It's a fact. LeBron James could hang with any superstar in the league's history. He's incredible. Great players like Bird have flat out said this. Bron is incredible. NO level of denial is going to change the fact that he's the best player in this league and the transcendent type of player who could fit in with/against any former player in history.
it's a sport where individuals can make an impact more so than any other sport. It's what makes players like Russell, Jordan, Hakeem, Magic, Bird, etc so darn iconic. Right now this is King James' league... he could hang with any of those greats.
Larry said that LeBron was in his league?
He's the best player RIGHT NOW, but comparing him to Russell, Hakeem, Larry, Magic...
Maybe I'm just too old school, but LeBron, while talented, couldn't hold a candle to the old-time greats.
KG in his prime would be too much of a load for LeBron, especially.
LeBron still had trouble keeping 35 y.o. Pierce under wraps in the playoffs, too.
