“When he passes Kareem in scoring, you have to anoint him as the GOAT” – Isiah Thomas believes LeBron James is the best all-round player he’s ever seen

NBA and Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is arguably the greatest player of all time. According to former NBA champion Isiah Thomas, when « King James » passes Kareem-Abdul Jabbar for the most points scored in NBA history, that claim will carry even more weight.


Appearing on ESPN’s morning show First Take, the former Detroit Pistons point guard suggested that James is well on his way to being considered the greatest basketball player of all time.

« When he passes Kareem in scoring, you have to anoint him as the GOAT. By the time LeBron James is done, he is the only player in the history of our game that will probably be ranked top-ten or top-five in every statistical category. Never been done before. » – said Thomas

Thomas continued on by saying that he has never seen a player in his or anybody else’s lifetime « that is so thoroughly dominant in every statistical category » as James.

« We have never ever seen a player in my lifetime, or anybody else’s lifetime, seen a player that is so thoroughly dominant in every statistical category. You can’t be considered the GOAT and you don’t lead in no statistical category. » – Thomas continued

Thomas’ statement might lose a bit of credibility when considering that the other name in the GOAT debate is none other than Michael Jordan. Thomas has had bad blood with Jordan, stemming back to their playing days.
