Yes. He痴 one of the top players ever, and him getting a championship for us almost guarantees (IMO) the statue. Whether he値l deserve it or not is a separate question.

This. Most likely: just like Wilt.

If he was to win 3 rings tho, it would at least be a conversation. But hey, maybe Wilt ends up getting one too.

If he wins a title maybe he gets a jersey in the rafters. He is not getting a statue unless he wins multiple titles.

But then again this is the ownership that put up those disgraceful stay ads for Dwight so who knows.

He wins 1, jersey goes up in the rafters. We pass Boston while he's here, he gets a statue.

His jersey will be retired no matter what and I think he won't have to do much to get a statue either. He's arguably the GOAT and they probably promised him a statue when they signed him.

You really think he has to win a title to get his jersey in the rafters? I think he could get hurt his first game and have to retire and they'd still put his jersey up.

That would be incredibly disrespectful to all the greats that have played for us.

Heck, not only our greats but even guys that actually contributed to titles and are not up there. Cooper, Horry, Fisher, Odom, etc.

No. Statues are for those who won three or more titles.

Of course if he LEADS us to a championship he値l get a statue. Jersey retirement guarantees excitement for a nationally televised game. A statue builds excitement but also will remind future stars that this could also be them... regardless of age or time spent.

nope, because of limited tenure as a laker

hmm, but just for the sake of discussion

hypothetically, after his current 4 year contract expires, what if he signed another 2-3 year contract (still playing at a relatively high level, maybe a borderline all star/sub-all star level), and then retired as a laker

so now he won one championship, played 7 years for the lakers at a high level, will break many career milestone records as a laker, and retire a laker as the arguable goat. does he get a statue?

Yes. 6+ years plus a ring? And one of the top 2 or 3 players of all time? Laker fans by that time have got to be petitioning for that right?

On the flip side, what if Lebron doesn't win a ring, stays only 4 years but makes the all star team each time.... Does he even get his jersey retired?

If he gets two and passes those green guys, maybe. If he beats them in one of those finals, yes.

+1. Whatever organizational reverence Wilt has received, or will in the future, will apply to LeBron.

depends on if he earns one. If he wins a ring and picks up a MVP, he is likely to get the jersey retired.....but it will take more for a statue. I think it helps him that the Lakers want his numbers in the rafters and a statues outside....but he will need to do enough to where it is not laughable.
