Default Guys you would take over Lebron

What guys would you take over Lebron in a draft? Forget the centers since centers are of a different caliber in a basketball game

Mj, kobe, magic and oscar.

Mj and kobe because they are the greatest scorers of alltime and that is the main point of the game (to score).

Oscar and magic because they are the greatest all around players that played the pg. Can you imagine if a 6'9 pg was drafted in todays game and the guy had the heart of a champion, averaged like 14 assists, and led his team to multiple championships???? We wouldnt ever even talk about bron. Thats what the league had in magic

with oscar you had a mixture of AI's scoring, with Jkidds passing and rebounding. Not to mention a great jumper which nobody even talks about. His stats in todays game would be something like 27 ppg, 10 asts 6rpg

Without taking big men into consideration(so no Kareem's, Shaq's, Duncan's Hakeem etc.) whom I would most likely take over James.

I'd probably roll the dice and only take Jordan. LeBron has been incredibly healthy in his career. Already has like 10 years in the league, straight outta HS and with his basketball awareness/passing I see him carrying on a productive career well into his 30's. Magic obviously got sick, and Bird had the back issues. Bron has almost scored as many points as Bird as it stands right now. At there peaks LeBron can stack up with them as well and he's gaining steam in every other aspect(as well as surpassing 'em) as the years go by and he's only 28.

Kobe's longevity is really enticing. I'd take James tho because he has a better overall game and while Kobe's one of the best scorers of All-Time I think it's tougher to build around volume scorers.

4x MVP
2x FMVP
2x Rings

Good for 28/7/7 for his career, ridiculously efficient the past few years. 28 years old and while he doesn't have the same athletic ability as he did a few years ago isn't losing steam. I'd feel comfortable taking the chance that I get atleast 3-5 more "MVP" caliber seasons from him.

If I only knew what people knew before the draft, then there is noone I would take over Lebron.

If I already know how the players turn out, then I'd take Jordan over Lebron.

Jordan and Shaq for sure. Maybe Hakeem. Maybe Duncan.

If no centers, probably just MJ, unless you consider Duncan to be a PF.
