LeBron has shown no signs of slowing down with his increasing age. While several great players have slowed down at age 35, Lebron is still the best player in the league.
The Lakers superstar has one of the best basketball IQ’s in the entire league. Although his athletic abilities have decreased, his playmaking skills have gone up a notch. The 3-time NBA champion has led the league in assists this season.
What’s next for LeBron and his Lakers?
With all-stars Anthony Davis and Lebron James leading the way, the Lakers have played some exquisite basketball. The team chemistry has been through the roof as well. The Lakers sit atop the western conference and remain firm favorites to win the championship.
Lebron has averaged 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists this season. With a great team and an extended break to recharge himself, the King certainly has a great chance to add a 4th title to his kitty.
The Lakers’ superstar recently landed himself in trouble though when he compared the NBA bubble to a prison term.
