    Jordan had Pippen for his run, he couldn't even pass the first round until Pippen showed up. Kobe didn't lead anyone to a dynasty, if you're referring to the 3peat that was clearly Shaq's team. Magic had Kareem who is a top 5 player. Duncan didn't lead a dynasty. And anyway, winning rings doesn't make a player "better". LeBron in his prime was the best offensive player in the league while being 1st team all defense and able to guard all 5 positions. None of the players you listed have anywhere close to his skill set of scoring, play making and D. Kobe and Duncan aren't anywhere close to LeBron as players. They might be "greater" because of rings, but that doesn't make them better. Check the stats, MVPs, finals MVPs and you can see who is better.

    The best offensive players win scoring titles right?

    The Bulls were one of the worst teams in the league. As a rookie Jordan led them to the playoffs. In Jordan's 2nd season he missed 64 games but lost to the great Boston celtics who won the championship that season. the next season he lost to the Celtics again who themselves lost to the Lakers in the finals. Then Pippen is drafted. The Bulls got better every season before Pippen. Pippen as a rookie didn't even start a game. The next 2 seasons they lost to Detroit who went on to win the Championship. You don't beat championship calibre teams over night it takes time and even a coaching change.

    Bryant was part of a dynasty for the first 3 rings and was was equally as important as Shaq in titles 2 and 3. When he went on to 2 more without Shaq proved how good he was.

    Thanks to Zone defence LeBron James is an All defensive player . Couldn't play man to man to save his life.

    ahhhh yes, the old "lebron does it all by himself" argument

    completely ignoring that he won two titles by teaming up with wade and bosh and another because of a historic choke job (while playing with kyrie and love) and lets also remember that if it wasn't for ray allen lebron would only have 2 titles

    i think lebron is a top 3 all time player but to say kobe and duncan are "nowhere near him" is just ridiculous
