Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) April 28, 2009 -- If LeBron James has inherited the superstar mantle of Michael Jordan, what kind of Rolex luxury watch should King James wear to symbolize his triumph? Without question, the King, representing the very best in quality and performance, should wear a Rolex watch. Should the King be flashy and wear a Rolex Masterpiece like Jay-Z or should the Kingâs watch reflect his dedication to excellence like the Rolex Day Date Super President? Even before a Rolex watch is chosen for the new king, there lingers the question of whether he deserves the heir apparent title.
After all, Lebron James more championships than he has fingers on a single hand. He has won multiple MVP awards in both the regular season and playoff finals. We, at Melrose Jewelers, think Lebron Jamesis the greatest player the NBA has ever seen. He is the new Michael Jordan. Fast-forward 20 years from 1986 . Lebron Jamesenters the NBA at the young age of 18. He came into the NBA with the most hype one single player has ever had when making the jump from high school hoops to the pro game. He became the youngest rookie of the year winner ever. Another 4 years later, this kid, now 23, is considered the next greatest player the NBA has ever seen. He is LeBron James, the King.
Here are some comparative stats and notes between the two superstars: Michael Jordan won a record six NBA Finals MVP awards, and he averaged a record 41 points for a series in the 1993 NBA finals. Michael Jordan did not reach the NBA finals until his 6th season when he won his first title. LeBron James took the Cavaliers to the finals in his 4th season where they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James, Michael Jordan, and Oscar Robinson were the only three rookies in NBA history to average 20-5-5 in their first NBA season. LeBron James and Michael Jordan are two of only four players to average at least 30 points, seven assists, and seven rebounds for a season. LeBron James is the youngest player to score 50 points in a NBA game, to win the rookie of the year award, to record a triple double, to average 30 points for a season. Michael Jordan took his Chicago Bulls to the next level, improving the players around him and winning six titles. Over this past season, LeBron James transformed a team of no-names into the best team in the NBA with a regular season record in better than either the 2008 World Champion Boston Celtics or the Kobe Bryant-led Los Angeles Lakers. In other words, LeBron James appears to be the heir apparent to the King (sorry Kobe), but he has a long long way to go before he equals the achievements of His Airness.
King James needs a Rolex watch, but what kind of Rolex should the heir apparent choose to wear? In a recent shot of Michael Jordan at an NBA game, His Airness wore a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. Rather than go for the super bling of a Jay-Z Rolex Masterpiece, King James, as heir apparent, should follow the path taken by His Airness and wear an item a bit more subdued. After the kid wins a few championships and MVP trophies, King James can switch to the super bling if he wishes to go in that direction. Right now, as heir apparent with a steep mountain left to climb, LeBron James should choose the Rolex Day Date Super President as a symbol of true performance and his dedication to the pursuit of basketball excellence. Finally, by choosing a Rolex Day Date Super President, King James would be paying tribute to the incredible legacy of the greatest player in the history of the NBA, Michael Jordan.
