LeBron James keeps demonstrating he's one of the best players to ever step foot on an NBA court, playing at a great level with the Los Angeles Lakers, leading the team to be one of the best in the Western Conference. James is playing his 18th season in the league and he just keeps going as if he was during his 20s.
He has been dominant during his entire career and as the years go by, his longevity impresses more and more people. Recently, Mychal Thompson praised him thanks to his talents and how dominant he is on the court, comparing him to two other Lakers legends. Klay Thompson's father said that he's the third most unstoppable player in NBA history.
“LeBron in the open court is the 3rd most UNSTOPPABLE play in NBA HISTORY… What's 1 n 2? That's easy…1)Kareem's hook… 2)Shaq’s Dunks…" Thompson wrote on Twitter.
Well, LeBron is indeed unstoppable in the open court, and he has more options than just dunking the ball on somebody or making an easy layup. The King is a machine and he's a muscled guy so if you try to get in his way, you're getting a lot of damage.
Kareem's shot was really unstoppable, it was unguardable and he mastered that. Shaq's dunks were something big to bear for his defenders. That man was a force and whoever tried to get in the middle of him and the ring would pay the consequences.
No wonder why Mychal, who works with the Lakers, has such big praise for LeBron and what he's able to do on the court night in and night out.
