What does "best basketball player ever" mean

Is it in a team setting or measured on an individual basis?

I say the right way to define it is in a team setting because basketball is a team sport 99% of the time unless its 1 v 1.

going by that, Lebron James is the best basketball player in nba history.These finals has solidified my point because no matter his inefficiency he has one tool that still makes him the best player on the floor, his playmking abilities.He can not only score with the best of them, he can PASS with the best of them too.He is the greatest scorer and passer combo player  in nba history.The only man that can consistently drop 35 while elevating the play of the other 4 starters on his team.That is a talent that separates him from the others on a 5 v 5 setting.

He is pushing a 67 win team to at least 6 games in an nba final with a lineup consisting of himself,shumpert,deledova,thompson, and mozgov.

all names that will never be remembered.

No one knows, at this point it's a matter of opinion but there's nothing Lebron is doing right now that Michael couldn't have if put into the same position.
Jordan never averaged 40 in a Finals and a near triple-double
Only a matter of time before LeBron is called the greatest ever

If the Warriors keep fucking up, anyway (they probably will).

he averaged 41/8.5/6.2/1.7 on 50% shooting against phoenix in 93.

Averaged 45 minutes a game too
Oh yeah :fly:

I keep thinking Wade has the highest PPG in a Finals series

Bron is killing shit but Mike is still the god and will always be man
"Will always" is a dangerous statement to make nowadays.

Bruh.  ISIS is dangerous.  Leaking unclassified documents is dangerous.  Fucking a hoe raw? Dangerous.

Saying MJ will always be the GOAT is pure law.

I don't think Lebron would've been able to handle how physical the NBA used to be. There wasn't the type of flopping you see today.
***** you're acting like he isn't way bigger than Jordan
Yeezus Shuttlesworth said:
he wouldn't flop back then obviously

He'd tank through the league if we're being honest
This. Flopping only exists because it's what the rules allow. Why the fuck would you do it if there was no benefit?
