Greatest of All Time?

LeBron James Believes Beating 73-9 Warriors Cemented his NBA Legacy

Michael Jordan or LeBron James?

For The King, the answer is quite simple – he’s the greatest of all time.

The Los Angeles Lakers star did not mince any words on the latest episode of More than an Athlete, stating that his play helped the Cleveland Cavaliers to overcome a 3-1 deficit at the hands of the 73-9 Golden State Warriors was his career-defining moment – one that has cemented his NBA legacy as greatest of all time.

“That one right there made me the greatest player of all time,” James said. “That’s what I felt. I was super, super ecstatic to win one for Cleveland because of the 52-year (championship) drought. And then after I stopped (celebrating), I was like, that one right there made you the greatest player of all time. Everybody was talking how they were the greatest team ever assembled, and for us to come back the way we came back, I was like, you did something special.

“That was one of the only times in my career I felt like, you did something special. I haven’t had much time to sit back and think (about my achievements). But that was a moment.”

James led his team in every statistical category for the series, averaging 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.3 blocks per game, receiving Finals MVP honours as the Cavs shocked the world in a historic Game 7. James came down with a series-defining chase down block on Warriors’ Andre Iguodala which led to a championship-clinching three pointer by Kyrie Irving.

Not the most humble of opinions, but one no one can really argue.
