PJ Tucker Explains The LeBron James Version That Was Unstoppable, And It’s Not The One With Lakers

LeBron James is 38 years old now. He can still do things many young 20-year-olds won’t be able to do. That’s the reason why he is the greatest basketball player for many but included in general with Michael Jordan for the GOAT debate. He maintained 27 points score even in the 20th season of his career. King James is the all-time scoring leader. On social media, LeBron James has been giving love to all the members of the roster after the free agency picks. But the question is, when LeBron James will return, how valuable will he be for the team? The Lakers Nation worries that the King is not in his prime anymore.

Moreover, what would happen if he was in his prime? Some experts, fans, and old teammates say that LeBron James, back in the Miami Heat days, was just unstoppable. On the other hand, there are people who believe the King who returned to Cleveland Cavaliers was the best there ever was. Moreover, it can be true as LeBron James led his hometown franchise to four back-to-back NBA Finals from 2015 to 2018. However, he won only in 2016. But the 2016 victory ended the Cleveland curse.

Moreover, the Philadelphia 76ers power forward PJ Tucker believes LeBron James, in his second stint with the Cavaliers, was the best version of himself. He was simply unstoppable. Specifically, Tucker says that the first year after the King’s return, he looked physically different. It was a big difference. He was stronger than ever. Clearly, James was on a mission to bring a title home. Moreover, PJ Tucker added that nobody could guard him back in 2015. He mentioned, “I thought I could really guard him. But he showed some physicality. Absolutely unstoppable.

After a successful four-year time in Miami, he returned home with some inexperienced players like Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. But King James changed the Cavaliers into the best of the Eastern Conference. However, in 2015, the Cavaliers suffered a lot of injuries. Hence, King James did not have enough support. But the King was not giving up that easily. He gave one of the best Finals performances to push the Golden State Warriors to the sixth game. But the Dub Nation ended up winning the Finals. LeBron James had to wait for the next year to achieve his goal. 

Can King James Win One More Title?

After joining the Los Angeles Lakers, James won his 4th championship ring. Even James said in an interview a few months ago that he was feeling good physically. He has been jumping higher and running faster than young talents in the NBA. Moreover, LeBron James says that sometimes he surprises himself with his skills. Many consider King James to be a big freak of nature.

Moreover, the Lakers Nation and die-hard fans of James believe that the King can lead the 17-time champions to another title. But the general public is aware that LeBron James is not in his prime anymore. Now the Los Angeles Lakers rely on Anthony Davis to lead them to their 18th title. AD led the side to the conference finals last time. But James was doubtful about coming back for the next season. Albeit, the King cleared all the doubts saying he’ll be back for the next season.
