    Dr J Erving Leaves LeBron James Off Of All-Time 1st And 2nd Team

    Sixers legend Julius Erving doesn't have LeBron James on all-time NBA teams

    Ky Karlin
    4/28/21


    Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James is certainly a polarizing figure in the “who is the greatest of all time?” debate. Some will look at his individual numbers and accomplishments and say he is for sure, at least, in the top five of all time.

    Then there are others who look at the super teams he has been on and use that as an argument against him.

    James has certainly had some superstar teammates with him, such as Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with the Miami Heat, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Anthony Davis with the Lakers. Having that much talent can make it easier to win the titles he has won and that can be tough to argue against.

    Philadelphia 76ers legend Julius Erving hopped on the “Posted Up” podcast with Chris Haynes of Yahoo! sports and for those super team reasons, he does not have James on his all-time NBA teams:

    "He’s the guy who had led the charge in terms of super teams being put together. He put together a team in Miami, he basically put together a team in Cleveland as well, and put together a team in Los Angeles. So he can pick his own team, I ain’t going to pick his team."

    There is no mistake James is an all-time great, but where one ranks him amongst those greats, will be up to the eye of the beholder. Clearly, Erving is not impressed with the titles that James has won due to the way he has gone about it.

    Erving named Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, and Elgin Baylor to his first team, and Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Karl Malone, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to the second team. He went on to explain why he ultimately decided to exclude James.

    He has Jordan on the 2nd team. His cred is shot after that. Jordan and Lebron are top 2. Often former players donít have a clue, thatís why they make for lousy GMís

    if he swapped Oscar for MJ i'd say he'd be pretty accurate

    that said, i can see why he differentiated the two teams by the different generations they represented, makes sense in that regard

    Who cares

    All time teams are stupid except for baseball & hockey.

    Football is a joke. This draft alone proves that...top 10 pix will all be offense

    NBA changed rules so Jordan could be defended, then changed them so LeBron could not be defended.

    So Dr J is right...there are 3 all time teams currently.

    The Wilt era (40s to 75)
    The Bird era (75 to 95
    The Jordan era (95 to 2010)
    The LeBron era.....

    John be pick-pocketing the ball from the defending team (ALL-Time Steals Leader)

    I'd take Mikan off, since have height with McHale, Dirk, and Bird.

    Give me Havlichek in his place. Very under rated player, and still an all time great

    I think Dr. J made that list since Jeanie Buss excluded Jerry West and included LeBrick on her all time Laker list

    Who are we kidding? Jerry West is probably the most important Laker to put on the uniform. Not just as a player but also as a GM

    I don't even consider LeBrick as a true Laker

    Chief lebrick too busy managing the police. He doesn't care about baskets. Besides he has lost more nba finals that it is a total humiliation

    Damn... that's tough. I got Kobe ahead of James. No one made more clutch shots in a 4th quarter than Kobe Bryant... I'm sorry.

    I wonder how Dr. J considers his Sixer teams from 83-87 when he left? Moses Malone, himself, Maurice Cheeks, Bobby Jones, and Charles Barkley are all in the HoF, and Andrew Toney was an all-star who could have made HoF had he not had the foot injuries.

    I think getting Moses started the super team crap. Moses was a great player but getting 25 rebounds a night off of 20 of his own bricks can really pad a stat sheet

    I wonder how Lebron would have done (with the brick for brains Trump voters)if he didn’t say anything politically and the mental midgets on this site didn’t have that on the front of their minds on why they hate him.
