When compared to the greats in the game, splitting hairs between championship appearances, championship wins, lifetime stats, personal achievements and hairline receding all come into play.
Lebron is already on the short list for best of all-time, and he may be just now reaching his peak as a player. But if he keeps losing championships, does that hurt his legacy?
Let’s say Lebron goes to 10 NBA championships in his career (very possible), if he only comes away with 3-4 wins, does that hurt him in the conversation of best ever?
MJ went 6 for 6 in the NBA Championship department. He also went 6 for 6 in NBA Finals MVP awards in the process, while never losing a game 6 or a game 7 in the Finals. Does this change how we think of Lebron?
