Shortly after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavs to claim the 2017 NBA championship on Monday (June 12), fans began weighing in on LeBron James.
TMZ caught up with The Game outside The Parlor in Los Angeles immediately after the Cavs lost, who was extremely happy over the Warriors’ win, because he had just won $50,000.
Then, the Compton rapper talked LeBron. The cameraman first asked if James is still the best player, to which he replied: “The best player in the world is Michael Jordan. After that, its Kobe [Bryant].”
When asked if the lost tarnishes LeBron’s legacy, Game said yes. “It does [tarnish his legacy]. Kobe and Michael never lost in the Finals.”
If you missed Game 5. The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cavs to become the 2017 champs, losing just one game during the entire the playoffs. With the loss, LeBron is now 3-5 in the NBA Finals in his career.
What do you think? Do you agree with Game? Or, is LeBron still the greatest?
