Lebron James turned 37 years old on December 30 and the Lakers star does not seem to be diminishing his performance in the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers. The forward converted 43 points, 14 rebounds and four assists in the Lakers’ 139-106 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.
James who had a great New Year’s Eve game set another mark that to date only had been held by Chicago Bulls legend and six-time NBA champion, Michael Jordan.
King James closed his exhibition with 43 points (16 of 26 shooting), 14 rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and zero losses. LeBron becomes the only player alongside Jordan who has been able to exceed 40 points without losses over 35 years of age.
Lebron maintains a high performance in a season that has been difficult for the Los Angeles team due to the multiple casualties due to COVID-19 cases and the little understanding between the stars Anthony Davis, Rusell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James himself.
The Los Angeles Lakers have a record of 18 wins and 19 losses and are seventh in the Western Conference just one game above the standings. So even with more than half of the season to play, they will have to improve to advance to the Playoffs.
Lebron James continues to generate every game the debate about whether he is the best player in the history of the NBA and is above players like Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, among others. What is certain is that he still maintains a high level and continues to break records in the NBA.
