    How Long Was Lebron The Best Player In The League>?

    Its a consensus now that Curry is the best in the league and ended Lebron `s run this year but it`s also consensus to some that Lebron was only the best player in the league for only 2 years (2012-2014). So how long was Lebron actually the best but not just some overblown opinion or some made up crap for obvious people who won`t give him credit regardless.

    2007 or 2008 until last season... Curry was the MVP but bron was still the better player... Curry though is the best player in the league now but its easily 5 plus years.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    +5 years. People try and dog him and give Kobe more years but since 90 it has been MJ-Hakeem-MJ-Shaq-Duncan-Kobe-LeBron-Curry

    Bingo. A solid 6 year run, I'd start at the 07-08 season and go until 2012/13, so almost 7 years. But in KD's MVP season I thought he was legitimately the best in the game day in/out, and same with Curry over him last season.

    13-14' is also when a noticeable drop on defense came for Bron. But he clearly had one of the top 2-3 statistical runs of any player ever over that time period.

    2008-13 he was the consensus best player in the league.

    2007-08 it was LeBron or CP3 and 2013-14 him and KD were very close. Bron vastly outplayed KD in the 2014 playoffs though so I probably give the edge for that year.

    So you could argue 2007-14 but 2008-13 cannot be argued. No one was really close. Probably should've won every single one of those MVP's (maybe Dwight deserved 2010-11).

    Definitely from the 07-08 season to the 12-13 season. I would also throw in his 13-14 season but I would understand if people thought KD was the best player on the planet that season.

    I'd say at least 5 years. While I think Curry is a great player I still don't think he's the best. Scorers get wayyyyy too much glory these days.

    I am kinda surprised at how quick people are to crown Curry the best player in the world when he is still league average at best defensively.

    I would say both LeBron and Kawhi are better two way players than Curry. Curry's impact offensively is so huge it does hide his defensive shortcomings. And the fact he plays on an elite defensive team to hide his weakness on that side of the ball.

    I think 09-13 is the pretty obvious stretch for him. 14 and 15 he would still have been the player I chose to lead my team come post season and 08 was a toss up as well overall. Curry was very close last year though and played better in rs for sure so I get an argument against Lebron there.

    So arguably 08-15 and 09-13 is pretty easy call for him IMO.
