Video Details

Shannon Sharpe talks LeBron James with Skip Bayless. Find out why Shannon thinks 'The King' can cement his legacy with a NBA Finals win over the Golden State Warriors.

- For me-- I know you don't believe there's anything he can do. He can win the next six straight-- go to six straight Finals and win the Finals every year.

- Well, I would be-- I-- I--

- No way.

- Maybe we can start having a conversation.

- No, no.

- You predicting that?

- No. I-- for me-- get to the finals this year. Knock off that Warriors team. I'm going to have to do it, Skip.

SKIP BAYLESS: That was it?

- Because--

SKIP BAYLESS: That would put it over the top?

SHANNON SHARPE: --when it's all said and done, I believe he will be the all-time leader in points scored in NBA history. I believe he'll be a top five in assists. So you look at the stats. And then doing what-- to knock off that team, Skip, nobody's trying to minimize what Jordan accomplished. He was all-time great. But, Skip, he never beat a team like this. He never beat a team like the 73 and 9 Warriors. You know that. I know that. He's never beat a team that were in their prime and had four all NBA players with three MVPs-- one unanimous.

No, Skip-- no, no. You're going to have to give him his credit. Get to the Finals eight straight times-- so if he gets to the Finals this time, that'll be nine in 15 years. Jordan went to six in 15 years. Even if you put-- even with the way he took two years off. OK, we'll give him 17 years. You believe Jordan was going to eight straight Finals? We'll never know. That's not LeBron's fault. LeBron is now-- and get to the Finals this year. Knock off this Warriors team. For me, he already.

SKIP BAYLESS: That's it? Game over?



- The GOAT.
