VIDEO: LeBron picks Jordan, Dr. J and Bird as top three players ever

By Royce Young | NBA writer

LeBron James was put on the spot by Fox Sports: Who are his top three players of all time?

"Michael Jordan, uh, wow," LeBron said. "Michael Jordan... wow this is tough. Michael Jordan... Dr. J, Larry Bird."

And you could tell, he didn't like his own answer.

"Can I get four?" LeBron asked.


"Magic," he said.

It's not an easy question for anyone to answer. Ask 100 people, and you might get 100 different combinations. Between Jordan, Bird, Julius Erving, Magic Johnson, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain, narrowing that down to is a painful exercise.

Question is, when does LeBron's name enter that conversation?
