LeBron James has now become the first man in NBA history to win Finals MVPs on three different NBA teams. He won his first two with Miami in 2012 and 2013. He followed that up with one with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, and now a fourth one with the LA Lakers in 2020.

LeBron James has fought through a lot to be in this position today. This was his 10th NBA Finals, and he headed into them with a 3-6 record. However, he has improved it to 4-6. The pressure LeBron James has faced year in and year out to be in these positions is crazy. Despite being outmatched more times than one, LeBron keeps willing his way into this high-pressure championship situations.

While there isn’t an iota of doubt over whether LeBron is the greatest player of this generation, there is a very valid argument for his position on the all-time rankings. He is still widely considered to be behind Michael Jordan, but LeBron is still active. Today he won his fourth NBA title on a third team. He led all those teams. That isn’t an achievement anyone can take away from LeBron. However, Jordan has a set legacy with his 6-0 Finals record.

King James has certainly made his voice in the G.O.A.T. debate a lot more prominent after this title win. It will be considered one of the hardest titles won due to the bubble. But there will also be detractors trying to take away from this. Nonetheless, greatness should be appreciated and LeBron James showed why he is the embodiment of greatness in the modern NBA.
