I’m going to be one of the top four that’s ever played this game, for sure. And if they don’t want me to have one of those top four spots, they’d better find another spot on that mountain. Somebody’s gotta get bumped, but that’s not for me to decide. That’s for the architects.
In all honesty, it’s pretty difficult to disagree with James. Of course, who is dropped to replace James? And to a greater extent, who is going to be dropped to remove Kobe Bryant when he’s done playing?
Obviously you’re never going to take Michael Jordan or Bill Russell out of their spots, but James and Bryant are creeping their way onto that mountain of greatness.
