He's making something that could actually be a reasonable discussion into something ridiculous...

People were also saying LeBron was Top 2/Top 5 all-time after last year's ring.

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.



You seem like the type of guy who would let LeBron smash you from behind.

Please... the underrating of LeBron simply has to end. I'm sick of gees ranking guys like Magic and Bird over him. What are they better than him at? Jack sh-t.

Jordan I can live with cus he was a two way beast and too clutch. No weaknesses and dominant at every phase of the game, just like LeBron.

But get this Magic/Bird/Kareem sh-t out of here. Magic couldn't guard a chair. LeBron would post his ass silly or just blow right by him like a bullet. Same with Bird. These guys got NOTHING on LeBron except total numbers of years played.

Someone tell me something LeBron ISN'T elite at besides overrated FT shooting?

I rank LeBron over everyone except Jordan. Spare me the "Kareem's got the resume" stuff... if LeBron played in the 70s dude would have averaged a triple double better than Oscar.

Besides, championships are a team accomplishment. Can you imagine Magic/Bird/Kareem pissing away their early 20s playing with filth like Delonte, Mo, Jamison as their best players?

Just imagine if LeBron was gifted a loaded team from his rookie year like some of these other guys. Fool would have 5-6 titles by at age 28 only.

The people who hate Lebron will never admit to that. Put kobe on those teams instead of lebron and they miss the playoffs every year

I moved him past Dr. J already, but Bird is still a bit higher. I definitely think LeBron surpasses him. Unless he has major injury trouble, LeBron might only be at the half way point of his career. With his physical gifts and modern medicine, LeBron might very well play 18-20 years.

I've said it a bunch of times... LeBron is probably going to finish his career with more points, assists and rebounds than any player in NBA history. Others will have higher totals in one category or another, but I really see LeBron having higher totals in all three than any other player ever.

Say he ends up with 30,000 points, 8,000 assists and 8,000 rebounds... No one has ever done that. If LeBron gets there with 3 or so rings and 3 or so MVPs, we're talking about top 5 all-time and yes, better than Bird.
