LeBron James hailed as the greatest basketball Player of all time

LeBron James won his fourth NBA Finals MVP award, averaging 30.2 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 8.2 assists in these Finals going into tonight.

That astonishing feat made Lebron the first player to win NBA Finals MVP honours with three different teams on Sunday.

Winning his fourth Finals MVP moves him out of a tie with Magic Johnson, Tim Duncan and Shaquille O’Neal and into second all time — trailing only Michael Jordan, who won the award six times.

And according to LA Lakers coach Frank Vogel the Ohio native has cemented his status as the best player ‘the basketball universe has ever seen’.

While many still consider Jordan as the sport’s best player of all time, Vogel put James above him.

‘He’s the greatest player the basketball universe has ever seen,’ Vogel told reporters.

‘And if you think you know, you don’t know, okay, until you’re around him every day, you’re coaching him, you’re seeing his mind, you’re seeing his adjustments, seeing the way he leads the group.’

Lakers team mate Kyle Kuzma said James was a driving force on the court and off it.

‘He’s one of the greatest leaders in sports, not just the NBA,’ said Kuzma.

‘He’s always rallying the troops, talking in group chats and making sure everybody’s fine. Holds everybody to a high standard. Makes everybody accountable. Everything you want in a leader.’

James had said bringing the Larry O’Brien trophy back to Los Angeles for the first time since 2010 was his sole focus when he joined in the summer of 2018 after the franchise had fallen on hard times.

‘It means a lot to represent this franchise,’ said James.
