Last summer, James announced decision three. He left his hometown team again, this time to the Los Angeles Lakers. This is a challenging choice. There are still some old Lakers fans questioning James during the season, and the team's internal and external troubles have also interrupted James' record of reaching the finals for eight consecutive seasons. In addition, James also suffered the most serious injury of his career. If you only look at this season, James joined the Lakers a bit unwise.
However, this is only the first half of the story. This summer’s operations proved James’ vision that the Lakers have become a strong team. James has said that he joined the Lakers is a family decision, but it is impossible not to consider basketball factors. Even if the Lakers are not the last NBA team that James played for, it is likely to be the penultimate team. There are at least 4 goals to be completed in his Lakers career or career.
First, get another MVP. James has won the regular season MVP 4 times, while Jordan is 5 times. The difference between the two is only once. James has always regarded Jordan as an idol and his goal to catch up and surpass. The number of MVPs is also one of the indicators. More importantly, if James gets the MVP of the regular season with the Lakers, he will get M in 3 different teams.VP, making history, James will have a chance next season.
The second goal is to win the championship. For the championship, no player will be too much. James has currently won 3 championships, including 2 for the Heat and 1 for the Cavaliers. Compared with Jordan's two consecutive championships and Kobe's 3+2, James does have a disadvantage in this honor. The Raptors’ experience proves that winning the championship may beIt is a summer's effort, James may win more championships in the future, and this possibility is extremely high.
The third goal is to retire the Lakers jersey. James has given the 23rd to the thick eyebrow brother. This jersey has not even helped the Lakers make the playoffs. If the new number can help the Lakers win the championship, it is not impossible to be retired. Today, the standard for retiring jerseys isLower, Conley, Brother Yi and others can be retired from the jersey, as long as there is a championship, James has hope. For the Lakers, if James is written into team history, it is also an honor in itself.
The fourth goal is to compete with father and son. After James joined the Lakers, his eldest son also entered the local basketball school, and has been awarded with Duke and other prestigious universities.Note. If James wants to wait until his son enters the NBA, he must be healthy. James has his own medical team in the Lakers, which is his privilege. It has the attraction of Zhan Mei combination. The depth of the Lakers' lineup is also very strong, which is conducive to prolonging his career.
