LeBron James had a fantastic first-round series against the Indiana Pacers, as he led his Cleveland Cavaliers to a quick sweep. James put on a great show, averaging almost a triple-double over the course of four games, and he was very efficient. However, not everyone gave him the credit he deserves as some people even criticized his performance. Just hours after LeBron eliminated the Pacers, ESPN had a ridiculous article, discussing whether James is slowing down.

There is no doubt that this is one of the best seasons of LeBron James' career, and his first-round performances against the Pacers were simply incredible.

Throughout his entire career, James has been one of the most hated athletes, and it seems that the things will not change anytime soon.

ESPN's headline is disrespectful

LeBron James averaged 32.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 9.0 assists per game in the first round. He is the only player in NBA history to average these numbers in the playoffs while shooting over 50 percent from the field. Furthermore, James shot 45 percent from the long range, and he utilized his skills to the maximum, scoring from just about any spot on the floor. The four-time MVP was also impressive on the defensive end of the floor as he averaged 3.0 steals and 2.0 blocks per game.

ESPN's "Is LeBron slowing down" headline is nothing but disrespectful.

Instead of appreciating the greatness and this historic run LeBron James is having, ESPN decided to take a shot at him and focus on his weaknesses. This is absolutely unacceptable considering how fantastic James was, and the only weakness in his game was his free throw shooting. Everything else was simply astonishing, as James played on the all-time-great level.

LeBron James is NOT slowing down

Despite being 32, LeBron James is still in his prime and he is definitely not slowing down. Without him, the Cleveland Cavaliers have played poor basketball and lost every single game. He is a key player of the team, and undoubtedly the best player in the NBA. The small forward earned one of the biggest achievements of his career last year by beating the Golden State Warriors after being down 1-3 in the series, and he is currently on a mission to win his fourth championship ring.

Even in his 14th season, LeBron James is breaking multiple records and doing some things that have never been done before. There are literally no signs of him slowing down, and he has the fewest weaknesses out of every NBA player. James is only getting better, and if he wins the fourth championship ring, he will definitely get closer to Michael Jordan when it comes to the greatest player of all time discussion.
