but he never won a championship, same with Elgin Baylor, Pete Maravich...you gotta have enough help.
James' first stint with the Cavs he had no help. He moved to the Heat and had help (Ray Allen, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade) and won 2 championships. His second stint with the Cavs he won with help notably the talented but erratic Kyrie Irving and also Kevin Love). His last championship came with the Lakers where he has big man Anthony Davis' help (often injured though and you have to keep your fingers crossed every time he falls in fear that's he's injured again).
Another star who didn't win until he had help is Nikola Jokić of the Nuggets. In previous seasons his key teammates suffered injuries and weren't available for the post-season. This past season they were blessed, didn't sustain injuries and won.
My point again being, you gotta have help. Magic had an all-star Showtime line-up with Kareem, Worthy, Scott, Wilkes, Cooper etc. They could hardly do nothing but win.
Koby had plenty of help, first with Shaq, Horry and Fisher, then later with Pau Gasol and Luke Walton.
Jordan had Pippen, Rodman and shooters like Kerr, Armstrong and Paxton.
Bird of course had Parrish, McKale, Johnson, Ainge and later Bill Walton, so I don't buy your contentions about Lebron James at all, the NBA all-time scoring leader btw.
