That question could be asked of many alltime greats.Does Jordan win 6 without Pippen and Grant/Rodman? Bird win 3 without Mchale and Parish? Magic win 5 without Kareem and Worthy? Shaq never won without an elite guard, first Kobe and then Wade. Duncan had Robinson at the end of his prime and then Parker and Ginobli, and so on.

Hell, Wade and Bosh's play throughout these playoffs was so inconsistent I don't see how anyone can make this argument with a straight face.

I have him at #8 now. I really don't see how anyone can have him outside the top 10.

I have him at #9 will move up to 5-7 range if he wins this year. If he 4 peats he'll be in the top 5.

If he 4-peated and got reg season MVP:

4 rings
4 FMVP
5 MVP

^^ Really hypothetical lol

top 15.

His MVPs don't hurt his case.
might push top 10, but that place is crowded.

lol at outside top 10. he's top 10 easily and pretty much on pace for a goat resume and he's not even 30. barring any injury next season he's gonna be top 15 all time in scoring.

for me personally he is a top 3 all around TALENT of all time, but as far as overall in a vacuum according to the general consensus to how we rank players I think he is top 8-12 as of rite now since the OP just only said rank him with the 2 chips.As soon as June rolls around and he 3 peats , fmvp and depending who they play he would officially cement that top 8 at the least.If he wouldn't have left cleveland and achieved all this without jumping ship, he would be flat out top 5 no questions asked.
