Is LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time, continuing among NBA fans.
Current Los Angeles Lakers star spoke to Kenny Smith of TNT about what makes someone the greatest of all time (GOAT). James said that for him he felt in that conversation when he was leading Cleveland Cavaliers until the return of the NBA Finals victory over Golden State Warriors in 2016.
“At that moment, I thought, ‘I’m the greatest basketball player I’ve ever seen,'” James said. “In all aspects. I can play from one to five; I can guard from one to five. I did something that has never been done in the history of sports. The teams that went 3-1 were 0, for example, 32 in history finale. no one ever gets out of it. And no one gave us a chance. I just felt, “Nobody’s better at this than me.”
“I felt like Jay-Z when he did ‘The Blueprint.'”
His comments for TNT echoed what he said in the 2018 episode “More Than an Athlete”.
“That moment made me the greatest player of all time, that’s what I felt,” he said.
“I was super, very excited about winning in Cleveland because of the 52-year drought. The first wave of emotion was that everyone saw me cry. It was all in 52 years of everything in the sport happening in Cleveland. And then after I stopped, I thought, “That one here made you the greatest player of all time.”
James helped his team win the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night with a score of 163-160.
