Hell, I was in elementary school when Lebron entered the NBA... Now I'm in college. He's been in the league a long time, and he's not going anywhere anytime soon.
the whole GOAT thing is subjective anyways, there are always people saying things otherwise, like Bill Russel is the GOAT.
quote:The facts disagree with you.
He didnt even deserve this MVP, Melo did. The MVP isn't the best player, it's the player with the most value to his team. Melo has way more to the Knicks than Lebron does to the heat. Especially this year.
quote:You're greatly undervaluing his total shooting %
He's nowhere near second best lol. If he retired right now, no one with any basketball knowledge would put him in the top 10, probably not even the top 15. You fanboys are so delusional it's not even funny. Smh
So let me get this straight. An argument in favor of Jordan is that he went to two fewer Finals and didn't lose?
So it's better to lose in the 2nd round of the playoffs than it is to lose in the Finals? Brilliant.
Or I guess the pro-Jordan argument is that his competitiveness wouldn't let them lose in the Finals. I just have to wonder what happened during those 1st, 2nd, and Conference Finals series. Guess they weren't important enough for his competitiveness to kick in.
quote:Plenty of people already have him in the Top 10 of all time. Simmons, who in his book wrote that LeBron would never be there bc he joined the Heat, ranked him like 7th just the other day.
If he retired right now, no one with any basketball knowledge would put him in the top 10, probably not even the top 15.
quote:That's fine, but we're always going to do it anyway. And I think it's possible with enough knowledge about the sport to do it with some consistency and reliability.
Personally, you can't even make a case for GOAT.
