      I upvoted your opinion, I've been a Laker fan since i was born.. my only "quip" with Lebron, especially if you wanna compare him to MJ or Kobe, is I frankly haven't seen one game where Kobe or MJ leaves the game with time left..regardless if they were down 20 with 10 secs left.. 🤷‍♂️ to me that says alot about character.. and no wonder hes lost so many nba championships..

    • ronnypooky

      Travis Hanks Jordan had one of the best players in the league on his team during his championship runs. The bulls made the playoffs just fine without Jordan. Lebron hasn’t had help of that caliber until AD. After lebron leaves a team they are horrible the next year. Lebron finally has an equal and will never get the respect he deserves cause old heads wanna feel nostalgic

      Travis Hanks he willed his way to the finals multiple years with the Cavs. Through his “stats” injuries or just when they had bad games/ series. When MJ didn’t have his god squad he exited first round. MJ is the goat no doubt but stop acting like it’s unattainable for Lebron. If he wins more with the lakers he should have a chance in the conversation. Not just shutdown by some old heads who feel sentimental

    Thank you Jimmy. At first I thought this would be a shot at the Lakers title win this year but then I realized he was saying how this changes nothing on the scale of how Lebron’s dominance has been asserted into NBA history. Lebron could win more chips if he wanted but nothing will change the fact that he is one of the best players of all time, if not the best.

    Two of my biggest knocks on Bron was that he had it super easy when he joined Miami and that he only played against equal comp in the Finals because all the best teams were out West. This ring, I can't say shit about it because he honored his part. He made it to the WCF and the Finals. Wasn't his fault the Warriors were injured, The Clippers blew a 3-1, and the Heat blasted the best team in the league. He 100% eared this one imo.

      If it was easy Wade and Bosh would have carried him in the 2011 Finals when he chocked and they would have actually performed like ALL STARS in the 2014 Finals but they were already injury prone and washed by 2013. The HEAT team is the most overated team ever, before 2012 they had no depth and after 2012 Wade and Bosh weren’t in their prime anymore, if you watched NBA the last 5-10 years you know that Superteam are overated, a team with 2 stars, great role players and a deep bench with great chemistry and a good coach -> Superteam with a big 3 but no depth and bad chemistry.
      Lebron never had it easy, 2011 they lost the finals, 2012 down 3-2 against the Celtics in the ECF and had to play the best game of his career to go to the finals against another Big 3 KD, Russ and Harden+ a 2x Block champ Ibaka, 2013 they almost lost remember Ray Allen ? And 2014 the Spurs destroyed them they were just a way better team so how the hell he got it easy ? Just because you see 2 great name on the paper doesn’t mean that that team is better, the best team Lebron ever had was the 2020 Lakers and they only had 2 stars it’s a shame they broke the team and AD became injury prone if not they would have won more chips.

    @JxmyHighroller awesome content!! Love your channel. Small comment- 4:05 a higher defensive rating is actually worse. DRTG is a measure of how many points the other team scores when that player is on the floor, so a numerically low DRTG is good (indicating less points allowed) whereas a higher defensive rating means their team allowed more points to be score against them when they're on the floor.

    Maybe the strongest argument for LeBron as the GOAT is the sheer palpable terror Jordan fans show whenever a debate even starts. They're willing to hear Kobe's, Wilt's, Russell's, and Kareem's cases because they're confident they can present an irrefutable counterargument. But LeBron? He's doing things no one else ever has, including Jordan.

    I enjoy watching your videos because you break down the game with facts and not all that ESPN hot air. I also like how you did that comparison between Bird and LeBron walking off the court. The double standard in how Black players are scrutinized in the game by these non-athletic-Skip-Bayless-1.4-points-per-game pundits is ludicrous. I'm not a LeBron fan, but I have mad respect for his game.

    Nice video Jimmy- love your content- keep up the great work! One note regarding Lebron's constant badgering of refs to get fouls. Yes it is annoying... however he is the victim of a phenomenon which only one other NBA player in history had to suffer (Shaq). They are both so big and powerful that many (lots and lots actually) of hard fouls against them are ignored simply because they are such beasts that they often look unaffected by what is actually a rough foul. Of course the whining can get old. However, I imagine they feel that if they don't constantly ride the refs, that they'll get the short end of many calls just resulting in no calls. Thanks again for the hard work.

  • Alex Rodrigues
    Alex Rodrigues 3 years ago +141

    I think the ring does a lot for his legacy. He's bringing a ring back to one of the most successful franchise that have had a decade drought, leading the team in his 17th year. You cannot understate that. Not only that but he proved people wrong by winning in the west. Funny how the narrative around Portland, Houston, Denver, the Clippers and the other teams in the west changed because people can't give the man credit.

  • BALIGNASA, Jerron Marlowe G.

    this is what I've been thinking when it comes to these accolades. If you win a ring but you're not The Guy during that final series, it will really affect the goat status. This is one of the reasons why I put Kobe behind Lebron. Sure you have great teammates, but are you the one who's the best during that series. But still, both are goat players but I can say that they are not the goat of the goats.

    easy win for the 36 years old OG (Robinson - LBJ), teamed-up with a younger PF (Duncan - Davis)...

    Great content, but my opinion on two things. First, Magic had an argument for FMVP in both 1985 and 1988. He averaged 18/14/7 with 2.2 steals on 49.5% shooting in '85 (compared to Kareem's 25.5/9/5). And in 1988, he was totally the better player over the series, with a 21/13/6 on 55% shooting with 2 steals compared to Worthy's 22/7.5/4.5 on 49% shooting. Worthy won that MVP on the strength of his Game 7 (36/16/10) where Magic had 19/14/5 with 2 steals on just 9 shots. He wasn't 'outplayed' by Kareem or Worthy in those years. Second, Tony Parker's 2007 FMVP is more proof that defense is completely unvalued in the NBA when it comes to awards (or at least it was until Kawhi's FMVP win in 2014). The only thing Parker did better than Duncan in that series was score (24.5 ppg to 18.5). Duncan had more rebounds (11.5 to 5), more assists (3.8 to 3.3), more steals (1.3 to 0.8), and more blocks (2.3 to 0). In a series dominated by defense, it should've been Duncan's win again.

    I've always been taught that it is impossible to complain. If you have no power over something or someone, you can't complain. If you had power over something or someone and did nothing about it, you still can't complain. I feel Lebron follows this rule with the foul calls.

    Man you are correct how does no one understand that LeBron's legacy is over and to be honest if you have been watching basketball for the past 30 years you know Lebron James is the best player in history when it comes to how players play in the finals. He has proved himself better to the wizards, raptors, and warriors as he dominated all three teams in the playoffs who many thought we're better than lebron. He also dominated players like steph curry who many thought we're the best player in the league at that point in history. People need to know that new better players will always be coming and you cant expect one player to be the best in history forevery

    What a lot of people don’t realize too is that Lebron has played 260 playoff games in his career. That’s literally 3+ seasons worth of basketball, so he’s basically played 20 NBA seasons and is still playing at a ridiculous level. People also forget about all of the playoff series that MJ lost, just because they’re not apart of his 6-0 finals record. Idk why everyone has to always compare them anyways, they are both incredible in their own way and are both GOAT status.

Plus he didn’t have “the same team” last year, he didn’t have Danny Green, Dwight, Avery Bradley, AD, Markeiff Morris, Quin Cook, and a number of other players, it was literally a completely different team and significantly worse.

  • David Stull
    David Stull 3 years ago

    I’m confused about 4:05 because having a higher defensive rating means Lebron has a worse defensive rating than AD. Defensive rating is a measure of points allowed per 100 possessions, which means the higher it is, the more points the player is allowing.

    Not enough is mentioned regarding the number of finals appearances made by a player. People talk about wins but just making it to the finals is a really big deal too.

  • Ryan Johnson
    Ryan Johnson 2 years ago +3

    I just don't understand how someone can hold going to the finals against someone. So if you get bounced in the first round it doesn't count no harm. But if you make it to the finals and lose we start counting it against you. Lebron has been in the league 17 seasons and been to the finals 10 times. And most other seasons he was a playoff contender. That feat is incredible.

  • Devidutta Biswabharati

    Good video but the defensive rating stat was interpreted incorrectly. Having a lower # for defensive rating is actually better, while having a higher # is worse (opposite of offensive rating). So AD's defensive rating is actually a little bit better than LeBron's which makes sense since he's a great rim protector and primary help defender so he will overall typically have higher influence over the team's defense. LeBron is still playing good defense this series, but AD has been more impactful on defense. LeBron obviously still deserved FMVP this series, that shouldn't even be in question.

Because let's be honest what made Jordan great really is not just his achievements it is his style of play that got people so awestruck because they never saw anything like that before. So people translated a great style of play to be the greatest player ever. He is surely the greatest stylistic player ever seen.... especially when it comes to scoring the basketball.

    You said the narrative Anthony Davis has been playing "outstanding defense in comparison to LeBron" is false because LeBron has a defensive rating of 112.3 and AD 110.8. A lower defensive rating is better, a player's defensive rating is how many points per 100 possessions the opposition scores while that player is on the court- so a higher defensive rating would mean the opponent scores more while that player is on the court, so AD had a better defensive rating.

But 3 peating is near impossible, let alone twice, after switching sports. People just can't talk about one without bringing the other down.

    Winning a ring is good for anyone's legacy.

Maybe not 2 years ago but in 2023, having a 4th ring is good for LeBron. Rings wise, both Curry and LeBron won 4.

    You could put an asterisk next to MJ’s 96 ring as well. Payton was injured and when he came back he was clamping MJ down. 98 you could argue push off, as well as horrible officiating in game 6. So that would leave MJ most likely 4-2 right there… but guess what? That’s a hypothetical, the facts are that Bron has 4 rings from 3 different franchises and won out the west, something MJ never did. I love both players, but hypotheticals don’t mean much.

    I feel like guys like Lebron had to make all kind of moves behind the scenes and pull a bunch of string and change teams a bunch of times to win titles. I like it more if a guy just stays with the same team puts his head down and accepts what he’s given and makes the best of it. That’s how it should be in life. So, granted it’s still not easy to win, but for me, his four titles are equal to two in my mind.

Just being real with you on two era if anybody else read message agree with it's to many politics all about money 💰 and not about love that's why the ticket sales went way down before out break virus .look it up

    I was hoping for a lakers vs celtics finals just like kobe back then so its a battle if two of the most successful franchises (in my opinion). But instead we got the heat, cant say im disappointed but i would rather have the celtics face off the lakers

    I don't care how good a player is, championships don't come to those who can score at will and play great defense. The legends are the ones that make everyone around them play at their best. I hate to say it, but that seems to be what Tom Brady does best! Championships are won by a team, not a single player alone!
