LeBron James wants people to remember that he’s a great team player and an awesome scorer.
Following Steph Curry winning the NBA’s 2020-21 scoring title, the four-time NBA champion and Los Angeles Lakers star posted a photo on Twitter reminding people he’s the only player in league history to average at least 25 points per game for 17 seasons.

“Since I was 19 years old! And I’m a pass first guy. Always been. That’s why I’m never mentioned with the greats of scoring huh?? That’s perfect cause I’d rather keep it that way,” LeBron wrote to his millions of followers.

For a guy who doesn’t want to be remembered among the best scorers in league history, tweeting out your stats to your 49.7 million followers seems like a strange way to do it.
The photo by itself isn’t actually the weird part. It’s the fact he felt the need to talk about how he’s such a team first kind of guy with his passing, but still a dominant scorer.

It comes off as insanely insecure. LeBron James is incredibly rich, has four NBA championships, owns part of the Boston Red Sox and lives the life.
Yet, he still feels the need to hype himself up right after someone else wins the scoring title. It’s just sad and pathetic.
Don’t tell me about your accomplishments, LeBron. Go out and win another ring. Attempting to humble brag on Twitter won’t accomplish anything, and it’s just sad.
