A lot of people counted LeBron-James, after he suffered a groin injury in the previous year. He promised to come back stronger than ever, and the whole summer he had a complete healing of his body, it was a blessing in disguise. He looked leaner and in the best shape of his career, in the summer months.
That, combined with his well-documented basketball skills, and a desire for revenge, and the majority of basketball insiders consider him to be one of the best players in the 2019-20 season, in spite of his age, and even in spite of the rise of the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kawhi Leonard.
LeBron James’ rankings of the season will be:
Sports Illustrated: 1
Bleacher Report: It Was 2 https://t.co/wWGNmWnCY9More : 2

Sports Illustrated and ESPN both ranked and if LeBron is the best player in the league, as Bleacher Report ranked him as the 2nd. We’re talking about a man who’s entering his 17th year in the league, the average player won’t even last 5 seasons.
She is still as dominant as ever. He has served as the Los Angeles Lakers’ starting point guard and run the point full-time for the first time in his career. What is the result? He is an average league-leading 10.1 assists per game, and is on his way to winning the first of his assists-leading title ever.
However, James does more than just that. Let’s ignore his 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.2 three-pointers, and 1.2 steals per game in 49/39/69 pictures for a second.
Some of us are most impressed about is The King of this season has been its defense. His desire and drive on the defensive end and will look the same as it was when he was a young player in the league. He has embraced the challenge of locking down the best players in the world, and he has been successful.
James, you can’t win the MVP award this season. However, it is clear that, until further notice, he is still one of the best players in the world.
