Many people have a lot of hate in their heart for Lebron James. People dissect his game and make it seem as if he’s not the best player in the league. Critics don’t realize the greatness that is in front of them. When was the last time we had a guy that looks like Karl Malone and moves like a point guard.
Everyone hates Lebron because he is the golden child. He stands out in a crowd and for some reason everyone wants to find a hole in his game. Well to be frank everyone has something that they don’t do well, but rarely do we have a guy who can do so many things great.
When Lebron made the move from Cleveland to Miami he had visions of winning multiple championships. He got to the championship in his first year and lost but he has returned to the championship again a year later and is poised to claim a title again. Everyone wants instant gratification but it takes time for teams to gel and get to championship level. Hell Shaq and Kobe were together five years before they won their championship together.
The reality is that it is not as easy as it seems. Injuries, trades, and schedules all play a role in how a team performs. Anything can deter a team from reaching its ultimate goal. All that being said, has there been a more consistent player in the NBA over the past four years? Has there been a more dominant player in the NBA over the past four years.
We are watching greatness and many of us can’t appreciate it because our hate for success has blinded us from the real truth. Lebron James is a star. Lebron James is the best in the business right now.
Everyone wants to question his ability but the fact is he’s just a more mature basketball player right now. He doesn’t watch television, participate on twitter, or get seen at public events during these playoffs. Lebron can be found in his home or hotel room reading a classic or contemporary book. When his jump shot isn’t falling, he goes to the post. When he’s playing against a faster team, he does what older guys do… He throws that weight around and makes his way to the hole.
So take off your blindfolds and stop the hate. It’s time to appreciate the greatness that is before you. Even if he never wins a title, don’t let your hate and disdain jade your judgment of greatness. Someday you will be able to say you witnessed it first hand, like your father did with Jordan.
