      Embid is not better than Anthony Davis. Davis had 1 bad game and ur taking him out the top 5? U just gonna forget that he dropped 40pt and 20reb and how Ad has actually been more defensive than Embid. And is a much better passer?

      @Damon Davis Durant and Westbrook were the best players after Kobe. People need to understand this as well...so many who have followed the NBA through the Lebron years have been brainwashed by the advertising machine from the announcers at games to the sports reporters and writers. Lebron was called King James and the chosen one as a high schooler. If the hype on LeBron was real he would have been doing things we never seen before or even thought was possible. He didn't compete in the dunk contest after promising the NBA world that he would. NBA basketball isn't just basketball it's basketball entertainment. The real greats have done it with championships and stats and entertaining at the highest levels. The one thing Lebron has over everyone else is the NBAs push and effort to make him the next best thing since Kareem Magic Bird Jordan and Kobe. Marketing wise the NBA believes in the Jordan recipe and really wanted Lebron to be that. He has had complete control of the ball since he was a rookie. He's had the referies...the steroids...the super teams. Nobody thinks about what playing on a super team does for a star player like that. Because of modern medicine and steroids...Lebron may play for another 10 years and continue to pad his stats. Which he has always done and if that happens he will own a ton of NBA records. That is what Lebron is. So many know this. If Lebron was better than Larry or the Goat I would give it to him. We all would. It's only Bron fans and Lebron himself that claims that he is on Jordans level. Jordan is the GOAT and probably always will be. I'm no Jordan fan...I mean...who isn't a Jordan fan? But I am a lifetime Laker fan born and raised in Los Angeles...my first favorite player was Magic and then it was Eddie Jones and after Eddie it was Kobe of course. I give credit where it is do even bad credit. Jordan is the GOAT. Kobe is the best to ever do it. Lebron has the same career averages and championships as Larry Bird. I take Larry over Lebron any day.

    Wait when LeBron is injured he is still the best but can't prove it but when KD is injured he isn't the best anymore because he can't play? See how Nick tries to change his criterias all the time to favor LeBron, even when he knows he's wrong.

                    14 years so since 2005? This guy should just give lebron his 4th ring and marry
                    Him. He wasn’t considered top 3 from 2005-2009 2010 was still behind Kobe and 2011 was the year he choked so more like 7-8 years

                                  Nobody thought LeBron James was washed up. I hate when the media makes things up so they have something to talk about.

                                    LeBron was not the best player between 05-11 LMFAO.

                                    It was KOBE. Heck, D-Wade was better than 'Bron for most of that stretch too.

                                        Why can't people just admire the man's greatness and stop comparing him to people who are already actual Hall of Famers. Lebron even though will be one is not one currently so will they stop debating if he is washed up or back to his best and actually talk about the NBA Teams. These Guys have never talked about the Phoenix Suns or the Sacramento Kings. Never say they would like a particular player or two to go to the Bulls, Charlotte or even Portland. Everything isn't about James Harden, Lebron and the Lakers

                                          2005-06and 2006-07Koby was a better player.
                                          2007-08 Koby was the MVP

                                          2009-10 Dereck rose was better but it is arguable
                                          2013 Durant could arguable be the best but LJ won in Miami.

                                          2016-2017 Kevin Durant was better (James lost finals to him and Duran was Finals MVP)
                                          2017-17 Durant was better (James lost finals to him and Duran was Finals MVP)
                                          2015-16 Curry was better.
                                          2018-19 K Leonard was better

                                          —>>So LB was better on 5 years 2009, 2010, 2012 Miami, 2013 Miami, 2015-16 Cavs.

                                          So of the thaw 15 year only 5 He was clearly the best one and still did not win the same amount of titles titles.
                                          He was the best 09-10 but Lost to Koby finals MVP 09 and final MVP 2010 because he didn’t show up to the finals.

                                                    So basically Nick is saying that Lebron has been the best player from 2006 until currently this season. I don't necessarily agree. 2006 Kobe, 2007 Kobe/Lebron/Duncan, 2008 Kobe, 2009 Kobe, 2010 Lebron, 2011 Lebron, 2012 Lebron, 2013 Lebron, 2014 KD, 2015 Lebron, 2016 Lebron/Curry, 2017 Lebron/Westbrook/Kawhi, 2018 Lebron, 2019 KD/Kawhi. So no.

                                                            Last 14 years? I think that's really reaching. That would be he started being the best player in the world before he made the Finals. This would be 2005. Let me just throw out a few names who were on top and were better than LeBron in 2005. Kobe, Duncan, Shaq. That's 3. Kobe, I believe was just over Duncan at this point even though Duncan came off back to back MVP's in 2002 and 2003 just a couple years before but LeBron was still not on their level from 2005 till about 2008. And you can argue not until the turn of the decade. Then when he was on the Heat and the first couple years on the Cavs, yeah, he was the best player in the NBA. Not gonna say he wasn't. From 2010 to 2016, those 6 years, LeBron was the undisputed best player in the NBA. But then a certain guy named Kevin Durant took his spot in 2017. Yeah, I know, the people who say he went to GS will be butthurt as all can be but when I saw KD on GS, it just looked like he had so much more freedom. So much more of an urge to prove something. And I believe KD has been the best player in the world until his ACL teared. Now, I say it is Kawhi. Even though if KD was healthy, I'd still go KD. I'm a guy who predicates defense. In my opinion, Kawhi is the best defender in this league and has grown pogressively in scoring year after year. Yes, he may be sitting out games but think about it. Did LeBron sit out games when he was the best player too? Yeah. Tons of them. In Miami and in Cleveland.

Kobe is the best to ever do it. Lebron hasn't passed Larry Bird let alone anyone else. Lebron and Larry have identical career averages and championships. The difference is Lebron did it with steroids and Larry did it with a bad back. Lebron has been swept from the finals how many times? Lebron has only won when he has been on super teams needing two other all star players to do it. If the hype on Lebron was real...he would have accomplished just one time...what Westbrook did 3 years in a row. Lebron couldn't win Olympic gold until Kobe came to lead the team. Wake Up...
