During an interview on “More Than Just an Athlete”  Lebron James was talking about the 3-1 comeback during the historic NBA finals and said at that moment when they won, he believed that he was the greatest player of all time. Lebron is the G.O.A.T because of what he does on the court and off the court.

The current proclaimed G.O.A.T is Michael Jordan. His standing is defended by the amount of championships he has won, being undefeated in the finals, a perfect 6 for 6. The issue with this claim is that winning a NBA championship is a team accomplishment

Lebron is currently 3-9 in the finals, but one of Lebron’s losses occurred against the team that beat Michael Jordan’s teams regular season record 73-9. Lebron’s first finals appearance came during the 07-08 season and has been proclaimed as the greatest playoff carry of all time. During the past year, the 17-18 season, Lebron single handedly carried the Cleveland Cavaliers, averaging 33.6 points and leading his team in all fields of stats offense, defense and minutes per game.

This is another aspect that makes Lebron greater than Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan’s “job” was to just score. He was a incredible offensive threat that was top tier. Lebron leads his team in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks every year  consistently. He isn’t the star player on the team, he is the team.

Lebron entered the league as an 18 year-old straight out of high school from a dirt poor family, married his high school sweetheart and has never been caught cheating, smoking weed, or  committing domestic violence. He is active in his kids’ lives and is very supportive of his kids’ dreams to play in the NBA.

What I believe brought Lebron to the G.O.A.T status was when he won the 16-17 championship, but not because he won. The way Lebron James leads his team is the reason he is the G.O.A.T in my eyes. They were down  3-1, and the next game Lebron came out and scored 41 points and played every single minute of the game acting as both player and coach.
