There’s the NBA, and then there’s this guy named LeBron James.

He is an absolute monster on the court. “The King,” as they call him, sometimes makes the world’s best basketball league look too easy. He can do it all, his career numbers are jaw dropping: 27.6 points, 6.9 dimes and 7.3 boards per game.

LeBron is indisputably the NBA’s best overall player and had himself another astonishing type year. James averaged 26.8 points, 7.3 assists and eight rebounds per game, which puts him as a runaway for yet another MVP award. He is most likely going to receive his fourth MVP award in the last five years.

LeBron’s physical attributes are also off the charts The King is 6’8 250–plus pounds and is unarguably one of the faster players in the league. When he attacks the basket it’s like a bull coming at you with the speed of a cheetah.

What makes LeBron particularly special is his ability to facilitate and make everyone around him better. At his height and size he is still one of the best point guards in the league with his gifted passing ability and incredible vision. He is more of a point forward than a small forward (listed small forward). James is looking for a second consecutive championship season, and I believe he will be successful once again.
