Kyle Kuzma Calls LeBron James G.O.A.T. as He Continues to Dominate in Year 17

On Monday, LeBron James led the Los Angeles Lakers to their eighth consecutive win with 33 points and 14 assists against the San Antonio Spurs.

Some may take James’ greatness for granted, but not teammate Kyle Kuzma.

So far this season, the four-time MVP has averaged 25.6 points a game on 49.3 percent shooting from the field while leading the league with 11.0 assists per game.

The fact that he’s doing this in his 17th season with an incredible amount of mileage on his body is simply amazing.

Not only has his outstanding play catapulted him back into the MVP conversation, but it has also reignited the long-standing debate about where James ranks on the list of the greatest players ever.

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith has alternated between praising and criticizing James over the years, but recently conceded that he’s the second greatest player of all time.

While James’ statistical accomplishments are almost second to none, he still has a 3-6 record in the NBA Finals.

Leading the Lakers to the world championship this season while continuing to play at this level would help James’ case as the greatest of all time (G.O.A.T.) immensely.
