"The best player in the world is Michael Jordan, after that it's Kobe Bryant."
Los Angeles' based rapper The Game had some harsh words for LeBron James after his Game 5 loss in the NBA Finals last night. "It does [tarnish his legacy]" he said to TMZ last night, "Kobe and Mike never lost in the finals." A statement that is true about Michael Jordan who went 6/6, but not for Kobe Bryant (who was 5/7 losing once to Detroit in 2004 and to the Boston Celtics in 2008.)
Still, LeBron James is a meager 3/8 compared to those greats but undoubtedly the game has changed and evolved over the years. Players are becoming freakishly athletic, quicker and more skilled year by year. So, does LeBron still deserve to have his name even considered in the conversation of "the greatest ever?"
