Happy birthday, King! Greetings pour in for LeBron James as he turns 34
NBA superstar LeBron James turned 34 just before the world ushers in the new year and there was no shortage of love for one of the world’s most popular athletes on his birthday.
Friends, former and current teammates, NBA greats and stars from other sports all extended their greetings for James, remembering his legacy in basketball and the friendship they have built.
James’ missed his first birthday game since joining the NBA, sitting out against the Sacramento with a groin injury on Sunday. But the Lakers gave him a 121-114 victory as a perfect gift.
James’ “banana boat” buddies Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade waxed a little sentimental as LeBron turned another year older, with the Rockets point guard even poking fun at his hairline.
Here are other well-wishes from his former teammates, NBA greats and one David Beckham.
Happy birthday King!🎂 @KingJames
