His longevity at the top is amazing. His shooting this year is amazing. He may be able to play at the top level in his 20th NBA season. At least the 2nd greatest of all time. Going to break Kareem's record, maybe win another MVP. He has a shot for a championship this year.

:lmao:

You backed down from the title pretty quickly.

1. Michael

2. Wilt 

3. Russell, maybe Abdul-Jabbar and MAYBE Lebron

 

(Kobe doesnt sniff top five... great scorer, but with no shaq he's not the same career-wise, and with the teams that Lebron has had in terms of lack of talent, Kobe wouldnt be close to championshipa. Hell, Kobe wasnt the best player on those teams, it was Shaq.  Who also is well behind those listed already.)

I hate to break your heart, but LeBron is not even in my Top 10 of All-Time.  Another thing is LeBron is not even the greatest small forward of all-time, either.  Here's my top 10 of All-Time:

1. Michael Jordan

2. Earvin "Magic" Johnson

3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

4. Bill Russell

5. Wilt Chamberlain

6. Larry Bird

7. Hakeem Olajuwon

8. Oscar Robertson

9. Kobe Bryant

10. Tim Duncan

And, if I had to pick a starting 5 of all-time, it'd read like this:

Point Guard: Magic Johnson

Shooting Guard: Michael Jordan

Small Forward: Larry Bird

Power Forward: Karl Malone

Center: Bill Russell

As far as greatest players of All-Time, I'd LeBron right behind Scottie Pippen at #16.

Guys I would draft ahead of Lebron if we knew their production and longevity would match the actual career had (so a guy like Walton won't get picked because for one year he might have been an all time great if not for the injuries stuff):

Without ANY question nor hesitation:

MJ

Kareem

Wilt

 

Guy I'd almost certainly pick over him:

Russell (while arguably the greatest player ever, it was such a different era in terms of his impact on defense... if he had that impact on defense, he'd be above, but I just dont "know" - as if any of us know anything)

Guy I'd probably take over him

Magic - though it's starting to get close here, the ball started in Magic's hands, made everyone around him that much better - and dammit, he could play freakin' PG or C for you in an NBA finals pinch. 

 

Then I'd draft Lebron, probably

 

Guys I'd consider taking before Lebron:

Bird

Olajuwon

Shaq

Oscar Robertson
