Is LeBron James the GOAT?
LeBron James has arguably been the most dominant player in the NBA since 2003 when he first entered the NBA, LeBron James does have a statistical advantage with him having numbers that are more than Michael Jordan in assists, scoring, rebounds, blocks, and field goal percentage, he is the only player in the league with a minimum of 35,000 points, 9,000 assists, and 9,000 rebounds. His style of play is more of a facilitator and is way ahead of Michael Jordan in assists, although Jordan was a better scorer in the game. Even though LeBron James might be on his way to break Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s record for the all-time leading scorer.
Every time LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers the team had to undergo a major rebuild, which clearly highlights the effects of the King, as for his Airness, the Bulls didn’t undergo that much of a change or suffer as the Cavaliers did when they lost LeBron. LeBron James even won an NBA title against the 73- wins Golden State Warriors, while coming back from a 3-1 deficit, and making history by winning the series 3-4. Not a comeback one sees every season, his record for 4-6 will be what the critics always play with, LeBron James didn’t have the star power that Michael Jordan had during his time, and even then, LeBron James winning a title for the Cleveland was worth 3 or even 4 titles.
