Where do you have LeBron in your all time players?

 

 

Do you have him at top 20, top 10 or top  5?

Hovering around the top 10 looking in. He gets himself another 2 rings then he has a spot at the table with the legends.

^Agreed. He' a top 10 talent but winning matters a lot and if he just gets to the finals without the results I don't see him as a top 5 player personally.

 

He's got some years left in the tank though to prove it, however.

It should not be ignored that he didn't win a title until he left Cleveland and hooked up with Wade, who had already won a title. 

 

I used to be certain he would win in Cleveland, because the East lacks a true #2 team; but, with GSW & SAS so strong, I'm not so certain.

 

In 40 years, there will be some who will view his career a bit like Oscar's, if Lebron fails to win more rings.

 

Also, let's see if he can keep rolling out there 70+ games a season over the next 3-5 years, or if he finally suffers the major injury he's avoided his whole career.  


Don't feed the trolls.

I say he's top 10 right now and deff has a chance to make the top 5 if he gives us a couple more LeBron type seasons while maybe delivering Cleveland its first title. Dude is a generational talent who was the best player of his era and something the league has never quite seen before. Right now it's all about how far he can climb up the top 10 rankings.

Below Shaq, but above Hakeem. As of now.

 

When its all done though, top 5 pretty easily along with Kobe, Wilt, Kareem and MJ imo

(Hate having to leave Magic and Larry out...but i must and they were my generation too)

 

Be interesting to know Kobe, Kareem's, and MJ's top 5 all time in a few years.

Legends perspective more weighty than most media peeps perspective.

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

All time NBA third team.


In terms of SF, I have Bird and Dr J ahead of him. He can catch both though

Hard to have him over Hakeem, Hakeem carried bunch of second tiered players to a ring.

 

Drexler was over the hill too when he joined Houston.  And Hakeem and Sampson actually went to the finals beating Showtime Lakers.

 

 

Below Shaq, but above Hakeem. As of now.

 

When its all done though, top 5 pretty easily along with Kobe, Wilt, Kareem and MJ imo

without really thinking about the names, i probably have somewhere beween 15 and 20...he could easily end up in the top 10 depending on what he does with the end of his career...

Easily top 10 for me.

 

Probably top 5 when he retires. The finals record hurts him, but I don't put as much stock into rings as other people. However, they do hold weight. It's no coincidence that the consensus top 3 players(MJ, Magic, Kareem) all won a boatload of rings.

Right outside the top 10. I can't put him ahead of guys like Shaq, Hakeem, Duncan, etc just yet. However a ring or two more and he could definitely get in there. If he changes up his game to deal with his inevitable athletic decline and is able to remain effective till around 34-35 (like Kobe and Jordan), then I could have him in the top 5. 

 

Fingers crossed he never wins another ring.

How can anyone rank someone "All-Time" when their career is still ongoing?  It makes zero sense.

 

I despise and still don't understand this unending need to rank people.

You don't even have to go 30-40 years back. Among the players he played with and against:

 

Kobe Bryant - 7 NBA Finals 5 Titles

Tim Duncan - 6 NBA Finals 5 Titles

Shaquille O'Neal - 6 NBA Finals 4 Titles

Dwyane Wade - 5 NBA Finals 3 Titles

Lebron James - 6 NBA Finals 2 Titles

 

It's simple. If Kobe-Shaq is better than Lebron-Wade, then what makes Lebron higher than either Kobe or Shaq when he couldn't win without Wade? Stats? All of them have produced unbelievable stats. Especially Kobe, Duncan and Shaq with their longevity. Lebron has 3 years in his personal window to get something before his body breaks down for good. If he can't get any title, he is not gonna be regarded higher than those 3, and his reputation may even degrade depending on how the rest of his career goes. We are living the high times now. The same thing happened with Kobe too when we won back to back. The years after that with no playoff success people's view started to change. And it will happen with Lebron too unless he jumps ship again to chase titles.

 

Note: I'm not saying Wade's legacy is better than Lebron's. Winning chart was used to make a point.

 

 

Edit: Funny thing is, if Curry starts winning bunch of titles in Warriors dynasty, Lebron's career look like chump. No PER, MVP etc. argument will save him.
