When you have been performing at a supremely high level as LeBron James has been for nearly two decades, the list of iconic games can go on and on. Over his 19 seasons, James has been involved in many high-pressure situations, and he has delivered the goods more often than not, usually in spectacular fashion.
His incredible displays have netted him 4 titles, 4 Finals MVP awards, and 4 MVP awards, and there have been countless unforgettable moments in the process of accomplishing all of that. With that in mind, an NBA fan decided to compile LeBron's 29 most iconic games right from his rookie year, and the King was delighted when he found out about it.
Honestly, it's incredible to look at the games he has had and how far apart they are as well. His first 50-point game came when he was just 20 years old in 2005 against the Raptors and in March earlier this year, he had 50-point outings against the Warriors and the Wizards. His longevity is something we are unlikely to ever see again in the league and considering how great LeBron has been for so long, Stephen Jackson went as far as to say that he has been the best player in the league since his third season.
He has already pushed the limits of what people felt was achievable for a man with as much mileage on his body as he has and while he is slowing down a little bit, he is falling from such ridiculous heights, that he still remains a terror on the court. He averaged over 30 points per game last season and if the roster around him was remotely competent, then they would have made the playoffs at least.
Still, LeBron knows that for all his greatness, the clock is ticking on his career and he can ill afford another wasted season towards the end. That is why he still badly wants Kyrie Irving on the team despite all the headaches that come with him, as he just wants to have a better chance at winning it all. We saw numerous iconic playoff moments in that compilation and here is hoping that LeBron gets a chance to add a few more this upcoming season.
