LeBron James wins the best dressed, best dunker, sneaker king, and player with most energy categories titles in the Lakers locker room. The Lakers IG post shows James voting for himself in all categories he won.
It seems like the recent NBA polls seemed to have rubbed LeBron James the wrong way. The results of the best NBA player and race to the 2022 MVP, in what many believe, had the Lakers superstar snubbed. Entering his 19th year in the league, King James is at the center of aspersions.
The 36-year old had a disappointing 2020-21 campaign with the Lakers being unable to defend their crown. James missed 27 games, the highest so far in his career. The 4x NBA champion had suffered a high ankle sprain that would continue to haunt him in the playoffs as well.
James’ critics saw this as a perfect opportunity to write him off. The Lakers made some significant changes to their roster, adding a lot of veteran talent. Despite these players being highly accomplished, the internet has been trolling the team. One of the reasons being these players are way past their prime.

Out of the ten categories, LeBron James won four, which was the most. The former scoring champion was the best dressed, sneaker king, most energetic, and the best dunker. Interestingly James voted for himself in all of the above categories.
There is no doubt that James has a great wardrobe, especially when it comes to his formal wear. The superstar even has a signature shoe collection with sports giant Nike. The 36-year old is a walking highlight reel when it comes to dunking.
Some of the other categories included class clown, best hair, and messiest locker. Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza, Carmelo Anthony, and Anthony Davis were the winners of these awards.
