LeBron James has been in the discussion for the NBA's greatest player of all time, since he won his third title. Now with one more championship in the bag and on the brink of breaking the all-time scoring record, the discussion is more alive than ever. According to NBA analyst Nick Wright, there's a way LeBron James can claim the GOAT title once and forever.

“I don't think the Lakers are going to win the title..But if in LeBron's 20th season, he not only passes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in all-time scoring, which will happen at some point this year. But he does it while playing at an all-NBA level, which he obviously did last year. And somehow, the team were to win the title. And it's the title that breaks the tie with the Lakers for most titles in franchise history. If that all were to happen, then the GOAT debate became an afterthought”, explained Nick Wright.

Michael Jordan recalls being intimidated by Lakers Legend

Right now, for many players and media people, Michael Jordan is the best player ever. LeBron James has more regular season and playoffs records, but some of them are for longevity. However,  Michael Jordan has more MVPS and titles won.

Nick Wright paints an unbelievable campaign for LeBron James, full of ‘ifs’. The Lakers still need to make a lot of moves in order to compete in the championship. Even if the team actually brings some players to upgrade the roster, there is no guarantee that they can win the championship with a West Conference so loaded.

LeBron James' path to GOAT status

Nick Wright has already painted a story that will help the case for LeBron James. But if he doesn't have an MVP season where he's undoubtedly the reason for his team's success, there will still be people who doubt that James is the GOAT.
