Is LeBron James the most confused athlete of all time?
Is LeBron James the most confusing athlete of all time? Possibly.
Just when the world thought they knew him, a 6’8 260 pound freakishly athletic player who really up to this point in his career has not embraced late game pressure that well, but finally managed to win a championship ring last season.
James shocked the world in a recent interview by stating, “I want to be the best of all time. It’s that simple.” It goes without saying that for the most part he really has not handled pressure that well up to this point his career, but this statement will force his critics to place even more scrutiny on every decision he makes on and off the court.
Does this mean, he will start taking the last shot of the game on a consistent basis? That would be shocking.
Is he going to approach each basketball game with the same mental intensity as Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan? This would be absolutely surprising to even his most ardent supporters.
Or do these statements increase the likelihood, that James is seriously considering leaving the Miami Heat in 2014? Probably because as long as he is on the team regarded as the most talented coupled with being the overwhelming favorite to win the NBA championship each season, from a perception standpoint it will be almost impossible for him to claim to be the best.
It is great for fans across the world of the team that King James seems extremely focused heading into the season and it will be even more fascinating to see if he can live up to his own statements.
