Well, LeBron James is also that person in the sporting world who has innumerable records but is never keen on reacting to those.

The Akron Hammer entered the league in 2003. With him entered stars like Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade. However, the way Bron kept getting better, reached his prime and maintained consistency, stayed unmatchable. As a result, he became one of the most successful NBA player ever.

Recently, he noticed a post on Twitter that stated what made him the #1 NBA player of his era. Take a look at how candidly he reacted to that discovery:

That is more than 12 areas where the L-Train is the world’s best since the time he entered the league. There are many star players who challenge these records very closely, but as of now, the kid from Akron rules.

What are the expectations from the 4-time NBA Champion now?

LeBron is in his 18th year in the league and already carries the pressure to help the Lakers win their 18th NBA title. If that happens, the franchise will beat the Boston Celtics to become the most successful NBA organization ever with the most championship wins. Also, a 36-YO Bron will stand next to Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, and other Hall of Famers’ five-title record. 

Apart from this, the 16-time NBA All-star and 4-time NBA MVP has already been in 14 postseasons and 10 NBA Finals. As a matter of fact, he still has 3 seasons to play for the Lakers and if all those lead him deep into the playoffs, his postseason records will almost turn invincible.
