This much is not a debate.
As far as his team is concerned, James leads the Miami Heat in points, rebounds and assists.
He could win his fourth MVP award this year along with his second NBA championship.
Just like we did with every other "best player" in the NBA before him, though, we will soon start searching for the "next LeBron."
This season is James' 10th in the league. While he might be getting better lately, he's not getting any younger.
With that in mind, I've ranked five players we could be referring to as the "next LeBron" in the years to come.
These five candidates range from high school prospects to players who are already in the NBA. It's important to note that by "next LeBron," I'm referring only to on-court performance and production.
These are five candidates that would earn the "next LeBron" tag by strictly dominating the NBA game.
