Should Lebron be compared to Duncan more so than kobe when it comes to ring count and legacy?
An argument that is never brought up is Lebron being compared to Duncan and his legacy.
Basically Duncan and Lebron are similar in that Duncan is the leader of his big 3 with TP and Manu, while Lebron is the leader of his big 3 with Wade and Bosh. Yet Duncan won in his first finals appearance with his big 3 (2003) while lebron lost in his first finals with his big 3(2011).
Also as an individual leader(no big 3) Duncan won in his first finals appearance 1999 while lebron lost in his first finals as an individual leader 2007.
If lebron can't surpass Duncan's 3/4 titles as being part of his own big 3 with wade and bosh then doesn't that mean Duncan's big 3 > lebrons big 3? Thus Lebron can't surpass Duncan all time?
Also on paper doesn't it seem that lebrons big 3 > Duncan's big 3 so if the heat can't win more than 3 rings then IMO that hurts Lebrons legacy as he had a stronger big 3.
