Throughout his entire career, LeBron James has drawn a lot of criticism for the players he's teamed up with. His haters claim that he can't win on his own so he needs other stars like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, or Anthony Davis to win.
Others say that James often plays to be the team's General Manager. They say he gets other players traded and often convinces his friends to join him. And while that could be true to some extent, we don't have any actual proof.
Well, those who say that kind of stuff will be livid to know that James has done it again. He put together an unbeatable team by his side, although this time will be for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game.
James will be joined by Luka Doncic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Stephen Curry, and Nikola Jokic on the starting five; and we can't think of many teams that could beat them.
Giannis Antetokounmpo went as far as to say that 'it was over' and that there was no way they lose to Kevin Durant's team with that kind of starting five. Nikola Jokic also reacted to the teammates he's going to be playing with in Atlanta:
“That’s a pretty good team, I’m not gonna lie," Jokic told Mike Singer.
Well, a 'pretty good team' is a huge understatement. We're talking about five of the best players of the past decade and, at worst, three future Hall of Famers.
Nikola Jokic has certainly come a long way. He went from being a Euroleague reject and a second-round pick to one of the leading candidates in the MVP race, so yeah, he definitely deserves to be on this kind of team.
