LeBron James has been part of many GOAT debates. Some analysts gave him credit for his longevity, impact on the game, influence on the team, and also for his ability to make team better, while many still follow Michel Jordan for his more achievements and delivering it with one franchise (during his prime) without any “special” demands. Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Bill Russell, and Larry Bird had honorary mentions but mostly list has LBJ and MJ as the top 2 players fighting it out for the ultimate GOAT title. Nick Wright – a die-hard LeBron James fan sees LeBron as an epitome of the NBA, and very recently he once again put him in the Best player category, though not on the GOAT debate.

On the “First Thing Fist Show”, Nick was asked to react to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s post, insisting LeBron James is the best player in the league. Pleased with the topic in hand, Nic quickly agrees with the Bucks’ star player. Nick again said that he has not put LeBron in the best position for a long time, and LBJ deserves more credit than he is given.

The 37-year-old analyst said, “I think he (Giannis) is right, Wilds if even Nick Wright is underrating LeBron James, then yeah, maybe we do need to give him (LeBron) more credit. You know it’s been a long time since I said LeBron was the best player in the world I said it was Giannis.”

While referring to the 2022 season, Nick Wright considered and talked about Giannis Antetokounmpo best player in the world, as LeBron James and his Lakes team failed to make it to the playoffs.

While still not included in the GOAT debate, the young Bucks star has certainly reached a megastar level with his immaculate gameplay. Talking about the current crop of players, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo are leading multiple stat-lines, dominating the floor for their respective teams.

Nick Wright uses his criteria for the best player category and sees Giannis reaching LeBron’s level in a short period of time. When Los Angeles Lakers crashed out of the 2022 season, Giannis led Milwaukee Bucks to the Conference semi-finals. Though they were eliminated by a young and hungry Boston Celtics team, Greek-freak managed to assert his dominance over the series and proved to be the most impactful player.

Nick Wright gave Giannis huge credit for his efforts and named him the best player in the league. Though Giannis’ game was hard to ignore, Kansas-born Wright ignored Golden State Warriors Finals MVP Stephen Curry, and Celtics Jayson Tatum who also delivered massive performances for their teams and played in the Finals.

As for LeBron James, he is been Wright’s favorite player ever since he set foot in the league. Nick famously put 4-time NBA Champion LeBron and Kareem ahead of Michael Jordan in his list of top 50 players in the last 50 years. Interestingly he had Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry ahead of 2021 champion Giannis Antetokounmpo in the list, which contradicts his “Best” claims. 

Well, we got to admit that Nick Wright never misses a chance to uplift LeBron James’ credit, whether or not he makes it to the playoffs, wins a title, or plays 40-odd games. But to be fair to all the players, Giannis, LeBron, Steph, Kevin Durant, and Tatum are some of the most loved, followed megastars in the league, who have their individual impact on the game.
