BASKETBALL: MY VIEW

Give me LeBron James all day long!

 

While many argue about who is the greatest NBA player, I have a vote for “Best Basketball Citizen,” aka best man. Sure, LeBron James has four rings, including one where the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors, the team with the best record ever, coming back, down 3-1. Sure, he has managed to stay in his prime more than 15 years into the game and has always made teammates better. 

Yes, he may be the most complete athlete to play the game, but LeBron James has also built a school for less fortunate kids. He is also there for his wife (high school sweetheart) and kids. He has also stepped forward and spoken out as a leader against injustice, unlike many of the people in the “greatest ever” category. Give him his respect. Not just as a player, but as a man, because as much as he has accomplished on the court, his best contributions are off the court. And that's where the game is won. 

Give me LeBron James all day long.
