Stephen A. Smith, the always outspoken commentator known for his fiery takes, made waves recently with his comments about LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the NBA championship race. In a tweet by ClutchPoints (@ClutchPoints), Smith stated:

“If LeBron James & the Lakers beat the defending NBA champion Nuggets, they could win it all… Michael Jordan is the greatest player of all time… I don’t know how strong my argument is going for to be on behalf of MJ moving forward.”

Smith’s comments ignite a long-standing debate: LeBron James’ place among the NBA’s all-time greats and his ability to contend for championships at this stage of his career. The Lakers, currently battling for a playoff spot in the Western Conference, face an uphill climb. However, Smith believes that if they can overcome the challenge of the Denver Nuggets, the defending champions, then the Lakers have a shot at the title.

A championship for LeBron James at this point in his career would undoubtedly strengthen his claim to the “greatest of all time” (GOAT) title. James’ longevity, statistical dominance, and ability to elevate his teammates are already strong arguments in his favor. However, some critics point to the number of championships won by Michael Jordan (6) as the ultimate deciding factor.

Smith, a LeBron James supporter throughout his career, acknowledges Michael Jordan’s historical dominance. However, his comments suggest that a LeBron James championship win against the current contender, the Denver Nuggets, could throw the GOAT debate wide open again.

The road to the championship for the Lakers is undeniably challenging. The Western Conference is stacked with talented teams, and the Denver Nuggets, despite injuries, remain a formidable opponent. James himself has battled injuries this season, raising questions about his ability to carry the team deep into the playoffs.

At 38 years old, LeBron James is undeniably past his peak. However, he has defied expectations with his continued high level of play. Whether he has enough left in the tank to lead the Lakers on a championship run remains to be seen.
