This Sunday, LeBron James won the 4th ring of his career at NBA. This time at Los angeles lakers, shirt 23 received the MVP of the Finals for the 4th time and, at the age of 35, proved that he is still the King of the league.
After the conquest, the star participated in the SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt and compared the 35-year-old LeBron to the 27-year-old, who won the first title of his career in 2012, with the Miami Heat, opponent of this year’s Finals.
“The 35-year-old LeBron would say to the 27-year-old that he doesn’t even know the game itself. ‘You have no idea what he’s capable of.’ So I think if you put 35-year-old LeBron against the 27-year-old, he would dominate it. Simply by the mental part. ‘You can have all this athletic ability, but you don’t stand a chance with me’ “, he analyzed.
James also thanked his teammates for more than 100 days confined in the NBA bubble and said that “if it weren’t for the camaraderie, I wouldn’t have survived”.
“The camaraderie that takes place in the squad, being able to do things together on the court, but also outside it, was what allowed me to survive all this time without my family around,” he concluded.
