Is LeBron James Dead?

LeBron James is not dead, he is alive.  The NBA superstar is 32-years-old but continues to dominate the game.  King James turned 32 on Friday, December 30, 2016.  Russell Westbrook’s skills have been praised this season but the Oklahoma City Thunder are currently number 6 in the Western Conference.  LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers are the number 1 team in the Eastern Conference.

LeBron James is hoping to win his fourth NBA Championship this season.  The Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan comparisons are inevitable at this point in his career.  Kobe won five championships in his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.  Michael Jordan played 15 season in the NBA and won six championships.

The MLB wished King James a Happy Birthday with the following tweet:

The tweet explains that LeBron must play baseball to be considered the true goat.  Baseball is one reason LeBron has a chance to surpass Michael Jordan’s six championships.  In 1993, Jordan retired from the NBA.  The Chicago Bulls had won the NBA Championship in 1991, 1992 and 1993.

Alongside Scottie Pippen, Jordan dominated the league.  While LeBron and Kobe struggle to win their championships, MJ made it look easy.  If Jordan didn’t retire, the he could have won 10 championships in a row.
