Despite what LeBron James has achieved in his NBA career, there are still people that believe he is not in the conversation to be one of the greatest of all-time.

The number of detractors is dwindling with every year and his performances against Golden State in the last two NBA finals have really solidified his place as one of the greats for many fans.

James' finals record - 3-4 - is often used against him, but Warriors head coach Steve Kerr believes his amazing ability to appear on the biggest stage is one of the greatest accomplishments ever. 

Kerr believes it was a mental problem that cost the Warriors in the finals and praised James for his record of appearing in the previous six finals.

The five-time champion, as a player, said: "The toll was more emotional than anything. Over time, that stuff adds up. That's why LeBron [James] going to the Finals six straight years is, to me, one of the great accomplishments of all time.

"Like, how many guys have done that? Maybe Bill Russell was the last guy. I know Michael didn't do it because he took a couple of years off. Larry Bird, Magic [Johnson] never did it. ... Six is incredible."
