Throughout the history of the Los Angeles Lakers, there have been historic names. Among some of those great figures are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, and Will Chamberlain among others. And undoubtedly surpassing what all these characters did with the jersey of the Los Angeles Lakers is not an easy thing to do. From this point arises the question of whether or not LeBron James will be one of the greatest Lakers in history when he retires.

Undoubtedly the king LeBron James is already in the history of the Los Angeles Lakers despite being out of the playoffs in two of the four seasons he has been in California, LeBron James was able to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to the awaited title number 17 to tie the most hated rival; the Boston Celtics. In that Finals, LeBron won the Finals MVP after beating the Miami Heat in 6 games, that season was played on the bubble in Orlando due to covid-19. This championship takes on more importance as it was dedicated to the then recently deceased Kobe Bryant.

The great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tells us the whole truth about the history of the Los Angeles Lakers.

What Vanessa Bryant is demanding after the invasion of her and her family's privacy.

Well, for a former teammate of King LeBron James, the answer is clear. According to Richard Jefferson, who played with James on the Cleveland Cavaliers, the King hasn't done enough to be considered among the greatest Lakers of all time. "LeBron James has not done enough as a Laker to be on that list," Jefferson said. "Bron been there now - this is his fourth season, right? They've been in there four seasons. Two years, they haven't made the postseason. One year, they lost in the first round. And one year, they won a championship."

Actually surpassing the championships of Kareem, Kobe, and Magic as Lakers will be practically impossible purely as a matter of time. LeBron James can reach them in total championships but not as a Laker. Remember that James currently has 4 championships in his career, one of them the already mentioned with the Lakers. But we want to say to all those people who doubt the ability of the King of kings, that he still has a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers and although he is 37 years old, his retirement is not near because he is still at a very high level, so much that he averaged over 30 points last season. We are confident that he will bring 1 or 2 more rings to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Will he still be a Laker?

LeBron's possible extension is on track according to Lakers insiders. Rob Pelinka has reportedly told the king that he wants him to retire as a Laker and that he would do everything possible to compete for a ring for as many seasons as he has left as a pro. LeBron is about to enter his 20th season and like fine wine, he just keeps getting better with time.
