VIDEO // Chauncey Billups Savages LeBron Over “Greatest Player of All Time” Comment
LeBron James stirred the pot recently when he claimed he was the greatest of all time following his NBA Finals win against the 73-9 Golden State Warriors. They had the most wins of all time in the regular season, so you can understand why he thinks it was a big accomplishment, but it wasn’t big enough for Chauncey Billups. As a man who’s known for hitting big shots, he said LeBron could’ve had that opinion if he hit the series-clinching three that Kyrie Irving hit.

You have to somewhat agree with Big Shot Billups here.
Big-time players make big-time plays in big moments. LeBron can say all he wants how he beat the Warriors, but the truth is that Kyrie Irving did. Without Kyrie drilling that late three, LeBron can only talk about how he came close to taking down the Warriors instead of actually doing it.
He could also take after MJ and not talk about being the GOAT.
Next time he should just go ahead and make more jokes about the debate instead of giving Billups ammo.
