I think Lebron will end up top 5 for sure when everything is said and done. If he wins 5 or 6 rings he might be widely considered the 2nd best player of all time. But the fact that MJ never lost in the finals, and never even let a finals get to a game 7 is seriously impressive.
Doesn't take anything away from Lebron though.
If he would've hung around, he might have. There's no doubt in my mind Hakeem would of been the best player he ever
faced in a Finals. And no Center in Bulls history would come close to having an answer. No disrespect to Patrick Ewing, Mutumbo, Mourning, Shaq or any of those guys. But none of them could do anything with the Dream either. MJ running through them isn't exactly the same feat...
