LeBron James has been shocking fans and doubters with his 25 ppg seasons for quite some time. The king of basketball has won four championships and he is getting ready for the next challenge.
The kid from Akron entered the 2013 NBA Draft as the hottest prospect. NBA experts predicted a bright future for LeBron and he met everyone’s expectations. LeBron became the best basketball player of all time. He is in the GOAT conversation and yes, he has earned a spot in the Hall of Fame. Many would agree that LeBron is better than Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan.
LeBron James to have another PPG season
LeBron helped the Lakers win their first title since Kobe Bryant’s retirement. He changed the perspective in LA. The Lakers entered the 2020-21 NBA season as favorites to win a back-to-back title. Well, things took a different turn and LA slipped to 7th seed in the Western Conference. LeBron sustained an injury on March 20. Anthony Davis was out since mid-February. He was out for a couple of months and his teammates struggled to stay afloat.
But, LA has a chance to make the playoffs. They have to defeat Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors first.
Let’s go back to LeBron’s greatness
The king of basketball turned 36 in December. Father Time has nothing on LeBron and he played his best basketball prior to the injury.
We got our hands on LeBron’s stats and we can compare him to other players. Oh, yes, he is among the best scorers in the NBA.
LeBron was averaging 25 points per game with the Lakers this season. He accomplished the feat for the 17th straight season. Great record, right? The second closest is 12 straight seasons. Jordan, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, and Karl Malone hold it.
Let’s not take things for granted. LeBron is the best basketball player out there. Doubters should get used to his dominance. He is not going anywhere in the near future.
His reaction to this accomplishment was amazing!
“Since I was 19 years old! And I’m a pass-first guy. Always been,” LeBron said on Twitter on Monday. “That’s why I’m never mentioned with the greats of scoring huh?? That’s perfect cause I’d rather keep it that way!”
