Thank you for accepting my debate. I would first like to state that LeBron James has been the best in the NBA for about 6 straight years. This is due to the fact that his stats are unprecedented, his efficiency is sky high, he could dominate every position because of how versatile he is, and he has been to 5 straight NBA championships. Granted he has only won 2 of his last 5, he hasn't gotten the help he's needed in the games. For example, the series against the Warriors. LeBron dominated the series stat wise averaging 35.8 ppg, 13.3 rpg, and 8.8 apg with a below sub-par Cavs teams that was missing 2 of their stars in Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. Not to mention that this was their first year together and neither Love or Irving had even made the playoffs without James. All with this, the Cavs lead the series at one point with a 2-1 lead riding into Cleveland against one of the greatest teams of all time, the Golden State Warriors. You see, LeBron is not just the greatest player because of the statistics he puts up. He simply could change the outlook of any team he went on. You put him on any team and they're instantly a contender. You cannot say that about anyone else in the league right now. This is just one of the reasons I consider him still the best in the game.
