LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers is doing insane things this year in his 15th campaign in the NBA. The man has been on a mission, especially after the All-Star break, putting the team on his back with the absence of Kevin Love on his way to averaging a triple-double over the past two months at the age of 33.
Not many, if any, can say they’ve done what LeBron is doing right now, and not only is King James maintaining his high level of play that he’s played at for the past 10 or so years, he’s breaking records while doing it.
Proving just how long James has been at the top of his game, LeBron recently became the oldest player in NBA history to record 2000 points, 500 assists and 500 rebounds in a season, pretty nifty numbers for a 33-year-old. Not only that though, LeBron also owns the same record for the youngest player to accumulate those numbers in a single season, setting it 13 years ago. Insane.
The @cavs LeBron James is the oldest player in NBA history to produce at least 2,000 points, 500 rebounds, and 500 assists in a season. He's also the youngest player in NBA history to reach those marks, as he did so at age 20 back in 2004-05.

LeBron has made a habit of breaking almost every “youngest to…” record the NBA has to offer, and it may just be the time where James begins to dominate the “oldest to…” records as well.
