Maybe yes,http://www.collegefun4u.com/track.php but he doesn't have a title:facepalm:

don't people like you ever get tired of saying the same thing?

People spend hours listing reason afterreason why he is great and that is the only argument against his greatness you can come up with. Its really kind of sad how much the haters clingto anything to discredit the greatest player of this generation.

I can't wait until he wins one...and then we can all listen as all the haters change their story to "he only has one..."

It would be great for him and for Heat fans if LeBron wins a title. But all in all, in the legacies and galore of NBA history, it won't have "as much" meaning in the eyes of all NBA fans and all associated with the NBA if he stuck with Cleveland and won the title with the Cavs.

you left out a bunch of stuff-

He has Wade and Bosh on his team
Its Wade's team, not LeBron's
If he is so great, he should have won a ring in Cleveland because he had 45 year old Shaq, and Big Z who was a quasi all star years ago
It was a shortened season, therefore there will always be an * next to it

Should I go on?
