LeBron James is getting ready to face a new season with the Los Angeles Lakers, trying to get revenge after failing to defend their championship last season.
After an entertaining offseason, the purple and gold are ready to compete in the Western Conference and win their 18th NBA title. James will try to lead this team to the promised land again in an arduous quest.
People are already doubting his capacity of taking the Lakers to the championship, even explaining what can ruin the King's endeavor. Chris Broussard recently discussed this topic, explaining that James can win the ring. Still, if he doesn't, he already has a solid excuse for it.
James isn't getting any younger. Even though he's still playing at the highest level, the competition gets harder every year.
“Because of LeBron’s age, he’s like Tom Brady — he has a built-in excuse for not winning another championship. LeBron is 37, he’s in his 19th year so if he doesn’t win that will be an explanation of why,” Broussard said on First Things First.
That's a perfect explanation to LeBron's possible failure this season. However, it also speaks on how great this man is that at age 37, he's still in the conversation to win a championship as the best player on a team.
The Lakers have a long road ahead, but they created a competitive team for next season. Bron will have an excellent chance to win that 5th ring and increase his legend in the league.
