    I hear the 80s were the best decade ever

    LeBron would dominate any decade. There are exactly zero flaws in his game. In the past, you could knock his clutch-ability... but he flipped it.

    Anyone who says otherwise is just hating.

    I stopped watching after he said Bill Laimbeer had "no outside shot whatsoever"

    He is the only player I fell that way about though. I think Hardens game would transfer nicely also but both of their numbers would take a hit. Being hand checked all game makes scoring a lot harder.

    this "era" argument again...

    clint capela and tj mcconnell would be bill russell/bob cousey if they played together the 50s!

    players got more talented. it doesn't prove anything we don't already know about lebron. he's the most talented ever. doesn't mean he is the most successful ever (MVPs, rings, finals MVPs). he still has to catch jordan and kareem to reconsidered the goat

    Of course he would. He's built out of the Bird/Magic model. In fact, despite all the MJ hype around him coming into the league- I'd say he's most similar to Magic

    I disagree.

    Hand checking would take away most of his thunderous drives to the rim and diminish the first 8 years of his career when he had a terrible jumper. Then, the physical bumps, grinds, and abuse would bring LeCramp to his knees.

    Let's not forget these rules were changed in the mid 2000's right around when LeBron entered the league. The changes were designed to help Iverson and Kobe at the time, but LeBron as a point-forward benefit immensely from them.

    Let's not kid ourselves, LeBron is great, but he is not up to task for a grueling physical hand checking game. He's been exposed by Kawhi and Draymond in the playoffs.

    The Dream Shake is a Stargate which opens a portal to another dimension where David Robinson's soul disappeared... forever.

    I constantly hear people argue that LeBron wouldn’t be as good if he played in the 80’s or 90’s

    Lol case and point!

    This is all wrong! Like the guys in the video said, Mark Price seemed to handle the “physical play” just fine. What the hell makes you think the greatest athlete in nba history couldn’t!? And you might want to look up LeBrons numbers against Kawhi and Draymond...

    The first time MJ retired, they made his statue that claims he’s the greatest of all time... He had 3 rings at the time.

    Jordan fanboys will continue to move the needle for LeBron and will never admit the fact that LeBron is by far the best basketball player of all time.
