LeBron James is undoubtedly one of the greatest basketball players of all time. With a resume that includes four NBA championships, four MVP awards, and countless other accolades, James will certainly be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame when he retires. However, there has always been a misconception that players and coaches are not afraid to face him. Former NBA player Mario Chalmers recently claimed that no one is afraid to face LeBron as they were afraid to face Michael Jordan. But, NBA coaches have a different opinion, and a video circulating on Twitter shows their perspective on LeBron’s power.

NBA Coaches praise LeBron James

The video clip features renowned coaches Brad Stevens, Steve Kerr, Dwane Casey, Doc Rivers, Erik Spoelstra, and Gregg Popovich sharing their experiences of coaching against James. Each coach heaped praise on James, describing him as “unbelievable” and “difficult to guard.”

In particular, Steve Kerr revealed that when his team first played against Lakers Legend, they were “fearful of his power and his penetration and his passing,” but now they fear everything because he’s added so much skill to his game. Similarly, Doc Rivers recounted how he noticed a significant difference in the beasts’ approach to the game when he moved to Miami from Cleveland. In Miami, LeBron became a strategic mastermind, calling out plays and reading defenses, which made him even more challenging to guard.
