LeBron James has had one of the most successful careers in NBA history. Currently in his 17th year in the NBA, with the LA Lakers, LeBron James still hasn't lost a step and is playing age-defying basketball. While it's usually hard to pick when LeBron was at his absolute best in his long career, his former teammate Chris Bosh seems to have an answer.
Miami Heat was LeBron James' peak as per Chris Bosh
LeBron James played for the Miami Heat from 2010-2014, and won two championships and two Finals MVPs during his stay in Miami. In a recent interview with JJ Redick, LeBron James' former teammate Chris Bosh has said LeBron James was at his peak during the 2011-12 season. Bosh said:
"That second year (with Miami), he was on another planet. I don't know what the hell was going on, I don't know where he is, I mean he wasn't missing. I will take his 5th best career and that will be the best of mine."
LeBron was a part of the 'Big 3' in South Beach along with stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Bosh further explained how LeBron became a better off-the-ball player during this time. He said:
"We could put him off the ball, have him working off of cuts. Make a play for him, get him in the post. He functioned in different spots in the court."
LeBron has been responsible for more of the ball-handling duties with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the LA Lakers. But Bosh shed light on how LeBron was being more versatile and doing a lot of other things in Miami.
Chris Bosh is himself an NBA legend. Being praised by him at such a high level goes to show how great LeBron James was during his time in Miami.
