LEBRON HUMBLED WITH ANOTHER RECORD “We just hope we make Kobe and his family proud”

LeBron-James-Kobe-Bryant

“Every game, it feels like he’s breaking another record.” That’s how Anthony Davis summed up LeBron’s strongest GOAT argument - his longevity. Being one of the best players in the NBA for almost two decades is unprecedented, and last night he did it again. With his 162nd playoff win, LeBron became no.1 in playoff wins in NBA history. The former no.1 might surprise you - it was Derek Fisher

The fact it was Fish highlights longevity is underappreciated. Most people wouldn’t think of him in a million years. We praise tremendous seasons, triple-doubles, and high scoring games. Consistency isn’t as sexy and viral most of the time. After the game, Lebron was very humble about this historic achievement.

“It says that I played with a lot of great teams. It says that I played with a lot of great teammates and some great coaches. In Cleveland, in Miami, and now here in Los Angeles. You don’t get those wins without your teammates and the coaching staff that does all the preparations behind the scenes. The video coordinators, the guys that help rebound the basketball, the assistant coaches, the trainers, the athletic staff.”

In a regular NBA season, this achievement would probably happen in Staples Center in front of 20,000 fans. Jack Nicholson would be there to salute LeBron, and maybe Kobe would be there. Bryant made a point not to steal the highlight from LeBron and his era with the Lakers. But if Gigi insisted, they would’ve been there. Now, every record set in a Lakers jersey will have something extra to it. 

“At the end of the day, we just hope we make him and his family proud. That’s all it’s about.”

LeBron James

Not just Kobe and his family, LeBron mentioned they are doing it to make everyone who was ever a part of the Lakers proud. When you put on a jersey with so much history, there’s always a realization you have to live up to the standard set by Jerry West, Kareem, Magic, Shaq, and Kobe. 

LeBron is trying to add something special to Lakers’ history. He is going to have to boost that record to at least 172 wins to do it.
