Oscar-winning Hollywood actor makes a splash when he calls LeBron James the GOAT of the NBA rather than Michael Jordan

Sunday ended in a damaging loss for the Los Angeles Lakers to the top seeded Phoenix Suns. The Lakers are still struggling to gain momentum before the end of the season. They are still the 9th seed in the Western Conference while the Suns have already qualified for the playoffs. The gap between the two teams was imminent as Devin Booker’s side purely outclassed LeBron James and company.

He finished the game with 31 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Despite a disastrous performance by the Lakers, LeBron James still had something to celebrate. He broke another record to add to his legacy.

LeBron James makes history

LeBron has many records to his credit. He created his own legacy in 18 years of his career. Even at 37, he is still going strong and proving that age is just a number for him. After two 50-point games in one week, King James broke another record to become the only player to achieve the feat.

LeBron created history by becoming the first and therefore the only player to have 10,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 10,000 assists in his career. The comments were filled with appreciation for this historic achievement. Among many famous celebrities, Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx also expressed his admiration.

Jamie Foxx commented, “Congratulations king 👑 the best for doing it!”

This put NBA fans at odds as he put LeBron above everyone else. Fans made sure to over-comment, stating their opinion of Michael Jordan being the “GOAT.”

It’s a moment to celebrate for James, but it’s not so much from a Lakers perspective. They are still in turmoil and hope to make the most of what is left of this season. Their only chance to qualify for the playoffs will be the play-in tournament.
