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.”

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: During my more than 50 years in the public eye, I have met hundreds of renowned celebrities, artists, athletes, and world leaders. But only a handful embodied the self-sacrificing and heroic qualities that defined my friend and mentor, Muhammad Ali. A master of self-promotion, he declared early in his boxing career, I am the greatest! This kind of boasting enraged many people, just as he’d hoped, ensuring a large audience that just wanted to see this upstart boy taught a lesson. But it was Muhammad who taught the lesson because, as he once said, It’s not bragging if you can back it up. And back it up, he did. Again and again. And not just in the ring. Part of Muhammad’s greatness was his ability to be different things to different people.
