The New York Knicks legend John Starks has spoken on how he believes that the legacy of the Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been hurt by switching teams so much in his NBA career.

Starks compares LeBron's NBA path with other greats like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson, who all won all their championships with one franchise.

This could be debatable, as many believed LeBron James has more merit because he was able to lead three different NBA franchises to get the ultimate goal, win the championship title.

“LeBron is hurting his legacy by switching NBA teams so much that it will affect his standing when it comes to LeBron vs. Jordan debates,” Starks told Brandon Robinson. “Mike didn’t move around, didn’t want to move around. He wanted to play against the best. He felt like he didn’t need to go chase players to join his team to beat the best because he felt like he was the best, and I think that’s the difference. I think that’s probably going to hurt LeBron when you look at it in that perspective against Michael, Bird, and Magic. Those guys stayed with one team and they won with that team.”

LeBron James has a winning NBA career and is one of the greatest of all time

The four-time champion has won everywhere that he’s gone in his NBA career. James has two titles with the Miami Heat, one with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and one with the Lakers. He ended up making the NBA Finals in eight straight seasons from when he first joined the Heat through his second stint with Cleveland.
