Bill Russell Rumors
Simmons thinks so, but Barkley flatly admitted that there’s nothing LeBron can ever do to change his mind and displace Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or Wilt Chamberlain from his top 5 list. “I’m not going to just move him past Tim Duncan and Kobe. They didn’t just die,” Barkley said. “ But I will say this about LeBron James: I’ve never seen a man coming out of high school who has handled the success, been a great player, never got in a stitch of trouble. It’s probably been the greatest career ever.”
But Shaw, who is in India to tip off NBA’s premier events the ACG-NBA Jump National Finals, is very impressed with what Curry and his boys have achieved so far. “Not taking away anything away from the fact that they are playing well and there is every possibility that they may set an NBA record if they win another 20 wins.” “But unlike the earlier days, the game today does not have dominant big men. Back in the days, there were Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul Jabbar then in my time there was Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, Shaquille O’Neal. Now there is no big player like that and they (Warriors) can get away with playing small ball,” says Shaw.
