Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is one of the all-time greats in the world of professional basketball. James suffered a very nasty injury to his right ankle in the Lakers’ game against the Atlanta Hawks back in March and despite making a return, James simply hasn’t been the same since the injury.
Despite all this, King James remains one of the richest NBA players of all time and for good reason and there are not many who can argue against his contributions to the sport.
LeBron James is also no stranger to breaking records as his name value has helped him tremendously in his own business ventures and other projects.
While speaking on SiriusXM NBA Radio after the Lakers won the NBA Finals last year, Hall Of Famer Jerry West gave huge praise to LeBron James and even called him.
Well LeBron James is just an amazing player. When you watch him play, he leaves nothing on the table in terms of his personal investment in the game, his work ethic. He’s maybe the smartest player I have ever seen play basketball.”
“Along with his enormous size, skill level, I’m a huge fan of his,” West continued. “And he’s someone who it’d be fun to play with because he plays the ultimate team game.”
LeBron James is more than determined to get back into form after his disappointing performance during the last season. It remains to be seen how good James will be next year.
