LeBron James’ case as the ‘Greatest Player of All-Time’ is becoming a bigger conversation each year. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar just wrapped up another championship in year 2020, and is looking to add another elusive title with the new-look Lakers this season.
While a ton of fans aren’t ready to accept that LeBron is closing the gap between him and Michael Jordan, retired Lakers big man and LeBron’s former teammate Shaquille O’Neal recognizes that LeBron is indeed steadily climbing up the ladder.
In an appearance on ‘All Things Covered’, O’Neal elaborated what LeBron needs to accomplish in order to overtake MJ as the ‘Greatest Player of All-Time’.
Per CBS Sports:
“He already passed Kobe and Jordan in points … he’s gonna be creeping on Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar) too. I think he’s looking to pass Kareem. I think LeBron is looking to tie Kobe and tie Jordan with championships. If he tied Mike, I think people will probably lean a little bit more towards LeBron being the best player in the world.”
