The Legends

History Of Hoops

So over all the years of the NBA has been around there have been many greats of the game. As I would call legends. Some are also in the league right now.

 Which brings me into the first legend. He is still in the NBA today. His name is LeBron James. In my opinion the 2nd best player ever but also some people say he is number 1. One of his great accomplishments is winning 4 rings. He won 2 championships with the Miami Heat, 1 with the Lakers, also one in Cleveland on the Cavaliers. He plays against a ton of really good players like Giannis, Joel Embiid and Simmons, Steph Curry, and others right now. But early in his career he played with some legends like, Kobe, Shaq, Dirk, Tim Duncan, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, and Kawhi Leonard. This is why LeBron is a legend.

Now onto my favorite player ever and what a lot of people say is the best player ever. His name was Micheal Jordan. Just like LeBron he won a lot of rings. Jordan won 6 rings with the Bulls. He had two three-peats with the Bulls. Jordan’s era there were different rules like fouling was not really strict he took a lot of hard hits while trying to drive to the hoop. Also when Jordan played he played many other legends like Shaq, Penny Hardaway, the duo in Utah of Stockton and Malone, Reggie Miller, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, the bad boy Pistons, and also many more NBA legends. Funny part is he played and did really well against them. This is why I think he is the best player of all time.
