Why Chase Slate Should Be the Next LeBron James
“I have to tell you, I’m really excited to see him back in Cleveland,” ESPN’s Mike Tirico said.
“He’s an incredible player, a true basketball genius.”
But, according to several sources familiar with the decision, there’s one big difference between the two.
Slate has yet to sign with an NBA team, and LeBron’s former teammate Chris Paul was a star in the league when he signed with the Houston Rockets last summer.
And in the last four seasons, LeBron has made a total of nine total NBA Finals appearances, including the Finals MVP.
So while Slate may be in line to become one of the best players in the game, he’s also one of only a handful of players to have won a championship in the NBA during the last five seasons.
Slate may have a bright future, but that’s not the case for LeBron James.
