Love him or hate him, LeBron James is good for basketball. You need a guy that stands out, that elevates the game to another level. LeBron James is the best player in the NBA right now. He’s a one-man show, but he’s also a great passer, he’s a willing team player. He’s not the best ever, but you could argue that he is, and that’s the sign of a great player. He came up in the spotlight. He was hailed as the next Michael Jordan. Despite all the attention and focus on him, he still emerged as a force to be reckoned with. He could have been and should have been a bust with all the pressure he was under. But now he has his ring. People will bash him for leaving his original team and chasing one. But that is what you need to do to become a legend. Charles Barkley never got a ring, and he will never be considered as one of the best for that simple reason.
LeBron James reminds me a lot of Barry Bonds. A lot of people loved him. It seemed even more people hated him. They would boo him, they would jeer him, they would taunt and heckle him. But when he stepped up to the plate everyone would shut the hell up and watch. Because they knew that they were about to witness the best in the game demonstrate why he is the best in the game. Barry never got his ring though. LeBron did.
Props to LeBron. Props to the NBA. A win for the best is a win for everyone.
