    Kobe doesn’t belong.

    I think when his career is over it will be impossible to not go with Lebron.

    Lebron will end up #2 all time IMO. He's on the NBA Mount Rushmore for sure

    Nah he missed like 15 games then when he came back they just kept on losing and losing and eventually he just gave up. I remember there was 1 game they lost to a Oladipoless Pacers for like over 40 points.

    Hakeem is the greatest of all time. Only argument I'll listen to is Bill Russell because it's impossible to compare him to anyone other than Wilt. Any other goat argument is invalid. Hakeem.

    Hakeem.


    Hakeem.

    Was Akeem better than Hakeem? Nope. Hakeem is the goat.

    That’s laughable. I saw him at a bar once at midnight during the season years back. I am sure players probably do this often, however, he was on the bench at the time and was drinking. Had he been dedicated about getting off, he would have been in bed. That type of behavior/attitude is surely why he never got off.

    For the record, He missed 27 games of remaining 55 games for the rest of that season, that was 50% games.

    LeBron is very close to being the GOAT. He may not get 6, but if he gets, say, 5 plus his entire body of work that may put him up there in my mind.

    lol for the record they kept losing so he gave up and sit out the remaining games. He announced he activated playoff mode early then failed to make the playoffs. He co created the AD trade drama that plagued their whole team for half of the season. But to Lebruh fans, like always, it's cause all his teammates are trash.

    In their primes, I'd always go for Hakeem, I think.

    But I stuck to the entirety of the career, sheer dominance of the game for a decade during what looks to be the golden age of basketball (MJ).

    Basically, this is only about Lebron, and he didn't help basketball the way the stars of the 90s did. They knew that competition is what creates excitement and greatness. And Lebron keeps coming around to destroy it with the formation of the super teams.

    The ONLY legitimacy I'll give GSW is their one ring that they won without stealing some top 5 player, obviously discounting their signing of KD.

    At the moment, Lebron needs to shut up until he gets another ring to equate the number with Timmy and Kobe. Are these other guys in your top-5, much less top-10? Why is Lebron considered so highly ranked? Is it because he can mastermind a super team? Is that worthy of a top-2 conversation?

    Did Hakeem do this? Did MJ do this? Did Timmy do this?

    It is mainly because of their injuries that they didn't make the playoffs. As said before, they were #4 on the day he was injured. He played only 55 games that season, fewest in his career.

    who said his teammates were trash? didn't he lead his teammates to champions? it seems you are the only one said that. I said he made his teammate better than anyone did in NBA history. you need backup your words.

    The Lakers were a 500 team in the games he played. The Western Conference 8th seed won 48 games. So the Lakers were not a playoff team even when he played. He looked like a fool after activating playoff mode and then losing over and over. Last season was embarrassing for him. Many, many low lights. He made up for it this season for sure, though.

    I agree, that wasn't his best season. Injuries played big part of it.

    1) Jordan
    2) Lebron
    3) Kareem

    Lebron at #1 is still in play if he continues to be indestructible and all-NBA for a few more years.
