LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers struggle to win a game, but the king is about to pass Michael Jordan on another milestone. He is brilliant!
The GOAT debate will never end, because there are fans who stand by both players. Do they know that LeBron needs just 13 points to pass Michael Jordan for fourth place on the league’s all-time scoring list? King James has 32,280 points and Jordan has 32,292. Kareem Abdul-Jabbas has 38,387 and Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant come next.
LeBron respects the basketball legend, and still remembers the first time they met.
“It was godly,” he said. “I’ve said that over and over before, but it was like meeting God for the first time. That’s what I felt like as a 16-year-old kid when I met MJ.
“Any time I’m even mentioned with the greats that played this game and guys before me who laid the path, laid the grounds in this work and allowed me to be in this position, it’s always humbling and gratifying for my city. Just knowing where I come from, some of you guys know where I come from that’s been there and some of you guys haven’t, but where I come from,there’s not many of us. It’s very limited. It’s very, very limited inspirations. Very limited resources. Very limited everything. So for me to be in this position where I’m at today, it’s just a blessing.”
Shannon Sharpe and many others are convinced that LeBron is the GOAT.
“LeBron is the GOAT,” Sharpe said. “The reason why I say Lebron James is the best is because I saw Michael Jordan win the title on a 57-win team Bulls, retire, and then they won 55 games. They were a horrible call away from getting to the Eastern Conference finals. I saw LeBron James leave Cleveland, they won the lottery. I saw LeBron James go to Miami, they go to the finals four straight times and win two. He leaves, and with two hall-of-fame players, they missed the play-offs.”
