LeBron James: Something Is Really Wrong With Me
LeBron James behavior has been weird for the last few days. His cryptic tweets have hit the headlines already. He capped of his bizarre week with couple of more enigmatic tweets on Saturday and Sunday.Advertisement
In the tweets,”#SFG” means “strive for greatness,” which has been James’ mantra on social media for many years. Later, LeBron released a video on Instagram, in which he jokingly admitted “something is wrong with me” and added that he has gone crazy, as reports the Fox Sports.
Is it really a joke? What is actually wrong with LeBron James? Is he really eyeing to change his position permanently with the Cavaliers?
Though on-court, LeBron James is hitting milestones. On Saturday during the Cavs 120-103 win over the Boston Celtics, he achieved a couple of phenomenal feats. For a stretch of nine seasons starting from 2007, he has scored 10 or more points in 700 consecutive games, joining the elite Club of Michael Jordan(866) and Kareem Abdul Jabbar(787).
Then when he scored his 16th and 17th point en route to game-high 28 in the third quarter, he surpassed Tim Duncan for the 14th highest career scorer’s spot. Duncan has notched up 26,366 and was rested that night as San Antonio Spurs defeated Sacramento Kings, according to the ESPN.
“He’s the greatest power forward of all time,” small forward James hailed Duncan. “If not one of the greatest of all time, period. I got so many different stories and so many different things and situations that have been linked to him and we’ve been linked together. Even though he’s a few years older than me, we just stayed linked.”
And James, the best small forward in the league, is now toying with the idea of switching to Tim Duncan’s power forward position permanently for the remaining season, according to the Cleveland Plains Dealer. A change which he feels would lift the Cavs for the rest of the league and guide them to clinch the title. On Friday, Tyronn Lue played him in power forward position against the Washington Wizards as Kevin Love was rested. The combination worked well and team-player James is ready to leave his favorite position to get accustomed to the power forward’s role.
Whether he is wrong or right, one thing drives LeBron James, the NBA title.
