I loved this article. It did seem to put too much emphasis on wining a championship though.

Well, I got to #1....Lebron and pretty much stopped right there.

If Lebron played a couple years with Shaq at his prime instead of Ilgauskis.....gee, I wonder what would have happened.

Then there is Cleveland before Lebron and after.

I don't like being trolled and that's what the author is doing.

LeBron is a Scottie Pippen in need of a Jordan.

Bleacher report is a complete waste of time...... it's like the onion without the cutting satire

Not sure where you are going with that but frankly if you look at the Heat....Wade and Lebron are each others Scottie Pippens.

For active players Nash wins by a landslide.

2 MVP's and couldn't even get to the finals. A fixture on the no-defense team.

Wade has zero, Kobe has one, Garnett has one, Duncan only has two.....

Let that sink in.

I guess I am not going anywhere with it any more. Lebron found his Jordan in Miami, we will see what happens.
