A former NBA champion with the Boston Celtics, Eddie House lauded LeBron James for his durability to play the game for 18 years.
LeBron James is arguably one of the greatest players to ever play the game. For the last 18 years, Bron has been dominating the league, in ways that have never been done before.
Night in and night out, LBJ brings in all his efforts to win the game. His illustrious resume lets us know why James is the legit potential candidate for the GOAT debate alongside Michael Jordan. Recently, former NBA champion, Eddie House commended LeBron for the insane career he has.
House, who did have a decent 11-year long career, played during 2000-2011. He has practically seen LBJ enter as an 18-year-old, taking the league by a storm and turn into the legend he when the two played together. House said:
“It’s just the way it goes now. I feel like these guys feel, we’re not going to give you what we have right now. You’re not gonna be able to prepare for it. You’re not going to be able to see what we can give you until it’s time for us to give it to you.”
“I don’t agree with it. That’s why I gotta tip my hat to LeBron. Only reason why he’s not playing because of some of the signs he’s been hurt. If he’s available, he’s always out there on the court playing.”
LeBron James is putting up MVP-type numbers while leading his team to their second-consecutive title
This season, LeBron is more determined than ever. Coming off a championship season, the Lakers, behind LeBron’s leadership, still, look the favourites to win the title.
Despite the Brooklyn Nets assembling a mini All-Star team of their own, many fans and analysts still have LAL as strong title contenders. In his 18th NBA season, James has been having an MVP type of season.
He’s been leading the Lakers averaging 25.4 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.9 assists per game. However, a few weeks back, the Lakers forward left a game with an injured right ankle. Since then, Bron has yet to play a game.
With Bron and AD both sidelined due to injuries, it has been pretty tough for the team to search for wins. With a subpar 34-22 record, the Lakers are now placed 5th in the West.
Having only 16 games left in their regular season, LAL will want to enter the postseason with good momentum as LeBron James leading the pack to their back-to-back title.
