Basketball star LeBron James has been a top performer in the NBA throughout his career and could be regarded as one of the best ever basketball players.

During his time at the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Meat, the 33-year-old has been named MVP four times and is a three-time NBA champion.

LeBron James is still proving himself with the LA Lakers, and Eden Hazard who’s having a good season has been likened to the basketball hero.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi was taking part in the quarter-final of the NBA2K19 Gaming Tournament and was asked which current Premier League player could be compared to LeBron James this season, and Iwobi pointed to Hazard.

He said: “I would say Hazard.

“He’s dominating and has had a very good season so far and he’s always a top performer.”

Just recently, former Chelsea star Joe Cole admitted that Hazard is the best player he has ever played with.

Asked to name the best player he shared a dressing room with, Cole told Sky Sports: “You look at all the English boys – Gerrard, Frank [Lampard], JT [John Terry], Rooney, Rio [Ferdinand].

“Also the foreign players like [Arjen] Robben and Hazard… I could go on forever. You realise you’re playing with geniuses.

“If my life depended on it I would pick Hazard [as the best]. He was 19 when I played with him in France and even then he was just so talented.

“He had everything. He’s just a great player. I think he’ll go on to win the Ballon d’Or, I really think he’s that good.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
