Los Angeles is not only the city of stars, but it’s also the city of champions.
The Los Angeles Rams hammered that statement further when they won Super Bowl LVI over the Cincinnati Bengals.
It was the franchise’s first title after going back to California.
They won their first Super Bowl in 1999 when they were still based in St. Louis.
Now that Rams are the defending kings of the NFL, the greats in other sports are starting to recognize their achievements.
LeBron James on Aaron Donald being courtside: "He's the greatest defensive player I've ever seen play the sport."
— Ryan Ward (@RyanWardLA) February 17, 2022
Raiders News Wire and Lakers Nation reporter Ryan Ward shared a tweet about LeBron James’ admiration of defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
The Los Angeles Lakers star said that, “He’s (Donald) the greatest defensive player I’ve ever seen play the sport.”
Those who want a quick debate about what James said must hold their horses because he’s sharing his personal opinion.
James said that he’s the best he’s ever seen, not the best ever, which would be a contentious statement.
However, winning Super Bowl LVI can finally put Donald in the conversation regarding the Greatest of All Time on making life miserable for opposing quarterbacks.
Donald Is A Beast On The Field
Even without the individual accolades, it’s easy to point out Donald’s greatness.
The fact that he attracts two offensive linemen on most snaps is a testament to his strength and will to compete.
He’s like a gaming cheat code because he can disrupt the game if the other team doesn’t pay much attention to him.
Donald can simply slip through the player marking him and dash to the quarterback.
His efforts won him three Defensive Player of the Year awards, seven First-Team All-Pro selections, and eight Pro Bowl inclusions.
More importantly, he’s already a champion, just like James who won the championship with the Lakers during the NBA bubble.
