VIDEO: The Beat crew breaks down the Year of the King, LeBron James
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Whether you like it or not, it’s his time. There is no disputing it, not after the ride LeBron James has been on the past two-plus years and counting. Everything has come together for the man universally recognized as the best in the game.
He’s got it all, Olympic gold medals, MVP trophies, NBA titles and Finals MVPs, too. So who are we to deny the King his rightful seat atop the KIA Race to the MVP Ladder as we kick off the calendar year 2014?
The worthy challengers have done their part. Kevin Durant, LaMarcus Aldridge, Paul George, Chris Paul and the rest will do whatever they can to displace LeBron, to knock him off the throne, if you will. But they’ll likely be met with the same reality everyone has had to deal with here recently.
LeBron, fresh off of his 29th birthday celebration, is head and shoulders above the competition in almost every way imaginable, and the longer the season goes on the more obvious it becomes.
