A former NBA player, Gilbert Arenas, who was also known as Agent Zero, idolized LeBron James and the goals he sets every season.

One of the top Washington Wizards players in history, Arenas played for the Wizards from 2003 to 2020. Arenas spoke on the No Chill podcast about the presence of James in the league and emphasized that he is the only player who never chased statistics.

"I said, 'LeBron is probably the only player, the only superstar that never had that year,'" Arenas said.

"He never had that year where he says, 'Eh, frick everybody. I'm trying to get my stats.’ Because I said, 'If he ever did that, who's stopping him?' That man would average 40-something," explained Arenas.

"When LeBron stepped in, it was all about trying to win a championship,” Agent Zero continued.

"Every year, trying to win a championship, so he's been building the teams to try to win championships, so he's never actually had a selfish year where he says, 'I don’t need anybody. I want to show the world what I can do," Arenas concluded.

Last season the 4-time NBA MVP James, averaged 30.3 points per game, becoming the oldest player ever to average at least 30 points per game. The 4-time NBA champion also averaged 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game.
