LeBron Raymone James Sr., the American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association, must now be considered one of the greatest basketball players in NBA history, if not the greatest, given his latest exploit.
The Los Angeles Lakers won their 17th NBA championship, led by the legend James, who was also named the series MVP for the fourth time. For those counting, this represents James’ fourth ring, with three different teams — a first in NBA history.
James’ fourth championship now places him in the pantheon of the sport alongside the likes of Michael Jordan, considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all time.
James has not only excelled on the courts but also his civil action for justice and freedom has gained him superstar status both locally and internationally.
James’ latest exploit did not go unnoticed by Barack Hussein Obama II, the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017, and the first African American President of the United States.
In a tweet on Twitter, the former President said:
“Proud of my friend @KingJames for his fourth title, fourth Finals MVP, and for not only living up to the hype after seventeen seasons, but surpassing it as an extraordinary leader both on the court and in the public arena fighting for education, social justice, and our democracy.”
Pundits have argued that LeBron James’ latest triumph is a victory not only for athletes but also for freedom-loving people everywhere.
