If LeBron leads the Lakers to a title, is the Michael Jordan/GOAT debate back? | The Jump If LeBron leads the Lakers to a title, is the Michael Jordan/GOAT debate back? | The JumpImma be a job I’m going to be hard to competitors and they do to Great dumps like a piece of glass around Macon. Go again. I forgot my go again like that Tracy McGrady here in Chicago. I want to talk about the top of the West, because man guys the Lakers winning in that overtime, Thriller behind and LeBron triple-double making from Anthony Davis and look despite having opportunity to decide the game with 20 seconds remaining critical turn over from Nikola jokic. Stealing the victory from the Lakers, so team did you learn more about the Lakers or the Nuggets last night, LeBron James in a 17 career 35 years plan for a title this year.
I think this is the first time in his career, where he doesn’t have a sidekick like a Kyrie Irving. He doesn’t have under Wayne Wade, so the clothes out games the burden is, and if you have multiple Defenders to where you can throw at LeBron James. In a seven-game series and wear him down as for that, could be pretty challenging, so then that pressure, you know folks over to Anthony Davis. He is a guy that I want somebody to get him the ball, whereas Kyrie and Dwyane Wade they could get it themselves and create their own shot.
So it’s going to be interesting to see when the time comes, if LeBron can close out games in the playoffs and take them to. If he does that being in his role, then we going to have that conversation of you know, possibly being one of the greatest. The greatest ever for a few months now me is as well as Paul. We we really focus on how the Lakers have been playing in the last 5 minutes of the game, and I got to say right now: LeBron James has been listening to us because he starting to take over game, he’s not selling he’s keeping the pressure on the Defense and he’s taking it on his shoulders now to finish game, and I liked that he’s doing it now and not waiting to the postseason call me and Scotty will talk about this.
I saw the Lakers closeout lined up the one thing we want to know who’s going to be the guys in Naruto without their kcp Avery Bradley. You know, I didn’t see a lot of kuzma LeBron with that lineup and we talked about this early in the year. Can LeBron be that closer than I can say they had way they had Kyrie, but it’s on LeBron shoulders and unfortunately it’s on his shoulders at this stage in his career, when you leave those other guys, but this is going to be a true Testament of LeBron.
Great Craigslist who’s going to come back up once again about him and Michael Jordan. You agree with that.Rachel Nichols, Paul Pierce, Scottie Pippen and Tracy McGrady discuss LeBron James’ season with the Los Angeles Lakers, and whether the GOAT debate with Michael Jordan will be back if LeBron leads LA to the 2020 NBA championship.
