LeBron on Being Motivated By Chasing The ‘Ghost’ of Michael Jordan


The NBA, the Golden State Warriors and immortality should be very afraid — because LeBron James is not done chasing ghost or championship.

In a beautifully written piece by Lee Jenkins of Sports Illustrated — James broke down what still motivates him to the campers at his LeBron James Skills Academy.

“My motivation is this ghost I’m chasing. The ghost played in Chicago.”

Later James clarified to Lee Jenkins exactly what he meant:

“My career is totally different than Michael Jordan’s. What I’ve gone through is totally different than what he went through. What he did was unbelievable, and I watched it unfold. I looked up to him so much. I think it’s cool to put myself in position to be one of those great players, but if I can ever put myself in position to be the greatest player, that would be something extraordinary.”
