Netizens Vote Lakers Star LeBron James To Break Eerie Record Next Season!

LeBron James has been the best player in the league for a long time. It has been over twenty years, but LeBron James is still the most sought-after NBA Player. From his high school days, the anticipations surrounding him have been skyrocketing. But LeBron James has lived up to way beyond his expectations. He never thought that he would break the all-time scoring record. The King thought about being the rookie of the year as well as leading the league in terms of assists, but the scoring record was not something he had his eyes on.

However, at 38, LeBron James broke the almost four-decades-old record of the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Moreover, he is a four-time champion of the NBA. On top of that, he did help the Cleveland Cavaliers end their title drought. Albeit, King James has a bad reputation, too, as some call him a drama queen. Recently, a poll on the net suggested that netizens believe if any player becomes the first victim of the new NBA rule for a technical foul due to flopping will be LeBron James.

Since his rookie season, the Cavaliers fans expected that the kid from Akron, Ohio, would help them win at least one title. That’s why the Cavaliers got him from the overall number-one pick back in 2003. However, the journey has not been easy since then. After seven years with the Cavaliers since 2003, LeBron James decided to move to Miami Heat to win a title finally. The Cleveland fans called him a traitor and whatnot.

But after winning a couple of titles with the Heat, he returned to the Cavaliers in 2015. The kid from Akron, Ohio, led the hometown franchise to four consecutive NBA Finals, finally winning in 2016. Hence, it was a dramatic and epic homecoming for King James. Later, he joined the iconic franchise Los Angeles Lakers and helped them win their 17th championship in 2020. Hence, it is needless to say that very few players can even dream of having such a career full of dramas.
