The path to claiming GOAT status this season for LeBron James

During an appearance on ESPN, the former MVP explained “I think what LeBron James has accomplished is the greatest thing I've ever seen in sports. For an 18-year-old kid, coming to the NBA, and he's the only one that has been really good at 18. Like as good as Kobe was, he struggled his first few years. Kevin Gardner, all those guys. What LeBron James has done, to be 18 years old, come into the NBA, living up to the hype and never got into a stitch of trouble is one of the greatest things I've ever seen in sports.”

James' accomplishments speak for themselves. Since entering the league back in 2003, the ‘King’ has been as dominant as they come. As Barkley argued, he has lived to the hype of being a generational player. By the end of his career, he might be the leader in all major categories.

LeBron James' accomplishments

LeBron James is an 18-time all-star player, four-time MVP, four-time NBA champion and four-time Finals MVP. He was a scoring champion in 2008 and a assist champion in 2020. He's also the player with the most wins in playoff history. Now, this year he will probably end up surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time scoring leader.
