Michael Jordan and LeBron James are universally recognized as the two greatest basketball players in NBA history, though MJ gets the nod over LeBron by many pundits due to his perfect 6-0 Finals record with the Chicago Bulls.
Meanwhile, James is only 3-6 in the Finals and has been swept twice. However, it’s worth noting that LeBron is the only player in NBA history to rank top-10 all-time in points and assists. The King passed Jordan on the NBA’s all-time scoring list last season and eclipsed the late Kobe Bryant this year before Kobe tragically passed away in January.
LeBron has a good chance of improving his Finals record to 4-6 this year, as his Lakers have the best record in the West and are one of the favorites to win the 2020 title in Orlando, Florida.
After missing the playoffs in 2018-19 for the first time since his second year in the NBA, LeBron is primed to win his fourth ring since he has had time to rest during the hiatus and has All-Star big man Anthony Davis as his partner in crime.
Before games were suspended in March, LeBron was averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists. The four-time MVP was also shooting 49.8 percent from the field, 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line.
