Without any doubt, LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world. His amazing performances are the reason why many people compare him to Michael Jordan, and James even has a chance to surpass Jordan as the greatest player of all time.

"In the end, it's Michael Jordan and it's LeBron James," Steve Kerr commented, praising LeBron and his greatness. As a head coach, Kerr met LeBron James three times in the NBA Finals. He also played for the Chicago Bulls for five years, between 1993 and 1998. Kerr was Michael Jordan's teammate for four years, and he was the best three-point shooter on the team.

Since he's seen the best of both these players, his compliments for LeBron should mean a lot. James is often compared to Jordan, but it has to be very special when the comparison comes from Jordan's former teammate.

Will James ever become the greatest?

LeBron James is 32 and he has won three championships so far in his career. He is one of the most gifted athletes of all time and his stats are simply breathtaking. However, he is still not considered the greatest player of all time, mostly because of his five losses in NBA Finals.

As most fans know it, Michael Jordan went 6-0 in the finals, while James is currently 3-5. However, James has plenty of time to improve his finals records, and just the fact that he's reached it eight times in 14 years is very impressive. Michael Jordan had a glorious career, but if anyone can surpass him in terms of greatness, then it's LeBron James. #Golden State Warriors
