Default Re: is there a player that has had a longer prime than LeBron James?

16th season Bron with his second 45+ point game this week


Nope, not a damn player touches him in terms of peak height and lenght of minutes sustained at that elevation, not even close


3 season of playoff games alone, not including Fiba and Olympic tournaments


All while annually topping the league in minutes

i'd say lebrons prime is 2012 to 2013


a 2 year prime


because prior to 2012 he was a beta b*tch with no jumper or post game

and after 2013 he stopped playing defense




he was an incomplete player for 14 of his 16 years in the league... luckily for him he was a great stat padder and ring chaser so his faults weren't so glaring to many



great primes would be a guy like kobe from 2001 to 2010... being a complete player on both ends of the floor

Full of stiff arms, apparently. He also stat padded, which Jordan never did.

He is already out of his prime. Accept it.
What you see now is just a shell of what LeBron used to be.

Alright, I guess he did a little in '89 as the point guard. But it's so revisionist and glaringly misquoted and exaggerated to suggest that he was stat-padding in those games in his prime. Let's put it this way, Jordan sat out a lot of fourth quarters. And by the second three peat, I don't think I can recall a game where he stat padded. He worked the whole defense from mid-range and was just a sheer display of skill.

There’s literally an article about how MJ use to stay pad.
