The Miami Heat have their own current things to deal with, however, when a former or one-time player makes the news, it’s always good to take a look back or in that direction. And, of course, the one-time Miami Heat guy that is making news at this particular moment is none other than the, at worst, the second greatest player of all time, LeBron James.
While his stature as the greatest player of all time may be debatable, no less than one or two, when considering His Airness Michael Jordan, there is a category where LeBron is undoubtedly Numero Uno, the head honcho, and the top dog.
Well-publicized by now, he recently passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to be the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.
And in celebration of the accolade, the king decided to treat himself to another crown, of sorts. In commemoration of his newly found status as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, he would have this nifty piece of jewelry created.
LeBron Jame’s Miami Heat tenure was the best version of him we ever saw. And he acknowledges that in his newest commemorative piece as the all-time scorer.
And as you can see, the all-timer that first found title success with the Miami Heat hasn’t forgotten just that. Center placed on the back of his new piece of hardware, there is the Miami Heat emblem, obviously, something that James still deems important to his career, legacy, and the achievement at hand.
While a lot of people like to ignore or conveniently forget LeBrons Miami Heat tenure when they can, it was not only one of the greatest eras of NBA basketball but also likely the best version of LeBron James we’ve ever seen.
And for a guy that’s continuing to do it at the level that he’s doing it at near the age of 40, that certainly says a lot.
And what also says a lot is the fact that along with his current team in the Lakers and his first, previous, and hometown team in the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that likely most helped him become who he is today in the Miami Heat also share that piece of history and real-estate on the piece that commemorates it all.
