVP he will be better than bird.Bird has 3xMVP 2xFMVP 3 rings.

I don't think its possible for him to have a better peak than Bird's. The only basis he has to be better than Bird is to have health stay on his side and have a longer prime.

He needs to raise his level to get to peak Bird IMO.

Really?
-Their Stats are basically a wash
-Brons a better defender

Give Bron two more titles + FMVPS and hes easily on Birds level, probably better. Even one more ring + FMVP will put him on Birds level imo

How the fu*k is LeBron better than Bird Wow...

Using the rings and FMVP argument to prop up Bronzey, but Kobes 5 rings and 2 FMVPs dont count?? Good one

And dont give me the argument that Kobe rode shaq's coattails, LeBron left his team to join other superstars...


LeBron at best is top15. Unless he really dominates the next 6-7 years he is not moving up on that list. Hes had one decent season and a ton of embarassing letdowns and chokejobs. Better than Bird?

Absolutely. Let's be honest, Birds numbers are inflated by playing in the 80's.

Individual talent/skill/domination/production/stats wise Lebron has been better than any SF in NBA history, since a long while ago....... only thing Bird could do significantly better was shoot, Lebron does everything else better with the most significant part being defense..... Bird has a more accomplished career tho, hence the higher place on the rankings....
