Shannon Sharpe Reveals His Thoughts On LeBron’s Lakers Legacy

Shannon Sharpe is a huge LeBron James fan, and that is very well known at this point. Overall, he is someone who always goes to bat for LeBron on Undisputed. Moreover, he has been a fixture at Lakers games this season. Of course, he infamously got into an altercation with the Memphis Grizzlies. This included Ja Morant, Dillon Brooks, Steven Adams, and even Tee Morant. However, Shannon eventually apologized and the whole thing was put to rest. Either way, it is clear that Sharpe loves his Lakers.

Subsequently, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are now in the Western Conference Finals. They are set to play the Denver Nuggets, and you know Shannon Sharpe will be watching.

Shannon Sharpe Makes His Prediction

Of course, LeBron James is the best player to ever wear a Lakers uniform. Although, that does not mean he is the greatest Laker ever. That is a designation reserved for players like Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem, and even Shaq. That said, Shannon Sharpe believes LeBron can become a top-five Laker in the franchise's history. In order to make this happen, he will need to win the title this year. Additionally, he will need to get a Finals MVP. This is a tall order, especially since Anthony Davis appears to be the number one option right now.

Before LeBron can even win an NBA title, he has to get through Nikola Jokic first. The Nuggets big man has been on another level this season. Moreover, the Lakers would have a tough opponent in the NBA Finals. It could very well be a quick series, and not in the King's favor. Either way, fans will be watching, and Shannon Sharpe will be around to defend the legacy. Let us know who you think will win the series, in the comments below.
