Former Miami Heat champ & NBA great, LeBron James, is no stranger to winning. Still, this week has been one heck of a week for arguably the greatest ever.
The Miami Heat were fortunate. Not only were they blessed by the basketball gods enough to have LeBron James as apart of their franchise and illustrious history, but they got his best years and a few championships along the way. That is an indisputable fact that even Miami Heat fans can’t ignore.
Heck though, how can you avoid winning when you are associated with the man we all know as King James? It’s practically impossible, as the man should change his moniker to King Midas, because everything he touches seems to turn into gold.
This week was no different for the Miami Heat/Cleveland Cavalier great and one of the best of all time, number one or number two to be exact, depending on how you look at it. While he always has good days, because he is who he is, this week, in particular, has been one hell of a week for LeBron.
Here’s what we mean.
First off and although rightfully so due to the health of his child, Avery Bradley announced that he wasn’t going to be traveling to Orlando to potentially finish the season in the NBA restart. In his place, the Lakers are now moving towards signing long time LeBron cohort in JR Smith as his replacement, according to the reports.
As ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith puts forth in the above post from his Instagram page, likely a quote from him on television, JR Smith is probably an upgrade over Avery Bradley in all senses. Yes, we know that JR Smith hasn’t played in the NBA since November of 2018, but when he did it was last with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Basically, LeBron and the Lakers lost Bradley, but they upgraded. This isn’t something I think because SAS said it, JR Smith seems to offer more than Avery Bradley does on the basketball court.
That is something you can see with your own eyes if you watch the tape. In any situation, this was a small victory, but still a victory none the less for the man known as The King.
Former Miami Heat champion LeBron James is always winning, one way or another. This week though, it must have seemed extra special to the King!
Moving on further, LeBron James and longtime friend/business partner Maverick Carter have also taken their production company into Super Saiyan territory. They’ve secured $100 million in capital in the formation of the new, improved, and all-encompassing The SpringHill Company. Here is a quote from Bloomberg on the venture.
Carter calls the company a “house of brands.” It’s part Disney storytelling power, part Nike coolness, and part Patagonia social impact. In 2020 stories can be told in many different ways—on social media, in films, as well as with sneakers and sweatshirts. “This is ultimately a company that’s about point of view, the community you serve, and empowerment,” says L.A. investment banker Paul Wachter, who helped put the project together. “This is a company designed to move the culture.”
LeBron James is now not only the King on the court, but he is also the “chairman” of the board. That wasn’t nearly it for LeBron James this week though.
To top it all off, he just kept on winning, well sort of. Months away from potentially winning his own sport’s championship, as the NBA looks to restart soon, another of his teams won their league’s championships.
With LeBron James owning a minority stake in the new champion of Premier League football, Liverpool FC, he is a championship owner as well. Without a doubt, his excitement can probably be quantified with this statement… big dividend energy!
Dividends are what is paid out to investors, in case you didn’t know. With a championship in tow, those figures are sure to be just that much bigger. Regardless of that though, when you are as success-driven as LeBron is, this is mega!
So, while every day must feel like a stroll in the park if you are LeBron James, the days of this past week must have been extra special. From winning in the boardroom to winning on the soccer pitch, he’s just flat out been winning. That is why the former Miami Heat champion, LeBron James, must be having one hell of a week!
