As an individual player yes he is imo, but accolades wise he needs to do a bit more to pass Larry Bird and be ranked ahead of him.

What type of numbers would Lebron be putting up if the defense were as physical as Bird's era? If hand-checking were allowed?

LeBron would put up 35/12/8 in the 80s. Would shoot close to 60%.

This is the internet, I can watch Oscar Robertson play. What makes you think Bird is off limits?

So you're saying he would be a better player than Bird, Magic, AND Jordan...

Yeah okay, and those rebound numbers aren't adjusted for the much higher pace/way more possessions in Bird's days. LeBron is a beast compared to Bird, who's an unathletic slug. LeBron would totally destroy him physically. Simply no match.

Real talk...how old are you? Lebron can't even muster those numbers now in an era designed for high scoring.

Not yet. But he and Mr. Bird will be the greatest SF's at the end of this season. LeBron might surpass him in a few years.

Lol, if this were true, it would make him clearly better than Jordan. Yet, you also wrote

Quote:
This guy will be the second greatest player ever when all is said and done (if he isn't already).

...just in order to avoid negative comments from Jordan fans.
Not to mention that, since LeBron has multiple great seasons in front of him and you believe he's already the 2nd GOAT, you believe that Jordan literally accomplished twice as much as the 2nd GOAT...

You serious? LeBron would feast on fools at the pace 80s ball was played at. The 80s was the era designed for scoring with teams scoring 140 and sh-t like that.

The era of crafty scheme-based defense/zones is not designed for high scoring. LeBron is simply the greatest man. No sense in denying it.

LeBron is playing in the hand checking era. He doesnt get any calls when he gets smacked.
