Following LeBron James' 39-point, 16-rebound, 11-assist performance in the Cavaliers' surprising Game 2 victory in the NBA Finals, long-time Celtic Antoine Walker tweeted out his feelings on James' place in league history:
Lebron james is a better magic Johnson we are watching greatest #Cavaliers 1-1— Antoine Walker (@WalkerAntoine8) June 8, 2015
The Magic Johnson comparison is an interesting one. I doubt Walker really believes Magic was better than Michael Jordan, but he's a solid frame of reference in the context of NBA Finals triple-doubles:

But come on 'Toine, where's your Celtic pride? How about the other name on that list? And as far as the "greatest" debate concerning LeBron, it's just too early to tell.
