    Lebron is 1 or 2 in history.
    Is harden is better than Lebron now. Will harden become top 50 after 20 years?

    Lebron is not top 10 player in history. He is very lazy to play defense.

    LeBron is at least above Kobe.
    He is closer to the MJs (Magic and Mike)
    none of them are Wilt

    If you are the best in history, you need to be capable to lead a team to playoffs. Western conference is tough, but no excuse.
    I know that if Lakers were in the east, they can make it.

    He was out 18 games.
    They could not maintain .500 with him out
    What was the Laker's record when Kobe went down?

    One of the GOATs. He made some questionable off the court decisions that have hurt his legacy, and the way he's been acting since the decision have created a lot of haters. Can't deny his impact and longevity though, put a second all star on his early Cleveland teams and he would have won earlier and the whole narrative might have changed. He's been consistently great for as long as any star has ever been.

    Reality is that he's won 3 and won't win any more. Playing his end of the career in the west on the Lakers will hurt his legacy and how he's remembered.

    What excuse did I make? He got injured this year, which is not surprising due to his age/mileage. I said HE has done a bad job as a GM in LA.

    Try reading what I wrote and get back to me.

    Why didn't you mention Lamar Odom, who avg 19/11/5/1 on 50% shooting that series? Maybe they actually beat the Suns if Kobe doesn't quit in G7.

    Where did I say it's ok for him to go lotto with this team?

    It was a great accomplishment and a career defining performance like Dirk the year he won it.

    I just don’t think it cements him as top 3. I’d lump him together with Kobe, Magic, Russell, Oscar, and Duncan. That’s still really good.

    Without the injury they still deep in the hunt IMO
    I still think the Lekers would failed in the playoffs

    He needed this season to adjust and he thought it would be easier
    He did not expect two things
    1. injury
    2. Not getting AD (Which I think was planned from the start)

    Honestly the Lakers should be much much better than they are
    I like Imgram/Kuzma/Ball
    On the Rockets they would be near all stars and the talk of the NBA

    Rondo/Chandler/ even Lance and McGee would be all world here
    I don't think LeBron is utilizing his resources that well

    LeBron James couldn’t sniff the jockstrap of Michael Jordan

    Personally, I think he should’ve kept his political opinions to himself

    He's a nobody. A Washed-up, lazy, entitled, whining cancer. He should be booted out of the league, not held up as it's poster boy.

    The way the league and it's hype machine keep trying to pump this guy up with egregious jocking is desperate and pitiful.

    The Lakers were a better team before LeBron James got there

    I said this before LeBron probly regrets going to the Lakers cause of the young players he has on there. Makes me think does Anthony Davis think he can turn this team around if he joins.

    Honestly, nothing he did matters to me. I don't care about him, and don't even like the guy. But, I didn't care about Jordan or Kobe either. I never understood all the BS over Air Jordan sneakers either, unless you were from Chicago.

    I don't like guys that aren't Rockets players. I've never loved or idolized players on other NBA teams. All the hoopla, media , sales gimmick merchandise and all doesn't interest me about non Rockets players. The only time I even watch other players is when we play them, unless it's around the playoffs.
