LeBron James is in scintillating form. His stat line in year 19 is better than what prime Michael Jordan put up at age 28!
King James is a statistical marvel. The player has played an insane number of games and has kept up an unthinkable average.
He is 37 years old and is leading the league in scoring. In terms of putting up all-time numbers, we reckon there are very few players that can match him.
He also recently passed Karl Malone to sit atop the number two spot in the all-time scoring list. With the current form, it looks as if LeBron will reach Kareem’s record in just another season or so!
Despite him shining through his team is out of the playoff spots. In fact, they are out of the play-in tournament as of this moment of writing.
LeBron James is statistically better than a 28-year-old Michael Jordan

A closer look at the number reveals that James’ 19th season is better than when MJ was 28! Yes, a 37-year-old LeBron is putting up the same and slightly better figures than his Airness.
The Lakers may be struggling but the King certainly isn’t. If he does win the scoring title, it would be his second and he would also be the oldest player to win it. By some margin that too.
While this is not a direct comparison to Jordan, the numbers are incredible to look at. There are bigger questions that lie ahead for LeBron though.
Can the King lead the Lakers to the playoffs? Just 5 games are remaining. We will have to sit tight and wait for this one.
