After winning back-to-back championships to accompany back-to-back NBA Finals MVPs, how much better can you truly get? Well according to LeBron James, his talents are still on the rise.
“I know you guys are sick of hearing it, but I got better,” said James in a recent press conference.
The four-time regular season MVP posted all-time highs in rebounds, field goal percentage and 3-point percentage last season. Now the NBA superstar is boasting that he’s even better than his seasons prior? That’s a scary thought for the rest of the league.
It seems somewhat ludicrous to think the best player in the world is only continuing to better his game. I mean, when will he reach his peak? James’ accolades truly speak for themselves, but the real question is if he can bring another championship to the city of Miami.
Although we’ve all secretly known that James has been chasing Michael Jordan‘s legacy for quite some time now, it’s good to hear him come out and say he wants to be the “greatest of all-time”.
Jordan won six NBA titles, including winning three back-to-back titles not once, but twice in his career. James and his Heat can accomplish that same feat this season by bringing a three-peat home to South Beach. Let’s see how much “better” King James really is when the season kicks off this October.
