Continue to play top-10 defense.

Appearing on Wednesday’s episode of Undisputed, House says James can’t be considered the greatest of all time since he quit on the team in the 2011 Finals against the Mavericks.

I can’t get over the fact he didn’t show up in Dallas. Not only because I was on the team, but the fact he was the best player and everybody was dependent on him to show up and do what he does, and he was M.I.A. He had a bad series. Jordan never had that. People killed James Harden for having a bad series last year … but you going to say somebody who quit in the Finals, [at] the end of everything, when all the marbles are on the table, that he’s the greatest of all time? I can’t buy it.

James averaged 17.8 points in that Finals series against the Mavs, which included an 8-point performance in Game 4 and a horrible plus-minus in the series-clinching Game 6 (minus-24). He certainly didn’t play his best in that series, but to claim he actually quit is quite the allegation from House.
