LeBron’s and Tiger’s birthday wishes

By Eddie Alinea
PhilBoxing.com
06 Jan 2019



Did you know that NBA superstar and LeBron James and golfing great Tiger Woods were born on the same date?

Both were born December 30, which happened to be Sunday last week when James turned 34 and Woods 11 years older. Lebron came into being in 1984 in Akron. Ohio, while Tiger in 1975 in Cypress, California.

Both, obviously, celebrated this important date of their coming to earth, albeit separately.

Having won 14 major championships in his career, Tiger looks to be contented and couldn’t ask for more. Ditto for LeBron, who has so far romped off with four NBA MVP awards since turning pro in 2003 and three championships, among other.

So what would’ve the two of the most decorated athletes in the world wished for when they blew their birthday cakes on that very memorable day?

With his well-documented back problems seemingly healed, Woods could’ve been praying for an injury-free 2019. His health condition, sure, had steadily improved in 2018 but the now 44-year-old parbuster should, definitely, be worrying of taking anything for granted having endured years in the wilderness with his physical struggles.

Staying fit, therefore, must be top of Woods' wish list if only to satisfy his thirst for at least a 15th major this year.

Twice last year, Woods was in contention to end his long wait for a 15th major but failed to get over the line at The Open and the US PGA Championship.

Time is running out on him to surpass or at least tie Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 majors but, after a 2018 that delivered plenty of promise, he can afford to have hope of cutting the gap in 2019.

Woods last topped the world rankings in May 2014. Now ranked 13th, a return to the top of the ladder looks reachable anew but with the sprinkling of fresh, younger and more consistent golfers ahead of him, the road, too, appears tough.

If Woods stays healthy and starts collecting stringing performances together, it is not out of the question he could find himself at the top of the game once more.

For LeBron, well, a doable fourth MVP appears to still wet his appetite, especially since hasn’t won one since his last in 2013 when he still was wearing the Miami Heat jersey with bosom pal Dwyane Wade as partner.

Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and James Harden all having won the award since he last did.

If James can inspire a young Lakers team to one of the top seeds in the Western Conference, he will have an extremely good case to win his fourth MVP prize.

But like in his Miami days, he needs an equally superstar as running mate to achieve his goal.

Although they have an exciting young core comprised of the likes of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma, the Lakers lack the firepower to be true contenders in the West and James would surely love to find a superstar dancing mate.

Current Warrior Kevin Durant and Raptor Kawhi Leonard are both set for free agency in 2019, while Anthony Davis could be the target of a blockbuster trade.

LeBron cemented his legacy in Cleveland by leading them back from a 3-1 Finals deficit to the Warriors to win the 2016 NBA title, and would do the same in Los Angeles by bringing the Larry O'Brien trophy back to one of the league's most storied franchises.

While It seems unlikely that James will be able to achieve that feat in 2K9 season, but he has pulled off the seemingly impossible feat before so why not try again.
