    It depends honestly. I don't do rankings strictly on rings and if Wade clearly outplays him (throughout the playoffs and especially in the Finals) and LeBron still gets the ring, he won't move up much, if at all. I already have him pretty high up as it is, and I can't see him surpassing the guys ahead of him with just a decent playoff run. It's going to have to be strong and just solid in general.

    It's a boost in perception though. I mean their are guys that don't need it but the reason Tim Duncan is the greatest PF over Karl Malone is because of rings is it not?

    I mean I'd call him a faggot but I've only had one run in with him personally, and he might call my job or some shit.

    Anyway yo don't sweat it. Try to stay out of trouble but if you can't then just fuck shit up.

    It's because he's better than Karl Malone, I would think.

    And either way, the question doesn't make sense. What would be the point of asking an individual if Lebron would move up in rankings, if their opinion would be based on what the masses perceive (which no one can say or even predict).

    My rule of thumb is something like 2 MVPs is worth the same as 1 ring. It's how I keep track of Eli and Peyton Manning. :lmao

    I haven't considered how much a finals MVP is worth yet, though. :lmao

    It's very very very close. Malone was the way better offensive player but Duncan was a way better defender. Stockton probably inflated Malone's numbers a bit though. Point being though it's close and you can't say Duncan is definitely better unless you include those 4 rings.

    It's a hypothetical question though dude. If Lebron won 3 rings and his career played out to his averages where would he be ranked in your mind.

    He's still probably a top 25 player though.

    The problem is that the top 3 have 5 or more rings, so you can't really say 4 is the consensus top 3. :lmao

    Ever since 2007, Duncan vs Malone hasn't really been close for me. It was definitely Malone before the 2003 season, and then there were 4 years where you could really make a case either way.

    It being close doesn't mean you can't say one is definitely better. Wade and Lebron James are extremely close but James is still clearly superior.

    The same spot where I have him now. It would depend on how good he played and if he improved during that time naturally.

    And let's be real, the whole masses thing is dumb because the masses themselves are dumb. The masses don't even base things on rings, they base things on who they feel like praising. Do you see George Mikan on a lot of top ten list even though he was dominant? Who ever is relevant to society at that time is who's going to be praised the most, no one gives a hoot about people who are not covered by the media.

    Is this serious? Probably a top 25 player? I would love to hear someone mention 25 players who are better than Lebron James or Karl Malone.
