Yeah...no. And it depends on what you consider "all-time great". He's already on the cusp of being considered top 50 all-time and will probably easily be top 30 all-time when his career is over. Either one of those groups is very elite company.

He is easily in the top 50 already and if you think he he only might be in the top 30 when he is done you should have your account suspended for a week.

he has a chance at top 10..

To the OP,

Since OKC without Westbrook is a much better team still than anything Lebron played with in Cleveland, would you agree that by 2006, Lebron was one of the greatest of all time? His teams were far less talented than what Durant is playing with.

until he wins a ring, he's in the same boat as Stockton, Malone, Barkley, etc. comparisons and "greatness" die down without that specific accolade under his belt

In every topic I see Lebronze name holy crap. Leave Lwbron Jaime out of every topic for the love of god stans!

And yes, I think he will be one of the greatest when it's all said and done but not yet if that happens this year.

2006 Washington Wizards (42-40)
2007 Washington Wizards (41-41)
2007 New Jersey Nets (41-41)
2007 Detroit Pistons (53-29)
2008 Washington Wizards (43-39)
2009 Detroit Pistons (39-43)
2009 Atlanta Hawks (47-35)
2010 Chicago Bulls (41-41)

There isn't an all star in this league incapable of duplicating Lebron's "success" with the Cavs. Those teams dont even make the playoffs in the West.

Any superstar in league history when paired with a top defensive, top rebounding and top three point shooting supporting cast is capable of duplicating what Lebron accomplished given the competition with the Cavs. People with agendas love to make his teammates look worse than they are just to prop up LeBron. The team, especially in 2010 perfectly complimented his talents or any superstar wing for that matter.

It's too early to start ranking him. He has top 10 potential though.

His performance and stats have been really under the radar. The Bulls and Warriors have pretty much overshadowed the playoffs.
