People ask LeBron James all the time who his biggest rival is?
Could it be Kevin Durant, or Paul Pierce maybe? If you ask LeBron, at this point in his career, he’d simply say nobody. James told the Miami Herald that the days of having a singular rivalry with one or two guys has passed, and at this point it’s simply about rings.
“It’s not just one guy,” James said. “I haven’t played against one individual for a long period of time — since basically it was me and Paul. Me and Paul, we had so many duels and almost every year we were going against Boston whether I was in Cleveland the last few years or Miami … So, I don’t know if there is one particular guy. There are some teams I believe are very competitive in both conferences, but it’s not just one guy.”
James at this point in his career is focused on team goals and championships.
