On Sunday, LeBron James celebrated his 34th birthday. On the day of his birthday, his team, the Los Angeles Lakers, celebrated a win over the Sacramento Kings. However, James had to watch his team from the sideline while he’s still recovering from his groin injury.
According to recent reports, James’ wife Savannah threw a birthday party for her husband. Thanks to co-creator of ‘The Shop’ and LeBron’s business associate Paul Rivera, we learned that Drake was one of the guests at the party.
Just shortly before his birthday, James shot the 7th episode of his eight-part ESPN+ series More Than An Athlete. During this episode, he opened up about his thoughts on being called the best basketball player ever. He said that his accomplishments have helped him earn that title. However, James did say that winning a title for the Cavaliers was the moment he knew he was the best in the game:
“That one right there made me the greatest player of all time. That’s what I felt. I was super, super ecstatic to win one for Cleveland because of the 52-year drought. … The first wave of emotion was when everyone saw me crying, like, that was all for 52 years of everything in sports that’s gone on in Cleveland. And then after I stopped, I was like — that one right there made you the greatest player of all time. Everybody was just talking — how [the Warriors] were the greatest team of all time like it was the greatest team ever assembled. And for us to come back, you know, the way we came back in that fashion, I was like, ‘You did, you did something special.’ That’s probably one of the only times in my career I felt like, oh, s—, like you did something special. I haven’t had, really had time, to really, like, sit back and think, but that … that was a moment.”
He deserves to be called the GOAT. We wish James the happiest of birthdays!
