LeBron James was on another planet in 2011-12 season – Chris Bosh

Basketball   |   September 9, 2020



LeBron James has had an illustrious career of 17 years and he is still going strong. The superstar recently leapfrogged Ray Allen to become the second highest three pointer scorer in playoff history. The legendary player also recorded the most wins in playoff history as he tied the record with Derek Fisher.

James has received many accolades in his fine career as he has played at the top of his game. The King made a name for himself while playing for Miami Heat and he was able to grow as a player while playing for the Heat. The talisman played for Miami from 2010-2014 and won two championships and two Finals MVPs during his stint with Miami.

Meanwhile, his former teammate Chris Bosh feels LeBron James was on another planet in the 2011-12 season. It was the second season for James with Miami and he was the cynosure of all eyes.

In an interview with JJ Reddick, Chris Bosh said, “Yeah, I think he was on another planet. It got a point where we were just like, ‘I am a pretty good basketball player but I’m watching him do this thing and I don’t know what the hell is going on.’ “I don’t know where he is and he was shooting like 60% for weeks. He wasn’t missing and he made it easy for us.”

James had shared the stage with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh and he was part of the Big 3 of Miami Heat. Bosh feels that Heat’s game play suited James and it helped him lift his standards.

Bosh added that James’ workload increased when he moved to Cleveland as he was having the ball for more time in his hands. Chris stated that it is the same case again when he is playing for the LA Lakers.

Bosh added, “He was very motivated to be successful and I think us as a unit, the way we played the game, it allowed him to be successful. And then I think he was able to play off the ball a lot. “I think once he went to Cleveland, he had the ball in his hand more and was asked to do more. Which is still the case in LA and I don’t know how he keeps up with it.”

LeBron James is 35 years old and he has proved that age is just a number as he is coming up with impressive performances. He is always expected to deliver the goods for his team and he hardly disappoints his fans.

James will be in action in the third game of the conference semifinal against Houston Rockets on Wednesday.
