Video: Byron Scott Takes Stand on LeBron’s Rank in Today’s NBA
- Updated: April 19, 2017
The NBA has experienced a superstar revival over the past few months. With MVP candidates James Harden and Russell Westbrook putting up historic numbers and San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard growing elite offensively, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has seemingly flown under the radar.
However, according to former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott, James is without a doubt still the best player in today’s game.

While much of the debate will depend on how far the former MVP takes the Cavs this postseason, James has still done wonders this past regular season. The 32-year-old finished the regular season averaging 26.4 points in addition to a career-high 8.7 assists and 8.6 rebounds a game.
James will continue his quest for a fourth championship when the Cavs take on the Indiana Pacers on Thursday at 7 p.m. E/T at Bankers Life Fieldhouse for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
