LeBron James’ greatest teammate may come as a surprise.
Throughout LeBron James’ 17-year career (Soon to be 18th in about six weeks!), there have been discussions on who his best teammate has been in the NBA. Is it his life long buddy Dwyane Wade? Chris Bosh? Kyrie Irving in Cleveland? Anthony Davis is now in the conversation now that the Los Angeles Lakers are on top of the NBA world. Lake Show Life introduces LeBron’s greatest and most important teammate.
It seems just like yesterday that the Los Angeles Lakers closed the deal and defeated the Miami Heat in six games wrapping up the franchise’s 17th NBA title. After the longest odyssey that included the complete overhaul of a front office, coaching staff, culture AND roster, compounded with the tragic loss of “The Icon” Kobe Bryant, the Lakers finally was the last team standing in the longest season in NBA history (There’s your asterisk folks!).
Championship teams do not have much to deal with in the offseason so the newswire has been quiet until last week. Sports pundits have relaunched the G.O.A.T. conversations trying to reset LeBron James’ position with the all-time greats.
Meanwhile, LeBron James combined celebrating a championship with monitoring one of the most intense President election runs in American history between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
After Joe Biden finished out on to become the President-Elect of the United States, LeBron turned off his social media “Zero Dark Thirty” in full force as he allowed his feelings to be known about how happy he was with the results of the Presidential election.
Quite the troll job from LeBron after Donald Trump said at one of his final rallies that he felt sorry for James because of the “low ratings” of the NBA playoffs.
In about six weeks, the Los Angeles Lakers will be back on the court and the conversation surrounding LeBron James will be his greatest teammate. Trust Lake Show Life folks, it’s coming.
- Will it be Dwayne Wade? His lifelong buddy, who brought four Finals appearances and two NBA titles to South Beach.
- Could it be Chris Bosh? The numbers will not show it, but he ended up adjusting from a franchise player to a third option on a “LeBron” team better than anyone. Think it’s easy? Ask Kevin Love or maybe Kyle Kuzma how hard it is.
- How about Kyrie Irving? Sure LeBron had the block, but “Uncle Drew” had the shot to win the 2016 NBA Finals.
- Now that Anthony Davis showed out in the postseason, the experts with short memories will hand it over to AD because it sounds polite with no chance of being challenged.
These guys are not even close to being LeBron James’ greatest teammate when it comes to his overall legacy. It has already been shown on this website that LeBron’s influence far extends the hardwood.
To the dismay of many, it is plain to see that the NBA players were essential to providing the much needed momentum needed to carry Biden to victory over the outgoing President, Donald Trump. The Black Lives Matter Movement was important and helped motivate African Americans to get out and vote in historical numbers.
With that being said, Lake Show Life would like to introduce you to LeBron James’ all time greatest teammate. The 44th president of the United States… Barack Obama.
The two have formed a partnership that has weakened the narrative to sports fans that African American athletes will no longer “Stick to sports”. This election is the blueprint showing athletes how to use their public platform to advocate for justice and democracy in the future.
Most NBA fans know about the friendship between the most famous NBA player and President of this era. Most know they collaborated to help people to get out and vote. What most people don’t know is the Barack Obama might have saved the NBA season when the players stepped away after the shooting of Jacob Blake.
Yes Lakers Nation, Barack Obama was a part of getting the season back on track when the players was done.
Over the next several pages, Lake Show Life goes in-depth outlining LeBron’s legacy that will affect positive change for democracy, racism and equality long after his career is over with the help of his best teammate he’s ever had in Barack Obama.
This work didn’t start a few months ago. It started a few years ago with just a simple insulting phrase that will tie sports and racism together forever.
