Cleveland Cavaliers spotted him in the 2003 NBA draft, when he was still a high school student. And he won MVP twice during the next 7 years.
What I admire about him is that he’s got great leadership and organizational skills.
I remember in 2007, he was playing for Cleveland Cavaliers, in which there was no All-Star Player except himself. And his teammates were no better than those benchwarmers in NBA teams. However, under his leadership, they managed to beat all the strong teams in the East, like Boston, and compete with Spurs in the final game, he didn’t win the championship, though.
And in 2010, he moved to Miami Heat with another two All-Star Players in his team, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. And in the next 4 years, they went through to the final every year and won 2 championships.
In 2014, he moved back to Cleveland, his hometown, and last year, he helped his hometown win a first championship in the past 100 years.
What influenced me most is his spirit. Although he’s the most powerful player in NBA, he’s a giver. He would make necessary sacrifices for the benefit of the team. I think that’s what makes him a great player and leader.
