Shaq is the greatest player to ever play the game and Lebron is second?

shaq is no doubt the greatest player of all time. There has never been a player as dominant as him to ever play the game and before some idiot says that it was because he is so big let me school you.

There has never been a player as dominant as him to ever play the game and before some idiot says that it was because he is so big let me school you. There were plenty of big players who never succeeded in this league because they don't have the skills or the work ethic to be good. Shaq was very skilled and had great footwork and is great form coast to coast. that is how he succeeded. He could post you up. He could cross you over (watch the videos). He could score over triple teams in his prime. He had an array of moves and he could play great defense on the low block. Great rebounder and great blocker. Shaq was the complete package and was the leader of three championship rings and co led with Dwyane Wade for his 4th. He carried the Lakers in the 2000 finals against the Pacers for his first title. Although he lost to Hakeem and the Rockets in his first finals appearance he outperformed Hakeem in the series. He came out of the gate ever since being drafted by the Orlando Magic and dominated the game from the start. Good passer for a Center and nobody has dominated the game like he has

Lebron is the second behind Shaq. He has also dominated the league ever since he was drafted by the Cavaliers and there has never been a player like Lebron. He is Mr Triple double. He can score. He can rebound and he is a great playmaker and passer. He can defend 5 positions and he has improved his jumpshot every year ever since he came to this league.He has had some great playoff moments and in his debut he immediately made an impact.There has never been a player with Lebrons combination of strength, skill, speed, and size outside of Shaq and he has lived up to expectations. He has proven to be a valuable asset to the Cavaliers now that they have struggled ever since he left in free agency and Miami has not done as great ever since his injury. Sure he has no championships but that is due to the lack of coaching and not having a reliable second option on the Cavs. He is the second greatest player to ever play the game and he can really do it all. He can play three positions very well the thing that is keeping him from surpassing Shaq as the greatest is the lack of a post presence.but other than that he is still the second best player to ever play the game.
