Doc Rivers Calls LeBron James a Top-5 Player Of All Time

by October 30, 2016

LeBron James has already solidified himself as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, now it’s time to debate whether he’s a top-5 player to ever lace ’em up. Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers is already putting the Cavs superstar in his own top-5, and told NBC Sports Radio’s Dan Patrick that there is “no doubt” he should be on the list:

“Statistically speaking, and visually since I was the coach of the Celtics and we had a 3-2 lead and I watched him score 45, he is in the top five. There’s no doubt. LeBron has a different game. We’re so used to seeing skill looking graceful. We’re not used to seeing skill look so powerful. I think that rubs people wrong. But LeBron, statistically, championship wise, he’s one of the top-five players to ever play the game.”

Over the summer, LeBron said he’s chasing the “ghost” of Michael Jordan and has started the season looking like he’s making a bid for his fifth MVP award—the same number MJ won.
