LeBron James took to Twitter and is coming for all the haters that think the king is past his prime and #washed.
In a poll conducted by NBA scouts and execs, The Los Angeles Lakers superstar didn’t receive any votes for the best player in the league and in typical LeBron James fashion, let everyone know about it.
The two players that received all the votes in the poll were Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant who both had spectacular seasons. Durant averaged 26.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game and Giannis had an even more impressive stat line averaging 28.1 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game.
While LeBron didn’t receive any votes for best player in the league, ESPN’s Tim Bontemps said King James was the only other viable star that could’ve been in the conversation.
“The only other name even mentioned by those polled was James, though he ultimately didn’t receive any votes,” Bontemps continued. “It was clear all three stars were on a level unto themselves at this point.”
Even the biggest LeBron James fanboys, can see nothing wrong with this poll. The NBA league execs and scouts got it right and LeBron will use this ‘lack of respect’ as motivation to win his fifth NBA title. It will likely be an uphill battle as his new-look Lakers roster is currently the oldest roster in NBA history.
