LeBron James recently told NBATV's Steve Smith that the four players on his 'NBA Mount Rushmore' would be Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson.
He also said that when his career is over he will replace one of those players on the list.
"I’m going to be one of the top four who’s ever played this game. For sure. If they don’t want me to have one of those top four spots, they better find another spot on there. We gotta bump somebody. Somebody gotta get bumped," James told Smith.
On Wednesday night's edition of Yahoo SportsTalk Live, Jim Kozimor asked Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears and the San Francisco Chronicle's Ann Killion who would make the final cut on their Mount Rushmore.
Killion: "I'm really close to LeBron ... my only difference is Wilt Chamberlain. He was a legend. He was a myth ... there's not even footage of his 100-point game..."
Spears: "I got one surprise for you ... The greatest center in the history of the game -- Hakeem 'The Dream' Olajuwon. Plus we need somebody international on the Mount Rushmore as well..."
Like LeBron and Killion, Spears also had Jordan, Magic and Bird.
Who makes your final cut NBA fans? Is LeBron in your version or is it too soon to include him?
