Then Lebron, he came in by himself, did alot in a weak weak eastern conference, but everyone could see this kid at the time was really ****ing good. NOw he got a big dog with Wade and shit exploded got to the next level.
Lebron can be the greatest ever, but in order to do that, he has to imo win at least 4 rings. In the end thats a HUGE HUGE part of it. His teams will be capable, but there are also some damned really good teams out there and alot of other teams that can play good ball.
Still Michael imo is the best of them all. They are also different players. Lebron is just a powerful ****ing beast, good ball IQ. His jumper is pretty good now. Jordan was just all around great in everything except the 3 and he was ok at that. Kobe is a little more of a shooter and a chucker, but if you looked at alot of the lakers games he had to become one and dude has the best footwork out of any player ever its just insane.
IN the end, you win if your team has any of them players!
Lebron will never be the best ever. Like Gretzky, there is no way we will see another Jordan. Lebron is a great player, but nobody will have the combo of pure ability and mental toughness as Jordan has.
