With the NBA set to resume their season, Bleacher Report laid out just how much could be on the line for LeBron James.

The article said quote, “If James can lead the Lakers to a championship, he will send a message to the rest of the NBA that he is not ready to relinquish the title of the best basketball player in the world. It could reignite the greatest-of-all-time debate as well.”

Hear why the three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe agrees that the Los Angeles Lakers point forward is the greatest player in NBA history:

In 60 games so far this season, James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 10.6 assists per game, while shooting at 49.8 percent from the floor and 34.9 percent from deep.
