A Twitter account named StatMuse has posted a stat that proves just how dominant LeBron James has been in his era.
James has been a force to be reckoned with right off the bat. He’s had a GOAT-caliber career and has made an indelible impact on millions.
The King’s greatness has been in front of us for so long, that people often take what he does for granted. LeBron entered the league with high expectations and has managed to exceed them all. StatMuse compiled all the stats which LeBron James leads in over the past 17 seasons.
