On the Join The Lobby podcast, Anthony Davis shared a surprising insight into LeBron’s gaming skills. In conversation with the hosts, when the topic of Madden NFL game came up on the podcast, Davis, a known gaming enthusiast, mentioned how he used to consistently beat LeBron in their early Madden matchups.

However, the competitive spirit in LeBron motivated him to improve his Madden NFL gameplay. Davis elaborated that LeBron took the challenge seriously and dedicated a lot of time to enhancing his Madden skills. 

According to AD, LeBron has become one of the top 1,000 Madden players globally. Especially from their time in the NBA bubble to the present, LeBron’s Madden skills have improved significantly. During the late season, LeBron even mentioned to AD that he had beaten the 164th-best player in the world and played around 15 to 20 games a day to sharpen his skills.


LeBron’s Madden NFL history

LeBron James’ dominance in EA Madden NFL games is well-documented. He has been posting pictures of his Madden victories on his social media for a long time. 

Once LeBron crushed rapper Doe Boy in a Madden NFL 24 game and the rapper was shocked. He acknowledged LeBron's superior Madden skills. 

The video posted by Doe Boy captured a moment where LeBron scored a touchdown, adding to the rapper's frustration.

In addition to his competitive spirit, LeBron has shown respect and sportsmanship to fans during his Madden NFL gaming sessions. In one notable instance, LeBron defeated a fan 67-0 in Madden NFL 24, and then he praised that fan for displaying resilience by not quitting the game. Though LeBron apologized for absolutely destroying his opponent: "My apologies."
