If Lebron is the GOAT then how did he allow younger star players to catch him in rings already in his era?

Draymond Green is 29, as is Klay. Does it bother you that KD allowed younger players like them to pass him in rings? I mean, KD will retire with at least one ring less than them, making him (by your logic) inferior to them both. Pretty sad, huh?


Warriors will never win another ring again without KD and KD will get at least one ring with the Nets if not two. The east is trash. Only team he has to worry about is Philly.

By the way Warriors lost both 2016 and 2019 Finals without him. I don’t see them getting another ring


Sure, buddy...Philly is not even the top 4 teams in the east this year. There's Boston, Toronto, Bucks. He has lot to worry about man.

Wait are you seriously trying to diminish the ‘11 Heat and pretend that wasn’t a stacked roster? Wade was considered a top 5 player (coming off 1st team all NBA honors) and Bosh was a multi time all star.

If that team wasn’t stacked idk what is
It was not a stacked team, they were not deep enough to win it.

Im pretty sure Lebron choked that finals away. Had Dwade gotten even a little bit of help the Heat could have won that series. Imagine if Lebron played like the GOAT you make him out to be. Mavs wouldn't have stood a chance.

Lebron averaging 17ppg is why they lost.

Credit to Dallas for limiting him in this particular series. After that he was not the same player anymore and became GOAT.

They lost because LeBron laid an egg.

Hmm your acting like that's a fact, the fact is what your saying is a opinion. Just pointing that out its important to keep perspective.

KD getting another ring is not a foregone conclusion at all.
