WATCH: 34 memorable plays for LeBron’s 34th birthday
Today is LeBron’s birthday, so it’s a cause for celebration. LeBron probably wasn’t expecting to celebrate his birthday on the bench, but that’s where he’ll be as the Lakers take on the Sacramento Kings.
LeBron’s awed NBA fans since his very first game, also against the Kings, and continues to do so in his 16th season in the league. ESPN put together 34 of the most memorable moments from his career to celebrate his 34th birthday. James’ best play from this season – arriving to Staples Center with wine in-hand – was noticeably absent from the clip.
Several of his iconic moments with best friend and former teammate Dwyane Wade made the list. The highlight reel of spectacular plays serves as a reminder of just how great James has been throughout the course of his career, and it is something we should not take for granted. He’s given us countless memories for nearly two decades, but, with James currently sidelined due to a groin strain, we’ve been reminded it has to come to an end eventually.
