James was part of a generation of young players inspired by Jordan. He wears it on his chest with the No. 23 each night. But now that James is 15 seasons in with three championships and four MVP Awards, he has moved into the Jordan role.
The crop of young players entering the league now grew up watching James, playing his role in video games and pretending to be him on their driveways, just as James used to do with Jordan.
Do you folks think this is true? He's basing this article on comments from Lonzo Ball, Lauri Markkanen, and Nik Stauskas.
Yet he completely ignores that (to name a few) Durant, Westbrook, Paul George, Kyrie, Devin Booker, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, Dwayne Wade, and Wiggins all basically said that Kobe Bryant/Jordan were their role models
