Former NBA player and current analyst Jalen Rose believes LeBron James has not yet entered the conversation of the “greatest ever”. According to him, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar should pass a few other players before he can be included in the GOAT conversation.
“FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE CAN’T HAVE AN MJ VERSUS LEBRON CONVERSATION BECAUSE LEBRON GOT TO BEAT SOME OTHER PEOPLE ON THE MOUNT RUSHMORE, EVERYONE. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT PLAYED BASKETBALL THAT HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SOME THINGS, AND ACHIEVED A LEVEL OF GREATNESS, THAT LEBRON JUST HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO. YOU WANT ME TO NAME THEM FOR YOU? BESIDES MICHAEL JORDAN? YOU’VE EVER HEARD OF A GUY NAME KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR? YOU’VE EVER HEARD OF A GUY NAMED BILL RUSSELL? YOU’VE EVER HEARD OF A GUY NAMED EARVIN “MAGIC” JOHNSON? WHEN DID LEBRON PASSED MAGIC? DID I MISS SOMETHING?”Jalen Rose
