I already know the comment section gonna be Jordan vs LeBron, but I wanna ask, if LeBron wins his 4th ring with this team, where does that put him in the GOAT conversation. And if he isn’t the GOAT after that, what do you think he needs to do to be the GOAT. Also, 2 or 3 videos this week so turn on notis, it’s about damn time.
LeBron has a chance to make history again, this time being the first player in NBA history to win a finals MVP on 3 different teams, but this is perhaps his most significant achievement. First of all, LeBron is doing something that we haven’t seen him do in a while and that was going to a team and have faith things will fall in place. Remember, when Bron joined the Lakers last season, there was no superstar name attached. The best player on the roster was Brandon Ingram. We didn’t really get to see much of the last year Lakers healthy with Ingram and Lonzo both missing significant game time, but there was no guarantee that the Lakers would be able to make a championship team together. At that time, we were really thinking Kuzma was gonna have to develop into a second option, that we need more role players. And then towards the end of the season, there was massive turmoil.
When LeBron went to Miami, it was with Wade there and Bosh coming. When LeBron went to Cleveland, he had Kyrie was a young All-Star, and the #1 pick that would be traded for Kevin Love. With the Lakers, all he had was a young core that could either develop or get traded, but it was a risk, a leap of faith. And then the Lakers got Anthony Davis, but even then, there was talk that the Lakers had given up too much. Fast forward now and here we are, LeBron’s gamble has paid off. And now he’s put himself in the position to win Finals MVP on 3 different teams. That was the talk of the town for Kawhi, that he could snatch his 3rd finals MVP on 3 different teams, that wherever he went, his ability to raise a franchise was so amazing. Damn PG...But now LeBron has that chance.
But, in this case, we’re talking about legacy, a cementing of a new age concept of player value. Stars in the past have played the majority of their career, almost of their prime with one team. We have players like Shaq that was a sort of journeyman in his prime, but the Lakers years were his best. The thing with LeBron is that it’s hard to say which version of him is the best on which team. Was it the Miami Heat LeBron with all the athletic prowess? Cavs Bron with the greatest comeback in sports history? Or this Lakers Bron that is reinventing his game at a new position? LeBron inspired the idea of players holding power to control their destinies, he normalized players demanding more from front offices, that it’s ok to leave to join another team. There’s only 3 players in NBA history with finals MVPs on multiple teams. Kareem, Kawhi, and LeBron.
In year 17, he’s playing MVP level basketball. But this still isn’t enough. Because LeBron needs to come out with a finals MVP, to solidify his own impact on this league, an impact different from Jordan’s.
Each player leaves a legacy behind. Think deeply about the legacy LeBron leaves. A freak of nature? Longevity? LeBron may end up being the statistical leader in most major categories, but is that something necessarily passed on to the next generation? Maybe the greatest problem any player could have is to be good, no great at everything, but that has led to a less distinguished trait we associate LeBron with. The closest to that is the chase down block. Look at other players in the past. Magic had the fanciest passes, showtime Lakers. Isaiah Thomas proved that you can win a championship with a small point guard. Jordan brought on an era of isolation basketball. What will LeBron leave on the game? Power to the players to control their own fates. And so to go to 3 different teams, with 3 different franchises, 3 different rosters, and win 3 championships and 3 Finals MVPs. That’s a legacy of a King.
But for all this to happen, to transcend and become greatness itself, LeBron needs to perform insanely. He needs to be aggressive LeBron, the LeBron that doesn’t get stopped by anyone, isn’t worried about the right play, but instead is just trying to win the game in whatever means necessary whether that means he has to take 40 shots a game or average 18 assists a game. And based off this photo, I’m thinking he has the right mentality. But what do you think?
