LeBron James believes he can be the best of all time

Published 1 Comments

Miami Heat star LeBron James has hinted that he believes he can become the greatest basketball player of all time.

Coming off the back of a season wherein he won a second title, captured his fourth MVP award and secured his second Finals MVP award, the 6ft 8in forward has every reason to be confident, but he did admit he needs to improve if he is to be considered the sport's best ever.

The majority of sporting fans consider Michael Jordan to have been the most accomplished player to have ever played the game but, even though James cites Jordan as a childhood hero, he believes he can be better.

“I want to be the greatest of all time,” James said.

“It’s that simple, I’m far away from it, but I see the light.”

The Heat star did admit that he had some work to do, but said he was committed to putting in the hard work it would take, not to become better than Jordan in the eyes of the public, but to be the best he can possibly be.

"I don’t do it to say I’m better than this guy or that guy. I do it for my own inspiration. I inspire myself. When I go out on the floor, I want to be the best of all time. That’s how I help myself each and every night.”

James will be aiming to win his third title this season, a feat that would definitely improve his already world-class reputation.
