Devin Booker on what he told Jared Dudley about LeBron James
The Cleveland Cavaliers were led to yet another win in their Eastern Conference semifinals matchup against the Toronto Raptors to grab a commanding 3-0 series lead. It was once against led by star forward LeBron James putting up yet another huge all-around playoff performance that was all capped by his second game-winner in this year’s postseason.
How many times did I tell you that this year? https://t.co/BkZnBlkM8q

Although there are many that still point to previous all-time greats such as Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain holding that title, James has continued to build upon his case to one day receive that prestigious title. In his 15th season, he is still playing some of the best basketball of his career where many prior to him experienced a notable decline in their play at this point.
He has put that on full display in this year’s playoffs averaging 34.4 points on 54.8 percent shooting from the field with 9.9 rebounds, and 9.0 assists per contest. In fact, his 348 points scored through the first 10 games of the playoffs, which is second behind Jordan (354) for the most points over that stretch.
This is still a widely argued topic that has made it difficult for many to push James over the top as being the greatest player of all-time over some of the previous all-time talents. In the meantime, it is still an open book for the 33-year-old to strengthen his own resume.
