One in every of the largest debates when it comes to NBA records is who belongs within the league’s all-time starting 5.
It’s a question that many have both been requested or given a solution to.
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards, one of the league’s rising stars, was asked the question, and he gave an interesting answer.
First, he included Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James in his all-time starting five.
But beyond that, he included another player that may have showed a touch of narcissism and even arrogance, or perhaps it was simply a joke to lend some levity to the moment.
One thing is for sure: There is plenty of recency bias in Edwards’ list.
The big question is whether James is the greatest small forward in basketball history. Many think he is, but there are plenty who would still put Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird in that spot.
With the Lakers’ hire of Darvin Ham as their new head coach, fans are hoping that, if the team improves its roster, James can win his fifth NBA championship ring in 12 months and solidify his standing in the annals of history.
