Alex Caruso has revealed when he realized LeBron James was the GOAT and not Michael Jordan. The Los Angeles Lakers are NBA champions after a very hard fought NBA Playoffs. This was a very crazy season in which a lot of atypical things happened. First, the NBA had to postpone the season for several months due to COVID.
They then restarted the season in a bubble format. This was very hard for the teams to get used to. LeBron James talked about how hard it was to stay in the bubble for such a long time.
“I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to compete for a championship,” James said. “That was my mindset once I entered the bubble, once I entered the quarantine process the first two days. And then right from my first practice my mindset was to, if I’m going to be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. And the main thing was for us to finish the season and compete for a championship.
“So that’s just been my mindset throughout these — I don’t even know how many days it is, whatever how many days it is, it feels like five years so it really doesn’t matter. I’ve been as locked in as I’ve ever been in my career.”
Alex Caruso Reveals When He Realised LeBron James Not Michael Jordan Was the GOAT
Now that the season is over and the Lakers are champions, other stories are coming out. One of those is the never ending debate between GOAT status of LeBron and MJ. Alex Caruso gave his two cents on the matter.
“When I grew up, I had this fascination with highlights and I was a huge Michael Jordan fan… I’ve never seen full games or see him play in person, all you get are these highlights, you’ve got game winners, you just got them locking people up, you got them dunking. In my head, I’am like, he does it all and this is like the best dude to ever do it.
“And then LeBron comes in like 2003 and we start watching him and then I get older and I start realizing more about basketball… I don’t know when it changed but there was somewhere around the year six-seven-eight for Lebron, when I was like this dude’s got to be the best basketball player to ever play. There is nobody that can do what he’s doing and then he did it for another 10 years.”
