When you think about the greatest basketball players to ever play the game, the obvious names come to mind. Magic Johnson, Kareem, Jordan, and the list goes on and on.
LeBron James is now solidly on that list and has been hovering near the top for quite some time according to Colin Cowherd, which is even more remarkable when you consider the team which he came into the league as a part of.
All of the best stars inherited some form of role model on the franchise they stepped into and were able to play with good (or in some cases great) teammates from the first day forward.

You can hear The Herd with Colin Cowherd every weekday from 12-3 pm est. on Fox Sports Radio.
