LeBron James is entering his 21st NBA season, and while no one quite knows what to expect from him in the near future, his legacy is intact.
He has won four world championships and four regular season MVPs, and last season he tied Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most All-Star selections with 19 times. Of course, he also surpassed the legendary center of the Los Angeles Lakers in one of the more important aspects. Season – the most career scoring season in league history.
There is some debate as to where James belongs on the list of the greatest basketball players of all time. A growing number of people believe he is the greatest player of all time, including Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has amassed an impressive resume at just 28 years old.

Now, Antetokounmpo has teamed up with future Hall of Fame guard Damian Lillard, making his Milwaukee Bucks the favorite in many people’s minds to win the world championship this season. Perhaps fans will see Antetokounmpo and James go head-to-head in the NBA Finals this summer.
