Two words: Kobe Bryant.
Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball player to ever play the game. That, however, might change once Lebron James finishes his career. Lebron is without a doubt the best basketball player right now in 2009 and will be for the rest of his career. Let's put it this way: Lebron James came out of high school and dominated in the NBA immediately. No one has done that in the history of the NBA. Although Michael Jordan was the "great one" Lebron James will be the greatest basketball player to play the game when he is done.
