LeBron James’ All-Time Dream Team

Ordinarily an issue like this wouldn’t even matter, but since it’s LeBron James, a highly respected player who will likely go down as one of the greats, the subject becomes interesting. Who does LeBron regard as the best players of all-time? Who would he want on his all-time dream team? He answered the question with Dan Patrick:

    PG: Magic Johnson
    SG: Michael Jordan
    SF: LeBron James
    PF: Kevin Garnett
    C: Shaquille O’Neal (LeBron almost went Kareem Abdul-Jabbar)
    Coach: James Naismith (we can’t lose with the guy who invented the game)

Think that will add any fuel to Kobe’s fire should the two meet in the finals? I guess that’s getting ahead of myself but we all know Kobe wants to outdo anyone he can, MJ included. I’m pretty stunned that LeBron went as modern as he did considering his knowledge of the league’s history. Russell, Wilt, and Kareem all seemed like better answers than Shaq. And I was really surprised to see KG’s name up there. Maybe he just has tremendous respect for Garnett because the two clashed in a seven game series last year. Just think, prior to last year, KG’s name never would have been on that list!

    I guess he doesn’t know his history very well. The greatest player ever, the big dipper, isn’t on there? Whatever. I’d even take Olajuwon over Shaq.

    Best players ever.  LaBron has not played long enough to even be mentioned in the same breath as several others.  Larry Bird, Bill Russell, George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Bob Cousy, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Kareem, and the list goes on.  I must have forgoteen a lot of great folks here.  All players are judged by when they played the game.   How does this pipsqueak think he has the “chutzpuh” to put himself above some of these greats?  Deeds speak louder than words in my book.  LeBron is just another name on a team until he has come close to matching the deeds of the aforementioned players.

    Get a grip LeBron.  or is it LaGroan?
