Maybe the title should be “King James quotes” instead of LeBron James quotes. But anyway, the man needs no introduction. Even in high schoolpeople who were watching him play were predicting that he’ll be an NBA star.
Back then, LeBron says that he saw himself as Penny Hardaway who could see the court and score. It’s unheard-offor a player who is 18 years old to make a deal with NIKE worth $90.000.000 (that’s ninety mil – yeah.)
Will he be as great as Mike? Well, I personally don’t think so. I mean, someone who does an amazing impression of Elvis Presley can’t never be better than ElvisPresley himself. LeBron is trying to be like Mike but I think he should’ve tried to be LeBron James.
Nonetheless, he has a great talent and tremendous will to play the game and is extremely hard-working and dedicative. Without further duo, let’s check out the LeBron James quotes..
“Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve been the best player. I love being a leader, and I love being the best. I just want to get better. It’s not about being cocky or selfish or anything like that. It’s just how I am.”
“This is a job and we want to have fun. But it’s a job and we should look like we’re going to work.”
“I think the reason why I’m the person who I am today is because I went through those tough times when I was younger.”
“In the next 15 or 20 years, I hope I’ll be the richest man in the world. That’s one of my goals. I want to be a billionaire. I want to get to a position where generation on generation don’t have to worry about nothing. I don’t want family members from my kids to my son’s kids to never have to worry. And I can’t do that now just playing basketball.”
“I thank God for the God-given talent He gave me. I worked hard to get to the point where I’m at.”
“Sometimes the coaches tell me to be selfish, but my game won’t let me be selfish.”
“I told myself if I ever made it to the level I want to be at, I’m gonna give back.”
“I don’t need too much. Glamour and all that stuff don’t excite me. I am just glad I have the game of basketball in my life.”
“There’s no reason to play in the NBA if you don’t believe you can win it all.”
“We don’t want to get frustrated because it sticks in your mind too much. We have to work at it and see what we did wrong.”
“Man, meeting Michael Jordan for me was like.. black Jesus walking towards me. It was overwhelming to me to finally meet the guy I’ve looked up to my whole life.”
“To all the positions, I just bring the determination to win. Me being an unselfish player, I think that can carry on to my teammates. When you have one of the best players on the court being unselfish, I think that transfers to the other players.”
“Ask me to play. I’ll play. Ask me to shoot. I’ll shoot. Ask me to pass. I’ll pass. Ask me to steal, block out, sacrifice, lead, dominate. Anything. But it’s not what you ask of me. It’s what I ask of myself.”
“There is a lot of pressure put on me, but I don’t put a lot of pressure on myself. I feel if I play my game, it will take care of itself.”
“It’s hard to win in the league, because every team is good, they got players on their team. A lot harder than high school. It’s competitive, and that’s what I most love about it.”
