Yes, Lebron goes past Hakeem easily if the he wins the Finals MVP this season. You care way too much about his legacy though

They play completely different positions and I don't think they can really be compared.

A strong case for what exactly? Hakeem was a better offensive player and a much better defensive player at the end of the day.

I corrected the bolded, you made a mistake.
And lol@POTM, WS/48, TS%, PER. They have absolutely no value in comparing players, absolutely zero.

You gotta look at Hakeem's team's, he had a real contending roster for like three-four years through-out his career. Still has two rings, outplayed the second most dominant force in the paint ever in shaq in the finals, outplayed ewing in other finals.
There's no case for lebron yet, unless you care about mvp's, ts%, PER.
If you care about things that actually have value and quality of the game without a second ring Lebron has no case.
And if that's lebron's peak he'll probably won't reach hakeem's peak. I don't think that peak is something that should be very valuable in comparing players too, but you seem to adore that idea, so just throwing it out there

They can't be compared, but there's no way Lebron can guard against the Dream Shake. Nobody could.

Hakeem had NOBODY, and wild-shooting, 33 year old Clyde Drexler on his. While Hakeem was surrounded by role-players (and Clyde),

Lebron had TWO superstar.

He's a center, based on what he's doing and his abilities, he was a dominant force offensively. And still was best defensive player for x years in a row while doing that.
If anything, Hakeem is underrated, he has a case for being the best center ever
