Four-time NBA champion LeBron James wins on and off the court. He won a championship in his second year with the Lakers. His debut with the team didn’t go well and the Lakers missed the playoffs. The win inside the bubble added fuel to the GOAT debate. Yes, the thing between LeBron and Michael Jordan.
When it comes to MJ, Stephen A. Smith is a huge fan. He has nothing but terrible words for the Lakers superstar. Smith really likes Jordan and everything he did with the Chicago Bulls back in the days.
We all know that Smith won’t change his mind in the near future. LeBron suffered an injury on March 20 and missed a lot of time on the floor. But, he will soon return to action. LeBron and his teammates are making their way to the playoffs. Anthony Davis is back, too. LeBron and his teammates will have to go against the Clippers and the Brooklyn Nets. Will he win his fifth ring?
Smith will go crazy if LeBron wins
If LeBron wins a title this year, Smith will “bow down to the King.”
“If LeBron James goes through the Clippers with Kawhi and Paul George and Rondo — and then he goes and beats Kevin Durant along with Kyrie and James Harden,” Smith said to Kendrick Perkins on First Take. “I’m not going to go that far. He’ll never be No. 1 to me over MJ, but I will say this. I won’t have a critical word to say about LeBron James for the rest of his career.”
LeBron is in his 18th season. He is averaging 25.4 points and 7.9 assists per game.
King James missed the last 20 games due to a high-ankle sprain. LA went 8-12 without him and fell to the fifth seed in the West.
The Utah Jazz look really good on the floor and the same goes for the Phoenix Suns, Denver Nuggets and LA Clippers.
Davis is trying to make a return and Frank Vogel will increase his minutes on the floor.
