LeBron James is frequently compared with the great Michael Jordan in the GOAT debate. LeBron James has broken many records, and even a few of them he did not think he could. Like he said several times, he never thought anybody could beat Kareem’s all-time scoring record, let alone him. LeBron always emphasized assists, but becoming the all-time leading scorer is surreal.
James says it is an honor to share the space with these game greats like Karl and Kareem. In his 20 seasons long career, King James has achieved so much that is beyond some other player’s wildest imagination. He has four championships, four MVPs, and four MVPs in the final. King James even excelled where he wanted to, as in assists. He is placed fourth in the all-time top assists. Hence, it is not an over-the-top assessment if someone calls him the GOAT.
All-Star Game: Team Giannis Vs Team LeBron
Very few players can reach his level of greatness. After all, that’s said and done for LeBron James, nothing is more important than keep qualifying for the post-season. Winning more championships for the team and nothing else matters. Recently, in the All-Star game, LeBron James faced his first defeat at the hands of Team Giannis. King James always had the upper hand over the Greek Freak’s team. Giannis Sina Ugo Antetokounmpo has mentioned that for him, LeBron James is the perfect example. The 28-year-old wants to emulate what James has done in his long and illustrious career.

On the other hand, the Greek Freak was obviously eager to break that streak The King. Finally, he did it as Team Giannis won 184-175 against Team LeBron. King James could not play the whole game, as he sat on the bench for the latter half of the game. However, after his finger injury, James did not want to take any risks continuing. As he was thinking about the 23 games left for his NBA franchise. Furthermore, LeBron James is eager to stay fit. And wants to take part in as many games of these 23 matches as he can. King James said, “I cannot stay out of the NBA post-season for two years in a row. That’s not in my DNA. These 23 games for the Lakers will be the most crucial in my career.”
At 38, it does not matter how great LeBron James is, but he is human at the same time. The previous season Lebron was out for the most part due to injury when Anthony Davis carried the team on his shoulders but could not help the team take part in the post-season. Albeit LeBron James is fitter and playing more matches than in the previous one, he is still getting ankle and foot injuries now and then. However, the Lakers fans will hope this finger injury won’t be a major concern, and King James does a miracle to carry his team to the playoffs.
