I will be accepting a debate arguing Lebron James would not be the starting small forward on a All-Time NBA Team. Good luck.

I would think that Lebron would be the suitable small forward because I like his playing style. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a major Lebron fanboy. He's athletic, and can shoot threes. I am aware that he is sometimes flopping, but when it comes to a game without flopping, I would think that he will do a great job.

Looking at the great small forwards throughout the history game, Lebron James is no where near some of the NBA's all time greats. Lebron currently is ranked 20th on the all-time scoring list and is still behind Dominique Wilkens, the Hall of Fame Small Forward. Lebron's pedigree is no where near that of Celtic Legend Larry Bird. Bird, who Fox Sports named the greatest small forward of all-time, has three NBA titles and three straight MVP awards. Bird is also considered one of the game's greatest shooters. Lebron James has much to prove before he his an All-time NBA Great.

Based on the stats and arguments I mentioned in my earlier argument, Lebron James would not be the starting small forward on an All-Time NBA Team. Thank you for the debate, best of luck in the future.
