Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been in the league for 18 years! While that alone is a huge accomplishment, he has also been one of the best players in the league for almost every season.
During his time in the NBA, LeBron has been spectacular for every team that he has played for. Thanks to his consistency throughout his career, James has collected a plethora of accolades, from winning regular season MVPs to being the best player on championship teams.
Even at the age of 36, he continues to amaze people night in and night out. This season, the King is leading the LA Lakers to defend their title from last season. But will he succeed?
With the NBA All-Star break coming soon, the first half of the season is almost over. Tonight, the league announced the starters for the glorious All-Star game. The players are selected by accounting for votes from fans and the media. As expected, LeBron James will once again captain the West All-Star.
This season will mark LeBron becoming an All-Star starter for the 17th time in his career. This is the all-time record, and LBJ has done it in consecutive years. The closest player to Bron’s streak was former NBA player Bob Cousy with 13 consecutive appearances.
One might even make a case for LeBron to win the fifth MVP of his career this season. He is averaging a stunning 25.7 points per game while shooting more than 50% from the field! These are without a doubt MVP-like numbers from him.
If Bron can maintain this form and lead the Lakers to an excellent record, there is a good chance that LBJ will become the MVP of the league once again. However, the biggest goal for him and the Lakers is to defend their NBA title.
Do you believe the team has what it takes to win back-to-back titles?
