Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been part of yet another debate. Well, we are used to this. LeBron has been part of many debates. The four-time NBA champion looked like the perfect MVP candidate in the first half of the regular season. We can’t say a word right now because LeBron is not player. But we do know that he is the best basketball player of all time.
LeBron led the Lakers to the top and his team was winning games without Anthony Davis. King James would have been the oldest player in league history to accomplish that.
However, LeBron suffered a high ankle sprain and had to leave the game on March 20. He had to miss a lot of time and some would say that this injury killed LeBron’s chances to win the award. The kid from Akron may be out of the race, but people still talk.
Brian Windhorst and Tim Bontemps talked on The Hoop Collective podcast. Things got really hot between these two.
Bontemps and Windhorst are valuable insiders and we don’t really get a chance to see them get involved in something like this. But, people get weird every time someone mentions LeBron James.
LeBron has a chance to snatch the award. James Harden, Nikola Jokic, and Joel Embiid were considered contenders, too. Harden is out due to an injury and Embiid has missed a lot of time. Jokic hasn’t suffered an injury but his game isn’t that great. Jamal Murray is out for the season. What does that mean?
LeBron can easily come back. He will return and lead his team to the top. This injury will motivate him to try harder. LA wasn’t really bad without him, but LeBron was there to encourage them to try harder.
The king of basketball was able to defy Father Time, so yes, he can do whatever pops in his mind.
