this. when you consider lbj's 4 mvps arent as impressive. if he played the same years as hakeem, would he have more than 2, who knows. maybe not.

How would he had have better achievements AND stats than Jordan with 4 rings, 4 FMVP's, and 5 or 6 MVP's?

He has passed Hakeem at #10. He's a hair behind Duncan/Kobe.

It will take a lot to pass Bird/Wilt/Shaq considering the limited challenges he's had to overcome.

2 more rings makes him the greatest in terms of achievements and stats? Do you really want to make me break out MJ's achievements and stats?

I am not putting him over Hakeem. Lebron went ring chasing and is playing with much better teammates. Rockets failed to keep a competitive lineup to play with Hakeem.

I'm not even the biggest Kobe guy but he is above the Dream and LeBron.

LeBron would be 11 on my list. I'd probably move him ahead of the Dream in a season or two if he continues to play well. I think his ceiling is probably around 6 or 5 on the top ten.

In no world is Kobe above Hakeem.

LeBron is above Hakeem. Thus LeBron > Kobe.

Lets just forget about Russell's 11 championships, 5 MVPs, and 11+ DPOY had they existed.

Seeing as though the DPOY award didn't exist before the 1982-83 season, you might wanna use another stat/award. Who's to say Russell would have won 11+ DPOYs?

But since you and some Bron homers wanna go there:
