Default Never seen a guy disrespect legends so much

LeBron James says he will be among NBA's all time greats - ESPN

And people wonder why lebron haters hate so much. He acts like he's the only guy to ever put up 26/6/7 numbers lol

He's also been having his head filled since he was in 8th grade. And none of the others had a DVD out about them(sorry their team) by the age of 15(or however old he was).

Big O was and still is the most underrated player of all time!

Anyone else think LeBron will "retire" well before he should just to see what people will say?

He seems like that kind of guy.

READ!

Quote:
"I'm going to be one of the top four that's ever played this game, for sure," LeBron James said in an interview that will air on NBA TV on Monday. "And if they don't want me to have one of those top four spots, they'd better find another spot on that mountain. Somebody's gotta get bumped, but that's not for me to decide. That's for the architects."
Last I check, "going to be" is future tense. He isn't saying right now.

Anyone not saying he will be one of the top players ever based on his current career trajectory is kidding themselves. Nothing wrong with a little self confidence.

LOL, do you think Jordan or Kobe etc. would answer any differently? What exactly was he supposed to say?

If someone like Jordan says this - "He's a competitor!!!". If Lebron says it - "He's disrespectful".

I don't know why Lebron said stuff like this. He is not even 50% done of what other top 5 players did. Even Duncan and Kobe did so much more than Lebron as of today. Lebron seriously sounds like he can win Championship with ease for next 8 years.

It is too early to say that, Lebron.

People love/loved MJ and he was even more about himself than Lebron. You guys need to lay off the haterade.

They asked him to name his top 4 players of all time and he says he's in there. I've never heard a legend answer a question of who their greatest players are and them include themselves lol

You must not listen to a lot of legends. They basically all do until they are told to exclude themselves. Lol

The LOL's keep coming. Are you honestly suggesting that Michael Jordan wouldn't say he's the greatest of all time if asked?

I am one of the biggest Lebron haters on this site. And I see nothing wrong with what he said. Every players strives to be great. Jordan said plenty of times during his career that he wants to be the best ever.

People must not be reading what lebron said then because he didnt say "I want to be one of the greatest"

I agree that Jordan and every other legend said at one point that they strive and want to be one of the best. Never have I heard them say they were going to be one of the best when they were 30 and still playing so what lebron said is nothing like what Jordan said.

Lebron basically admitted he's past the point of striving to be great and that he's already there.

I don't know what he would say. All that I've ever heard him say about it is that there will never be another Michael Jordan just like there will never be another Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Julius Erving, and other players like that because they are all different. I've never heard Jordan say "Oh the basketball experts better have me be the best ever or they need to get a new architect" lol Lebron just needs to grow up and play instead of worrying about everyone talking about him.

I read it as "when he is done, he is going to be in the top 4 of all time". I didn't see a part where he said he was already there.

Trust me, if there was something there to crap on Lebron, I'd be on your side.

Because there is a difference between "wanting" and "going to get it".

He is "going to get it".

Unless the guy breaks every bone in his body tomorrow, there is no reason to think he won't.

Julius Erving was just on the bs report talking about how little respect he gets and how he feels he is greater then what most rate him. Maybe you shoul hate on him and every other legend that calls themselves great. You will find yourself hating every legend it seems.
