The discussion about the greatest player in history has always had a more consistent answer, which is
"The best and most competitive player I have ever seen in my life is LeBron, both on and off the court," Thomas said on social networks. "He passed the test, and everything I saw The data also confirms this view. #The greatest in history, let everyone know!"
As we all know, Thomas had a lot of disagreements with Jordan in the past player era. Perhaps he praised LeBron for this reason. However, Thomas also said that Jordan is the greatest, and that Chamberlain and Kareem are the greatest players.
It is undeniable that LeBron has indeed established his own achievements in the NBA. He has been the strongest player in active service for a long time.
Last month Thomas also praised LeBron's amazing achievements in data, and used his own evaluation of players who have never seen such a player. At the time, he said that generally everyone has only seen players who dominate statistics in certain areas. I've never seen a player who can do everything, and LeBron did it, and it's been 17 seasons, so he thinks LeBron must be able to surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
At present, LeBron leads the Lakers to a 3-1 lead in the finals. Basically, winning the championship is a certainty. He will take another step towards his status as the greatest player.
