Lebron James

  LeBron James

The fact that LeBron came to play in the NBA right from the high-school says a lot about his basketball abilities. Not only that he came to play at a very young age, he also won the Rookie of the Year award at 19 years of age, averaging 20,9 PPG, 5,5 RPG, 5,9 APG and 1,6 steals-per-game. He made Cleveland Cavaliers relevant again by helping them get into the playoffs every year, a thing that wasn’t quite common for the organization before. In the 2006-07 season he played the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, but got swept. In the next three years the Celtics and Orlando Magic proved to be a little bit too much for LeBron and the Cavaliers, and because of that, he chose to form a super-team in Miami, joining the Heat together with his good friend, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and one of the greatest shooters of all-time, Ray Allen. In those four years spent there, he managed to win two Finals and lose two. One of them was kind of embarrassing, given the fact that he lost against Dirk Nowitzki’s Dallas Mavericks, a team that was full of old players. Despite of all that, he bounced back from that and won the Finals MVP each time Miami Heat won the trophy. In 2014, after he lost again in the Finals against Spurs, James chose to return back to Cleveland, promising that he would get them a ring. This happened in 2016, when LeBron and the Cavs made history by coming back from a 3-1 deficit. It was a standing point and the highest peak of his career. Unfortunately for him, he lost three of the four Finals played with the Cavs, against the Warriors. LeBron James also has won the MVP award four times, is a 15-time NBA All-Star and 6 time in All-Defensive team of the year.
