“I’m going Magic [Johnson] at the one, Jerry West at the two, Kobe [Bryant] at the three, myself at the four and Shaq [Shaquille O’Neal] at the five,” James said.
The four-time MVP, who is second on the all-time NBA scoring list, snubbed the one person who is ahead of him in that regard: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The former Laker and six-time NBA champion is one of the best players to ever live but James did acknowledge the center and explained his reasoning.
“I love Kareem too, man, I can’t even front on that,” James added. “But Shaq’s so dominant. We need a big because I’m playing the four.”
