Appearing on ESPN on Thursday afternoon, analyst Jeff Van Gundy was asked if LeBron James were to win the NBA Championship this season, where would it rank among James’ accomplishments.

Van Gundy not only answered it, but took it one step further:

“I believe it’s his greatest accomplishment so far,” Van Gundy said, “and I believe if he and his team are able to win this series, then it will be the greatest accomplishment I have seen in my time in the NBA.”

JVG has been in the league since 1989, when he was an assistant coach with the Knicks.

“To me, it’s very close to his 2007 Cleveland team, when he beat a really good Detroit team,” Van Gundy told ESPN. “But, I just think with the injuries here, the level of competition they’re playing in the Golden State Warriors, for them to win two games in this series the way he’s played, it far surpasses even the championships he won in Miami.”
