The debate on who is the greatest player of all-time in NBA history is always a hot topic with fans. The usual suspects get called in the discussion such as Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Adbul-Jabbar and more. In the current landscape of basketball in 2018 and the coming year of 2019 it can’t be denied that Lebron James has legitimate claims to being the best player in the world. However, is he the GOAT?
He seems to believe so as he revealed his thoughts in an episode on ESPN show “More Than An Athlete”.
I was super, super ecstatic to win one for Cleveland because of the 52-year drought. … The first wave of emotion was when everyone saw me crying, like, that was all for 52 years of everything in sports that’s gone on in Cleveland. And then after I stopped, I was like — that one right there made you the greatest player of all time.Lebron James
The NBA superstar continued the conversation by commenting about the super team of Golden State and how defeating them propelled him to the greatest heights in history.

The Los Angeles Laker reminiscing on his great feat explained. “Everybody was just talking — how [the Warriors] were the greatest team of all time, like it was the greatest team ever assembled,” he said. “And for us to come back, you know, the way we came back in that fashion, I was like, ‘You did, you did something special.’ That’s probably one of the only times in my career I felt like, oh, s—, like you did something special. I haven’t had, really had time, to really, like, sit back and think, but that … that was a moment”.
