    This debate for GOAT all time doesn't seem that hard right now, but think about it if LeBron wins another ring. Then he'll have:
    13/14 ASG Appearances
    4 NBA Championships (Likely Finals MVP also)
    6 All-Defensive Teams
    13 All-NBA Teams
    4 Finals MVPs
    4 MVPs

    And think about it this way: even when LeBron doesn't try his hardest this year he still averages 26/8/9, one of the best (if not the best) passing seasons ever for a small forward. People complain about LeBron not trying his hardest every night. Honestly I don't care about that if he puts 26/8/9, he's just preserving his body for the playoffs so that he can win when it matters most. He's proven that he's clutch too, despite that he has lost numerous finals in the past he has also done things like coming back on the Warriors from a 3-1 lead and coming up with the hugest play of that series with his chasedown block. Also, think about it: MJ had 11 superstar seasons. LeBron has already surpassed that with 13, arguably 12 if you disregard 2005 (27/7/7 seems like superstar numbers to me). Michael Jordan has missed 4 full seasons. So I'm not saying that LeBron is GOAT or anything and I don't dickride the Cavs, but I'm saying that if LeBron wins the championship under the right circumstances it can mean that LeBron is the GOAT. Lots of people will be butthurt about this and won't be willing to accept this, but the disrespect for LeBron has to stop. LeBron is a ring away from being GOAT.

    Well said. Also, team chemistry is a thing that exists. MJ was a terrible team mate, LBJ, he is WAY better. MJ is GOAT for now though

    Yup. And two of those finals losses were flukes, the first one when he was originally a Cav he absolutely carried a mediocre team and faced a dominant spurs team and the first one against the warriors they weren't completely healthy

    Great argument But I would disagree.
    2016 was the only year in his career that James had no other all stars on his team and still won. in 2012/2013 both had Dwayne, Lebron, and Chris being all stars.
    Micheal had two years when he didn't have pippin in all star form (1991/1998) and all the others didn't have Horace or Dennis getting to the all star game either. also in comparison to the list of possible Lebron accolades here is those for Jordan
    14/15 ASG Appearances
    6 NBA Championships
    10 All-NBA first team selections
    9 All-Defensive Teams
    6 Finals MVPs
    5 MVPs

    I understand that Michael Jordan's accomplishments were greater, but you have to consider that MJ didn't have as much talent to compete with, especially at the guard positions. As for the first part, LeBron led the '09 Cavs almost singlehandedly to 65 wins with more competition

    Well just take a look at Micheal Jordan's 63 point game against the celtics. He scored 63 points and still lost because he was literally playing with no other talent besides random guys that exeled because there was NO OTHER TALENT and a aging George Gervin
