Rasheed Wallace Shares Brutally Honest Admission On LeBron James
September 7, 2021
Rasheed Wallace is the most recent NBA legend to take a shot at LeBron James. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar has been making headlines from the very first time he entered the NBA. Some people couldn’t really accept the fact that he is a dominant force. LeBron was able to do a lot of great things in his NBA career and he is a real role model for young players.
The former NBA All-Star went on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast to talk about LeBron and his current role with the Lakers. According to him LeBron wouldn’t really fit in the game back in the 1990s. Of course, players from that era still tend to emphasize the difference in their style and game.
“He probably would’ve done good with his physical stature, with him being bigger than the majority of the rest of the players,” Wallace said. “So he probably would’ve held his own, but I don’t think he would be as successful as he is now. It’s a whole different era back then. I couldn’t necessarily say that he would’ve been a beast but I think he would’ve held his own.”
Rasheed Wallace made a shocking LeBron James comment
Wallace became an NBA player in the 1995-96 NBA season. He brought his career to an end following the 2009-10 season. However, he did come back to play in the 2012-13 season. It was time to say wave the final goodbye.
The game may have changed since Wallace debut in the 1990s. Three-point shots are more prominent these days. NBA games are officiated much differently in modern era. This doesn’t change the fact that LeBron is the best basketball player of all time.
Wallace won one ring in his career and earned four All-Star nods. He has career averages of 14.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game.
LeBron has a chance to add a few more rings to his portfolio. He is playing elite basketball and the Los Angeles Lakers built a championship-winning team. We all know what that means.
