In his career, LeBron James has done things no other player has done. Originally, he was touted as the “next,” but LeBron built his career off his “firsts.” Until this year, he never lost in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, but the Phoenix Suns beat his Lakers.
LeBron James originally played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, from 2003-2010, leading them to the 2007 NBA Finals. From 2010-2014, he played for the Miami Heat, going to the Finals every year, and winning 2012 and 2013. He returned to Cleveland, from 2014-2018, going to the Finals, every year, and winning the 2016 title.
Currently, LeBron James’ Lakers are the defending NBA champions, until either the Suns or Bucks win the championship. Since his team was bounced, early, LeBron is showing up, during Game 5, courtside, to take the game in. He is there in support of the Suns’ Chris Paul, one of his best friends.
