Lakers Superstar LeBron James Named the AP Top Male Athlete of Decade

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

LeBron James lived up to his promise of breaking one of the longest streaks in sports back in the 2016 season, as he was the driving force in bringing a championship to the city of Cleveland for the first time since 1964.

He left two years later, jetting for Los Angeles so he not only could continue his NBA career, but also to continue his life off the court, with chances in the Hollywood scene to become an even bigger star than he already is.

For his efforts on the court, James won a huge honor on Sunday, as he was bestowed as the “AP top male athlete of decade.”

If you use a sportpesa bonus code to bet the Lakers this year for James to win his 4th NBA title, it’s money well spent. After an ultra-rare year of missing the posteason, James has the Lakers focused, as they are sitting at 26-7, 2.5 games up on the Denver Nuggets for the best mark in the Western Conference.

Just running down James’ accomplishments over the last 10 years it’s hard to argue that anyone has come even close to his efforts.

Before last season he played in eight straight Finals. No player in the league has won more games or more MVP awards over the past 10 years than James.

Off the court he started a school in Akron, and in case you lost count he married his high school sweetheart and his oldest son seems to be on the fast track to playing someday in the NBA alongside his dad.

“You add another 10 years of learning and adversity, pitfalls, good, great, bad, and any smart person who wants to grow will learn from all those experiences,” James told the AP.

“A decade ago, I just turned 25. I’m about to be 35, and I’m just in a better [place] in my life and have a better understanding of what I want to get out of life.”

James is celebrating his 35th birthday today as the Lakers have an off day before they look for their 27th win of the year on New Year’s Day night against the Suns in Phoenix.

How good is James this season? He is on pace to lead the league in assists for the first time while remaining among the NBA’s scoring leaders.

Not bad for a guy who already has three titles and is playing in his 17th season in the NBA. It seems like he gets better every yer, and that’s scary to anyone that is on an opposing team.
