Megastar LeBron James wrote a touching message for the late Kobe Bryant. The tribute was uploaded by James on his Instagram account page, Thursday (15/10) or three days after delivering the Los Angeles Lakers to win the 2019/2020 NBA.

"Hopefully what I have created can make you proud, brother. Love and miss you, champion !! " wrote LeBron while displaying a photo with Mamba wearing a jersey with the jersey number 24.

The Lakers ended their wait for the championship after winning 4-2 on aggregate over the Miami Heat in the best-of-seven format NBA Finals. This success was fulfilled after the Lakers won 106-93 in the sixth game, Monday (12/10).

The other three Lakers wins were in the first game 106-98 (1/10), the second game with a score of 124-114 (3/10), and the fourth game, 102-96.

The Lakers' two defeats came in the third game, when they surrendered 104-115 on October 5 and the fifth game when they lost 108-111 on October 10.

The Lakers dedicate the victory to the late Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash, 26 January. James and Anthony Davis even tattooed their bodies with the image of Black Mamba and imagined Kobe playing together in their minds.

James's achievement for the Lakers also fulfilled his promise two years ago. When he decided to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Lakers, at that time he announced his goal was to return the Lakers to the top of Uncle Sam's country basketball. This desire was strengthened by the presence of Davis, who came to the Lakers through trading channels from the Pelicans, last year.

When Bryant died, James promised to continue the legacy of achievements Bryant had carved with the Lakers. James now has four championship rings, a symbol of the NBA rulers, in his career. This success was obtained by defending three different teams, namely the Heat, Cavaliers and the Lakers. Now, he is only one adrift of Bryant's five-time NBA championship record.

Today's athletes are arguably no longer like sports players but world celebrities, with high fame and income due to their achievements.

Many ordinary people often think that high income is only owned by soccer players. Because, this sport is the most famous in the world and profitable.

But in fact, this is not the case. There are still many world athletes from other sports circles, who are also able to reap high salaries, one of which is in basketball.

Just like football, basketball today, especially in the NBA, is very thick with the business world, because its popularity is so high that it makes many advertisements and investors enter.

As a result, the club benefited from obtaining financial coffers. In addition, players have also been sprayed by the payment of very high salaries.

In the NBA itself, the name LeBron James, who last season led the LA Lakers to victory, is not the player with the highest salary in the NBA.

James was paid US $ 37,436,858. James was sixth on last season's earnings list. In fact there are five players whose salaries are higher than LeBron James. Here's the list:

1. Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) - 40.2 million US dollars

Stephen Curry was able to beat LeBron James in three out of four meetings in the NBA Finals. This time Curry is back ahead of LeBron James in terms of income in the 2019/20 season.

Despite being plagued by injuries and playing only five games last season, Curry won $ 40.2 million. That is the highest salary for the 2020 NBA players.

2. Chris Paul (Oklahoma City Thunder) - US $ 38 million

Chris Paul earned a salary of more than 38 million US dollars in the 2019/20 NBA season. This is the basketball basketball player's first season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, after the 35-year-old previously played with the Houston Rockets.

Paul is predicted to get up to 85 million US dollars over the next two seasons. In match records, Paul scored an average of 17.6 points and 6.7 assists in the regular season.

3. Russell Westbrook (Houston Rockets) - 38 million US dollars

Like LeBron James, Russell Westbrook is also a versatile player. Westbrook scored three times the average of the most doubles over the entire season.

Best-NBA-Players

He also won the 2017 NBA MVP. In his first season with the Houston Rockets, the player averaged 27.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game, for a fee of over $ 38 million.

4. John Wall (Washington Wizards) - 37.5 million US dollars

In the 2016/17 season, John Wall served the final year of his contract with the Washington Wizards. He is able to score an average of 23.1 points and 10.7 assists per game.

Then, John Wall made a contract extension for four years worth more than 170 million US dollars. Since then, he has played only 73 games, and last season he did not play due to an Achilles injury.

But in fact, John Wall still has a bigger salary than LeBron James.

5. James Harden - 37.2 million US dollars

Just before the NBA was stopped last March, James Harden was the leader in points scoring with 34.4 points per game. In fact, he has the opportunity to become the top scorer in the league in three consecutive seasons.

Last season, Harden's salary was exactly the same as John Wall's, 37.2 million US dollars, or only a few hundred thousand different from LeBron James.

One day before the accident happened, LeBron made it past Kobe's record points in the NBA against the Philadelphia 76ers. LeBron is now the third most buried player in NBA history with 33,655 points, ahead of Kobe with 33,643 points.

LeBron is likely to talk about the success of the former Cleveland Cavaliers player past Kobe points record in the NBA. LeBron claimed that up to now, he had not been able to give up Kobe's departure.

LeBron James Made a New Tattoo

"I'm sitting here trying to write something, but every time I try to do it, I cry thinking about you, Gianna, and the friendship we have," writes LeBron.

"My sympathy is for Vanessa and the children. I promise to continue your legacy. You mean a lot to all of us, especially LakerNation, and it is my duty to carry the burden of this responsibility," continued LeBron.

LeBron then closed the message by writing, "Give me strength from heaven and take care of me. There are many things I want to say, but I can't do it right now. I haven't been able to accept it. Until we meet my brother."

To Remember Kobe Bryant, LeBron James Made a New Tattoo

LeBron could not help crying when he first heard of Kobe Bryant's death. Especially the day before the unfortunate event, he had just passed the Kobe Bryant record as the third largest collecting points in the NBA, 33,643 points. James is now under Kareem Abdul Jabbar (38,387) and Karl Malone (36,928) as the third-highest scorer in NBA history.

To commemorate his friend, last Wednesday (1/30/2020), LeBron and Davis made a tattoo on the leg. According to USAToday, the pursuit was carried out by Vanessa Aurelia, Wednesday (1/30/2020).

LeBron chose a picture of the Black Mamba snake with the number 24, which is identical to Kobe Bryant. While Davis, through Instagram, also shared video clips of the process of making the tattoo.

In honor of Kobe's departure, La Lakers has postponed the duel against the Clippers. The first LA Lakers game after Kobe's death will take place this Friday at the Portland Trail Blazers.

Cleveland forward Cavaliers LeBron James (23) shoots the ball against Chicago Bulls guard Justin Holiday (7) and forward Lauri Markkanen (24) in the first round at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, United States, Monday (4/12 / 2017).

The first quarter is only 5 seconds. The scoreboard shows 27 for the Cleveland Cavaliers and 25 points for the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James, the Cavaliers striker, tries to dribble the ball, blocked by Danny Green. But Green is not agile enough. After entering the two-point firing area, with a backward move made in a blink of an eye, LeBron immediately jumped high and threw the ball. Blessings! The ball entered smoothly.

The audience cheered. LeBron's colleague on the bench stands and gives applause. The camera highlights LeBron's dense face with the sideburns. There is no excessive joy. He doesn't even smile. He only hugged his teammate, Dwayne Wade.

"Amazing moment. With this shot, LeBron managed to record 30,000 points," the commentator said.

January 23, 2018, the name LeBron James was recorded in NBA gold ink. He became the seventh member in the list of players who managed to record 30,000 points. In the history of the NBA, only six players have managed to do it: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, and Dirk Nowitzki (still actively playing). Even more extraordinary, LeBron became the youngest player when entering the elite list, which is 33 years 24 days, beating Kobe Bryant's record (34 years 104 days).

That night, LeBron recorded 28 points. Cleveland lost to Spurs, 114-102. But the defeat could not erase his joy. "This is a special moment," LeBron said after the match. "I immediately thought again of my journey, from the boy who first held a basketball at the age of five years, and underwent a match with the rules at the age of 9 years, until this moment."

Background

LeBron's journey to 30,000 points is indeed long and full of tombs. LeBron was born in Ohio (December 30, 1984) and raised by a single mother named Gloria Marie James. At that time, she was only 16 years old when giving birth to LeBron. In the essay "America's Working Single Mothers: An Appreciation," LeBron said how her mother fought very hard so that they both could live adequately.

"We had to move residence, a dozen times in three years. It was scary. My mother worked wherever and whenever, trying to meet the needs of both of us. But from there, I was sure: I had a mother who would always cover me and give me a sense of security. He is my mother, my father, everything. He always puts me first. I know that whatever happens, nothing is more important to him than me. I lose many things, but never once did I feel ignored or unloved. "

LeBron's way of life changed when Gloria left him with the Frank Walker family, an American soccer coach, who later introduced him to basketball. At that time, LeBron was nine years old, and Gloria knew that her age children needed to feel stability. After a year living with the Walker family, LeBron returned to live with Gloria, who was able to start organizing life.

In his first year joining the St. High School basketball team Vincent-St. Mary, LeBron scored an average of 21 points and six rebounds per match. He became a megastar on the field. He even became the cover of the prestigious sports magazine, and was highlighted in many gambling sites, especially in sportsbook and poker bet site like agen poker, the most renowned poker channel in Indonesia!

In the 2003-2004 season, LeBron decided to enter the NBA. He became the number one choice in the 2003 class of Draft and officially joined the Cleveland Cavaliers on June 23, 2003.

Some channels recorded the moment LeBron set foot on the NBA field for the first time. On October 29, 2003, the Cavaliers visited the Sacramento Kings headquarters. Some match observers said he was nervous, of course. Thousands of pairs of eyes seemed to highlight it. But when he entered the field, he did not appear like a rookie or a new kid.

Wearing a red and golden uniform numbered 23, combined with a red headband and white shoes, LeBron entered the field with complete confidence . In the third minute, LeBron, who managed to escape from the escort of the enemy, slipped to the left side of the opponent's defense.

After getting the ball, he dribbled quickly toward the ring, then jump shot. Smooth. In the first quarter, he scored 12 points, two rebounds, two assists, and three swags. At the end of the match, he scored a total of 25 points: the record for the most number of debutant players in the NBA.

Yes, they turned out to be good and agile when playing basketball with their hands and throwing them into the ring. Not just playing, they even sometimes involved in exhibition games in the basketball stadium.

Courtois also occasionally watches NBA games. One of those he watched in person was the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers matches. During the visit, many felt that Courtois was better suited to playing basketball than soccer.

Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku's love for basketball was only discovered this summer. The Everton striker uploaded a photo of him who was in a duel with Paul Pogba.

The duel took place while both were on vacation after the 2016 European Cup. In the video, Lukaku and Pogba were involved in a fierce duel. Both of them competed shirtless in the hot sun.

Tim Howard

As a player born in the United States, it feels even strange if Tim Howard does not like basketball. In fact, the former Everton keeper did indeed pursue basketball before becoming a professional soccer player.

"I have played basketball for as long as I can remember. It is an easy sport, and you need to jump and ball. I still do it in my yard," said Howard, who now plays for Colorado Rapids as reported by the Daily Mail.

"I might have played basketball in college, but football took over my interest. My dream, when I was little, was to become Michael Jordan," Howard added.

NBA basketball superstar LeBron James severely criticized the NCAA on Wednesday, after the United States campus sports authority reminded the California governor to reject a bill that required athletes-students to be paid for their use the name, image, and likeness of the campus athlete.

The California state legislature has submitted the bill to California Governor Gavin Newsom to be signed into law. The NCAA has asked Newsom not to sign this bill because it is deemed unconstitutional and injured through a letter signed by NCAA President Mark Emmert and 21 members of the state's governing council.

"If this bill becomes law and 58 NCAA campuses in California are forced to allow unlimited name, image and likeness schemes between campus athletes and professionals because this bill gives unfair recruitment benefits to the campuses, it will make them ultimately unable to appearing in NCAA competitions, "the NCAA wrote in the letter.

James, who has expressed support for the bill, responded to the NCAA letter via Twitter. "Our thanks to this bill you can work with all people in creating national policies that are fair to athletes," the star wrote on his Twitter account.

The NCAA's rules about matches and amateur athletes are to forbid campus athletes from being paid for their performances and get compensation for their names, images or similarities, even though their performances make millions of dollars on several campuses.

The California Bill prohibits campuses from paying college athletes directly, but only allows students to receive compensation from other sources such as video game companies or memorabilia.

Legislators who support this bill see injustice against campus athletes from the rules applied by the NCAA. The California bill will ban the NCAA from issuing a campus competition ban if campus athletes receive compensation starting in January 2023.

"Forget the shoes and video game contracts, NCAA athletes cannot make money during the training of young athletes in the summer, cannot promote their social media, cannot be a sportswear motel, may not accept groceries or boarding or equipment rental assistance, "Said one of the legislators, Kevin Kiley, as quoted by AFP.
