Fuming that Lebron is gonna be leading the NBA in all categories and he's scoring even better than he did in the past. If Lebron masters his 3ball he doesn't even have to drive to the rim as much anymore which means he doesn't have to get hacked and attacked on every drive.

HIS LONGEVITY IS ONLY GETTING LONGER! HE MIGHT BE DROPPING 30+ POINTS AT VINCE CARTER'S AGE. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT? HAHAHAHAHA

AND WAIT TILL THE LAKERS GIVE SOMEONE THAT REMAINING MAX CONTRACT IN THEIR POSSESSION. HE'S GONNA BE AT 6 RINGS REAL SOON HAHAHAHA

Of course I will expect Lebron to try to add as many superstars as possible.


But as i know that he struggled with absolute superstar power in the past and he's in the West now i am pretty confident that he will never ever sniff another championship. So all his inflated stats are irrelevant

Just more proof that he's not a team player but rather a stat padder that plays with a style that is non conducive to winning.

these aren't records to brag about... it only shows lebrons had the most opportunities of anyone with such little success to show for it


and playoff formats have expanded nonstop over the years... there were far less rounds/games to play back in the 60s,70s,80's....


even first round series only went 5 games for half of kobes playoff career


imagine if ray and kyrie didn't hit those bail out shots... he'd have the most stats/games and only half a ring from a fake lockout season on a colluded big 3

I think heís top five.

But to add context, itís hard to rank Bill Russell, given he was in the fundamental stages of basketball where it wasnít fully developed. I rank everything post ABA and NBA merger. Which is essentially the birth of the modern game.

I also personally find Kareem overrated, as well as Wilt Chamberlain.

I think everything after 2013 is the postmodern NBA. Where ridiculous stats are being put up with high pace, and now the three ball being almost exclusively the focus of the game. Which makes ranking Westsbrick and Harden difficult for me.

The only players I can definitively say I would take over LeBron, if Iím being totally honest, is obviously Jordan with a bullet. Who is so clearly number one all time, itís not even funny. And then Magic / Bird and MAYBE Russell. But like I said itís difficult to rank him.

So concretely MJ / Magic / Bird over LeBron

And then arguments for Kareem or Duncan depending on your fancy. Even though I think both those dudes are slightly overrated.

After the 2016 NBA finals, I actually thought if LeBron managed to pull out another championship or two with in the past few years, I would easily rank him over Bird and Magic. But he continues to do things within context that keep me from being comfortable putting him at the number two spot all time.

LeBron has 2nd most 1st option rings of anyone ever only Jordan has more due to playing in a watered-down league.

Sorry but only 2 1st option rings and only 1 MVP doesn't quite cut it to be top 5 thats basically Kevin Durant tier
