LeBron James has built a legendary career as he prepares to begin his twentieth NBA season. He is one of the best players in the game, but he has encountered his share of adversaries along the way.
The LA Lakers forward has emerged as one of his generation’s most divisive professional sportsmen for a variety of reasons. While many people praise him for what he has accomplished over the past 20 years, others wait around every turn for him to fail.
LeBron has done well as the NBA’s spokesperson during his career, but he still receives criticism from time to time. The majority of the animosity stems from the eight-year period during which he switched teams many times. Others also mentioned his finals losing record.
One NBA icon opted to support the All-Star forward during a recent interview. LeBron has accomplished a lot in his career, and Jerry West believes that people should refrain from criticizing him.
“I greatly admire what he’s accomplished.”
“It’s hard for me to believe that someone doesn’t recognize his greatness. this guy does everything, he’s a swiss army knife. And he’s competitive as hell. Frankly I wish people would leave him alone.”
