Where is LeBron James among the Greatest of All-Time?

Where is LeBron James among the Greatest of All-Time?

LeBron is going to start this season with 3 Championships, 3 Finals MVP, 4 MVP, 12 All-Star games in 13 seasons — with 2 All-Star MVP — and is the second active player with most points just behind the future Hall of Famer, Dirk Nowitzki.

Some may say that King James has lost 4 NBA Finals, but to be fair he was the only good player on the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007, and in 2015 Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love were injured. It’s impossible to win a Championship with only one good player, ask Iverson and Kidd.

Therefore, you can say that LeBron has lost 2 Finals fair and square but he has 7 trips to the Finals and 6 in a row, there’s no doubt that James stands among the Greatest of All-Time.

Honorable Mention

Hakeem Olajuwon

The Dream, All-time block leader, 2 times NBA Champion and the man of the quadruple-double. He did it all.

10. Wilt Chamberlain

Come on, how many good players were tall enough to on Wilt 7’1”?

9. Shaquille O'Neal

The most dominant player in the paint without a doubt. The Diesel has 4 championships and 3 finals MVP.

8. Bill Russell

Russell was a Center of 6 feet and 9 inches and ended averaging the same numbers of rebounds (22) than Chamberlain. He won 2 rings as a player and a coach at the same time, for a total of 11 rings.

7. Tim Duncan

He is the best power forward in the NBA history.

RECOMMENDED ARTICLES

With 5 NBA Championships, 3 x NBA Finals MVP, 2 x NBA Most Valuable Player, Tim Duncan is one of the biggest winners in the NBA.

6. Larry Bird

Bird was 3 times NBA Champion, 2 times Finals MVP and 3 times MVP. And was the only player to could stop Michael Jordan, that’s enough to say.

5. Kobe Bryant

The Black Mamba 81 points in a game, 12 triples in a single game, 5 times Champion and 2 times Finals MVP. A cold-blooded assassin when the Lakers need him the most.

4. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

The player with most points scored in the history of the NBA, six-time NBA Champion, six-time NBA MVP. No one could defend his sky hook and that’s the reason why he is the man with most points in the history of the NBA.

3. Magic Johnson

In just twelve seasons, Magic managed to win 4 titles and 3 NBA MVP. Probably the best passer in the game if it wasn’t for his health, he’d probably be higher in this list.

2. LeBron James

King James is the best all-around player in the history of the league. At this point in his career, he is the second of all-time. Could he surpass Jordan and be the number one best player in the world?

1. Michael Jordan

This is a no brainer;Jordan is the greatest player of all time. He is a six-time NBA Champion with six Finals MVP, 5 times MVP and Defensive Player of the Year. And I don’t think someone can ever take his thrown.
