Re: Where will LeBron James rank on the all-time top 50 players list when he retires?
2/3 of his career (that will matter) is finished, and he has not accomplished enough to be considered top-25. If he somehow wins a couple of rings, while at least matching Wade's contributions (not just stats, clutch plays on both sides, etc.), he will sniff the top-15.
His elite years will be done in four years unless he can find a way to transform his game (IMO, too late for that), and whatever he does after that, won't move him up or down.
