    Those 3 have been larger than life stars in the world. Is there anyone in the NBA that can be the next big thing? Giannis might have the best chance. Curry? I know Curry has inspired this current crop of kids, but is/will he be on the level of the 3?

    No to Giannis, people who didn’t watch basketball know Lebron and knew who Kobe was. He’s the best player but people who don’t watch basketball don't knows who Giannis is, not sure why.

    Kobe was not a cultural icon before his ring

    And even so, one can become a cultural icon

    Was federer a cultural icon before he won a bunch of grand slams?

    Zion possibly(I said possibly)... outside of that only time will tell. NBA is in a transitioning period to me. Every major superstar not named Lebron either will never be on that level or will peak as a US megastar at best.

    Lebrin and kobe not on mj level.

    So let's eliminate them too.

    None of these guys will be mj.
    As they lack the skill level. Plus will not do the discoveryzone needed to ramp.
    Plus have no real attention to playing above the rim.
    Or technical mastery and full conversion of every shot in basketball.
    from being open to getting open under extreme duress.

    Plus no willingness to showcase their above the rim ability consistently.
    From the multiple dunk contests wins to actual in game actualization.
    To defeat the eastern seaboard misappropriation of erroneously placing bird over bill russell.
