LeBron James is one of the greatest to play the game. Oh, wait. He is the greatest player of all time. The Lakers forward received another big honor, and this only adds to his list of achievements. LeBron was named NBA Western Conference Player of the Month. He deserves this and much more. LeBron’s January was incredible, and he received a reward for that.
The GOAT averaged 25.4 points (.504 FG%), 8.1 rebounds, 10.4 assists, and 1.4 steals while leading the team to a 10-4 record in January. In 13 contests, LeBron stacked 13 double-digit scoring outings, including 10 games with 20+ points and five 30-point games. LeBron had double-digit assists in eight games, including a career-high-tying 19 assists in the game against the Orlando Magic. The king of basketball finished January with nine double-doubles, including three triple-doubles.
He is ready to try even harder.
LeBron is more than Player of the Month
For the 2019-20 season, LeBron is averaging 25.0 points, 7.7 rebounds, a career-high 10.7 assists and 1.3
steals in 34.8 minutes per game. He leads the Los Angeles Lakers to the best record in the Western Conference. King James was named Western Conference Player of
the Week on January 5 and was named an All-Star Game starter for an NBA-record
16th time after leading all players in voting for the fourth consecutive year.
LeBron is also the NBA’s leader in total assists,
assists per game and double-digit assist games. He earned his NBA-record 39th career monthly award. This is his first since March/April 2018. LeBron is the
first Laker to get this award since Kobe Bryant in February 2013.
When it comes to Kobe Bryant, LeBron will try to win this championship to honor him. The Black Mamba lost his life in a tragic crash last week. The basketball world mourns the loss, and LeBron can’t cope with the fact that Kobe is gone. He was his idol and a great friend.
LeBron has great motivation to move on, and he will do that for Kobe. This title is his, and Anthony Davis will help him snatch it. It’s a long season, but the Lakers lead the NBA.
