Yeah that's fine, but there's more to the game than just scoring.

Right now he's a top 20 player ever but will go down as the 2nd best ever.

The thing about that though, is that LeBron does so much on the court outside of scoring, just like Magic did, just like Bird did. You can't rank players greatness just based on scoring, especially LeBron because there are so many things he brings to his team every game. That doesn't really paint the entire picture...

Well,first,MJ's scoring stats are at another level than any of these guys.Second,while it's true scoring doesn't show the whole story,you can make one yourself.MJ did a lot of playmaking(6 APG)and as a DPOY you can realize he was a very good defender especially at steals and a good blocks amount,so MJ did everything,and he did it better than everybody else.MJ is first,and whoever is second isn't near him.

No need to put MJ on a pedestal we know how great he is. He was a great defender but James is arguably a better defender you can't go wrong with either, Jordan's steals and block numbers are inflated due to the era he played in. In fact everything was higher back then FG%, PPG, APG, RPG because of the extra number of possessions.

Same goes for anyone on this list.Okay,Lebron is a better defender than anyone of the list,besides MJ,but everyone of these guys did pretty much of everything.Larry was clutch and efficient as hell,a respectable number of rebounds and assists and also he was somewhat of a playmaker from the way he organized offense.You can say the same for Magic,the difference is his big playmaking and number of assists.Then you have Oscar Roberson,a guy who nearly averaged a triple double in a course of 6 years,and you can't really say that all he did was scoring.Kobe is Kobe,I'm sure many people can speak better for him than me.

I'm not saying these should be put on a list and certain player is in certain place,but most of the posts here only argued about how Lebron did more than just scoring,which happen to be what everybody on this list did.

This is way off-topic, but I love how Oscar Robertson is 539 games into his career at 28 and he's .6 rebounds away from averaging a career triple-double.

I actually think he can be better than Jordan

The game is much more than scoring, and with age LeBron's scoring will most likely dip, still LeBron's a great all-around player, already an all time great.
