LeBron James Reveals the Game He Became the Greatest Player
July 30, 2020
LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time and he is about to win his first title with the Los Angeles Lakers. His road to success started in 2003. The Cleveland Cavaliers selected LeBron as a No. 1 overall in the 2003 NBA Draft. The king decided to leave the team in 2010 after six All-Star appearances. It was a big decision, and LeBron had to make a move. He didn’t stay in Cleveland, and his Cavs fans hated him. “The Decision” shocked many fans, and LeBron was criticized over and over again. People in Cleveland forgot all the great things he had done for the team. Even Cavs coach Dan Gilbert said LeBron’s decision was “selfish, heartless, callous and cowardly betrayal.”
LeBron won two titles in Miami. The Heat played a strong Celtics team in the Eastern Conference Finals. Paul Pierce “drained” a three with LeBron right in front of him. this was a big trigger for the team.

LeBron appeared in an episode of “The Greatness Code” and talked about the way this shot made him feel.
“The day before and the day of the game, I said absolutely nothing to nobody. Had my headphones on. Listening to some great music. When the game started, I felt nothing. And that was the result of feeling nothing. I wish I could bottle nothing up.”
This “nothing” helped LeBron go 19-of-26 from the field. He finished with 45 points, and hauled in 15 rebounds. Miami had a big 98-79 win and won Game 7. The Oklahoma City Thunder wasn’t an obstacle, and LeBron had won his first NBA title.
According to the king, that win over Boston in Game 6 was made him the best player.
“I just got away from I’m not that guy (who left Cleveland). I know who I am. This is who I am. I’m that guy. That’s an African-American badass from Akron, Ohio and he’s the best player in the world. That’s what I felt like.”
Today, LeBron is going after his fourth championship, and he is wearing purple and gold. This ring would be the perfect tribute to Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.
