LeBron James Ironically Explains Why He Is Not Mentioned Among The Greatest Scorers: "Since I Was 19 Years Old! And I’m A Pass-First Guy. Always Been. That’s Why I’m Never Mentioned With The Greats Of Scoring Huh?"


LeBron James is somebody that's not afraid of sharing his opinion on any matter. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is well outspoken on a variety of topics. Yet, it's rare to watch him making a case for himself on anything, but the King changed that in recent hours.

After StatMuse shared some numbers showing how great and consistent his scoring numbers have been since he entered the association, James echoed that. Next, he took to Instagram to call out people for not naming him among the greatest scorers of all time. 

"Since I was 19 years old! And I’m a pass first guy. Always been. That’s why I’m never mentioned with the greats of scoring huh?? That’s perfect cause I’d rather keep it that way!"

If that wasn't enough, StatMuse backed LeBron's claims and shared more numbers showing how dominant this man is and how easy it is for him to score. 

Still, not everybody enjoyed those comments. NBA fans called him out for getting sensitive even though his name is part of heated debates every day. Fans and players reacted to this post, sending some messages to Bron. 


Perhaps this is LeBron letting people know he's motivated and ready to roll with the Lakers this 2021 NBA playoffs. They will face the inspired Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors to clinch a playoffs berth. 

James just returned from an injury last weekend and he seems ready to lead his team to the promised land again while proving his doubters wrong.
