LeBron James, the kid from Akron, actively establishes himself as one of the NBA’s best players. His remarkable durability and skill in overcoming challenges have elevated him as a standout figure, expanding his fan following. Currently, he maintains an impressive season average of 25.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 6.3 assists.

While on the Club Shay Shay podcast hosted by NFL legend Shannon Sharpe, American rapper DaBaby, asked about his top 5 NBA players, and surprisingly showered praise on LeBron James. Despite being born in Cleveland, Ohio, and later moving to Charlotte, North Carolina, where Michael Jordan played, fans might have expected his top choice to be Jordan.


Despite a busy schedule, he actively watches the games of the Los Angeles Lakers star whom he ardently follows. In the interview, he says:

I don’t play about James. I’m going where he goes. If he goes and plays for Russia, I’m trying to learn the language!

LeBron James naturally secured the top spot, while expressing admiration for Steph Curry, Damian Lillard, and Draymond Green. To round out his list, he actively chose Giannis Antetokounmpo, who made history during the Mavs-Bucks game, notably excluding Michael Jordan.
