Going into year 10 of his career, you would think hands down, that Lebron would be considered the best player of his time and would have everyone’s undying respect. Still it is hard to get people to like Lebron like they like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, or Shaq. The big is why? Has LeBron earned your respect? If so why? If not, why not? If you feel he has earned your respect is it because he finally won a championship? If not, is it because it was the way in which he left the Cleveland Cavaliers? Was it the ill advised “Decision” that was televised that turned you off?
How would you define greatness?
