LeBron James takes to Twitter to respond to a fan hilariously claiming that the Lakers superstar is actually 26 and not 36.
The Los Angeles Lakers have been on a roll to start the season as they currently boast the 2nd best record in the league at 21-6. They are currently on a seven-game win streak and look to surpass the current number one team in the league, the Utah Jazz, as they are merely a loss behind them.
The Lakers’ success can be attributed to LeBron James having an MVP caliber season as he leads the team in points and assists. Even at age 36, James is the best player not only on his team, but perhaps, in the league. He is also at the top of the MVP leaderboard following the end of last week.
LeBron James’s continued greatness on the court made a fan on Twitter ponder over whether or not the Lakers star is actually who he says he is.
NBA fan on Twitter jokingly says that LeBron James is 26, not 36.
Following the 4x champ’s performance against the Grizzlies, a Twitter felt compelled to take to the social media site to voice his theory on why James is still as great as he is, in year 18 of his NBA career.
The fan hypothesizes that LeBron isn’t actually 36 and is in fact ten years younger, at 26. He also hilariously suggests that the Finals MVP entered the league at age 8, not 18. James was more than amused by this tweet and responded to it with a couple of emojis.

James definitely turned back time last night as he had one of his patented tomahawk dunks against the Grizzlies late in the game.

There is little doubt that the Lakers will secure a top-2 seed in the West. With any kind of luck, they’ll be topping the Conference once again.
