In my last article, I talked about the six teams vying for LeBron?s services during the prime years of his career. These teams have done everything in their power to entertain King James and try to lure him to their corner. The Cleveland Cavaliers have gone as far as creating a cartoon staring none other than LeBron James. Thankfully, tomorrow at 9pm on ESPN, all the rumors and speculation will be laid to rest when LeBron finally announces his decision.

At only 25 years of age, LeBron has already played seven NBA seasons and has made it to the NBA finals once in 2007. He is a very accomplished player who has already won two NBA MVP awards, not to mention several All-NBA team accolades. However, there is one major void in LeBron?s impressive resume. He has failed to win an NBA title. In fact, besides winning the gold medal in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics with an absolutely loaded redeem team, LeBron has not led a team to a championship in his professional career.

In a sport where your legacy is decided not by the amount of individual accolades you accumulate, but by the amount of championships you win, LeBron is off to a pretty poor start. He has already been swept in his only appearance in the NBA finals (albeit against Tim Duncan?s Spurs) and has failed to make it back to the finals since. All of LeBron?s ?witnesses? pointed to the fact that Michael Jordan did not win his first NBA Championship until his seventh season in the NBA, well guess what guys, season seven has now passed and LeBron is still without a NBA Championship. The only thing I have witnessed from King James is his uncanny ability to disappear in the later rounds of the NBA playoffs. The bigger the moment, the smaller he plays.

Let?s play a game of NBA comprehension. From the list below, choose the name that does not belong.

  • Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson

Do you give up?

If you picked Larry Bird, then you are racist. The answer is LeBron James. The major factor that all of these players share is that they have led their respective teams to multiple NBA Championships. I am not saying that LeBron James will never win an NBA Championship, but up to this point in time, he has simply not gotten the job done when it has mattered the most. So to whichever team LeBron James picks, you may want to temper your expectations because the joke could be on you.
