Take 2

A different spin on sports by The Seattle Times staff and readers.

Does LeBron James make your all-time starting five?

LeBron James made a resounding statement Thursday night. I know I heard it.

James carried the Miami Heat to a second consecutive NBA championship with a monumental performance. His 37-point, 12-rebound smackdown of the San Antonio Spurs earned him MVP of the NBA Finals for the second straight year, which followed back-to-back regular season MVPs (and his fourth overall).

The honors are piling up for James. In the past 12 months, he has two NBA championships and an Olympic gold medal. And he is only 28.

It makes me wonder where he ranks among the greatest players of all time.

Is he the greatest ever? Is he No. 2 behind Michael Jordan? Is he in your all-time starting five? Or does he still have to do more to convince you?

That’s our Take 2 poll: Where do you rank King James?
