The King still reigns over “The Land” 14 full seasons since entering the league. LeBron James has undeniably put the work in and, whether you like it or not, is going down in basketball history right next to Michael Jordan

James has been to the NBA Finals six consecutive seasons and counting. That streak spans two different teams and an evolving cast of supporting characters around him. Bron hasn’t won them all, but leading the Cleveland Cavaliers back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Golden State Warriors, the best regular season team in league history, took his legend to new heights.

Then there’s this: he’s still at the height of his powers. Some players score more points, others drop more dimes or grab more boards than ‘Bron does, but the eye test speaks volumes: on a nightly basis, LeBron James is still the best and most important player on the floor.
