Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – E-Poll results indicate that Americans like LeBron James more than they ever did since his decision to leave for Miami in 2010.
The company takes the opinions of 1,100 people, ages 13 and up to represent different age brackets of the U.S. population.
Scoring ranges from 0-100, with 100 being being the most known, liked and appealing for the public.
James scored an 80, 13 points higher than his previous 67 a year ago.
The four-time MVP had an 84 which quickly went down to 47 after “The Decision” in 2010.
LeBron, of course, recently decided to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers and did so in a classy magazine article.
E-Poll’s president and CEO Gerry Philpott shared to ESPN that James is on a roller-coaster ride.
“I think the loss to the Spurs actually helped him, made him look more human, and then his coming back to Cleveland, and the way he did it, did even more to change how people viewed him,” Philpott added.
James’ highest score was 87 which he got in January 2010.
Philpott believes James can beat his highest score, maybe hit around 90s but will not reach Jordan.
“He probably won’t get to 100, like [Michael] Jordan did, but I think he can get into the 90s before he retires.”
