Isiah Thomas officially declares Lakers superstar LeBron James as G.O.A.T.

LeBron James Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are on the verge of winning the franchise’s 17th title. This would be the fourth NBA title for LeBron James and his third with a different team.

With James on the cusp of an unprecedented accomplishment, Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas believes that the veteran forward will be officially the greatest player in NBA history, topping greats like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan.

Ironically, Thomas has had a longstanding beef with Jordan leading back to extremely physical playoff battles between the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls. The two NBA legends have never seen eye to eye and likely never will.

Jordan’s accomplishments have convinced many that he is truly the greatest of all time. Many could change their opinions if James leads the Lakers over the Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Obviously, the Lakers still have to get the best of the Heat in this best-of-seven series. Los Angeles has a 3-1 lead over Miami and is expected to come out on top in the Finals eventually.

However, if these NBA playoffs in the bubble have proven anything, anything can happen, and no team can be counted out, especially the Heat. Miami has been as resilient as any team in the NBA bubble and could make it a series with a win in Game 5.
