The question “is Lebron the best ever?” has been floating around the basketball world ever since Lebron James entered the league. He is probably one of the most athletic people on the planet and he has the skill set and basketball to back up his unreal athleticism. Although there is a huge debate going on throughout the world if he is the best basketball player to ever play the game.
I believe and many people believe that Lebron is by far the best player in the NBA at the moment. I would even go as far to say that he is the best player to play in the past 10 years. Nobody has combined skills like he does. He can pass, shoot, rebound, and he is among the top defenders in the NBA. But is Lebron the best ever?
I say no to that question right now for a couple of reasons. First off Lebron is very skilled but he has been to the NBA finals twice and he has not taken home a ring yet. The only thing that really matters in the public visions eye, when it comes down to it is who has the most rings on their fingers. Some NBA players that are considered to be the best like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Bill Russell have all taken home NBA championships. Lebron is yet to take home a title.
Also the crazy basketball media is not a big fan of Lebron James in a general sense. The media seems to not like Lebron because he is so good. Also when Michael Jordan played the immediate cannot stand him but 10 years after he retired everybody loved him and set out great he was. I believe that in the media only bad news sells and that’s what they have to reporter Lebron . So what if Lebron had a bad series in the championships against the Mavericks. Yes it is bad crack in the finals but without him would the Heat even have made it to the championship series. Also in the NBA finals series the heat’s bench scored the least amount of points a patch has ever scored in the NBA finals series. They averaged about 14 points per game. It must’ve been frustrating for Lebron and Wade with a horrific bench like this playing alongside them.
I think that is not even a question if Lebron James will ever win a championship because he will with the Heat team sometime in the next few years. Lebron James is going to continue to grow as a player as he gains more and more experience and more and more skill. But what it really comes down to is if he can win multiple championships like Michael Jordan did and Larry the legend.
Lebron is definitely going to be a Hall of Famer just by having the amazing career he has had already. He has shocked the world by carrying the Cavaliers to the championship at age 22, going first to the NBA draft at the age of 17, he has several All-Star appearances and his numbers are off the charts but can he live up to be the greatest player to ever live? Is Lebron the best ever?
