LeBron James Says Kobe, Kareem Came To Mind For NBA Mount Rushmore
[new_royalslider id=”184″]

Great NBA players, past and present, always get presented with the question about their list of the greatest players to ever play the game. Arguably the best player in the league today, LeBron James, was posed this question recently.

With two NBA titles and four NBA MVPs to his credit, LeBron is getting a lot of consideration as one of the all-time greats. That being said, a lot of people want to know his list of NBA greats and he gave his Mount Rushmore version.

LeBron chose to go with Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson on his Mount Rushmore, but apparently gave serious consideration for two Lakers legends according to Fran Blineburry of NBA.com:

Most great players of the past consider Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as one of the all-time greats without question. Kareem has six titles, six MVPs and arguably the most unstoppable shot (skyhook) in the history of the game to go along with 19 All-Star appearances and the distinction as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.

Jabbar’s resume is impressive to say the least with Magic and Kobe Bryant coming in right behind him in terms of accomplishments as a Laker. Although many Lakers fans believe Kobe should’ve gotten much more consideration with LeBron playing in the same era for the majority of his career, it’s hard to argue with his list.

It’ll be interesting to see if Kobe can change LeBron’s mind with the two years left on deal with the Lakers.
