Lakers superstar LeBron James is the best basketball player to ever walk on this planet. According to Douglas Gottlieb. LeBron follows Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan’s footsteps. The NBA analyst and sports talk radio host offered a few similarities in their career. Is LeBron really trying to catch the ghost from Chicago?
“What you saw from LeBron over the Last two games reminded me of Michael Jordan more so than the Championships. The last shot for most of us that Michael Jordan actually took..he made. It was against the Utah Jazz. I know he played for the Wizards, but like so many others, I delete that and empty that trash in my mind…What’s lost in that is Jordan also scored on the two previous possessions, and with the game tied and hanging in the balance, he stole the ball from Karl Malone in order to get that last possession. That was what LeBron was able to do for me, at least.”
LeBron follows Jordan’s footsteps
LeBron has played point guard all season. He is leading the NBA in assists and orchestrating the Lakers’ offense at an elite level. King James has been utterly dominant over the course of his last of his last nine games. He is averaging 30.0 points, 9.4 assists and 8.2 rebounds while shooting over 55 percent from the field and nearly 37 percent from beyond the arc.
This puts LeBron in the MVP conversation, and he has a really good chance to win the award this season. LeBron is ready to win his fourth title, and he has the best number in the entire league. Although he isn’t the favorite to win the MVP honors, LeBron will reclaim his throne. He leads the Lakers to a big win, and he receives a lot of help from his teammates.
Anthony Davis, Kyle Kuzma, JaVale McGee and the rest of the guys have built an incredible relationship with the king. Unlike last season, this season is full of chemistry and championship spirit. The Lakers have a chance to win the first title since Kobe Bryant’s time. Health concerns are probably the biggest concerns at the moment. LeBron, Davis and the rest of the players on the Lakers roster need to stay healthy to finish the season with a title.
