The reign of King James has been a long one.
For 14 years, LeBron James has displayed a level of dominance unrivaled by his NBA competitors. With three Championships and four MVP's, the Cleveland legend has already cemented himself as one of the greatest to ever do it.
But with each passing year, Bron grows older. Under normal crcumstances, for normal people, 15 years of pro-basketball would be enough to slow them down.
LeBron James, however, is proving to be something completely abnormal. After last night's insane 57 point performance, where he shot over 67%, LeBron revealed that he won't be backing down anytime soon.
“I had to do what I had to do to help us get off this losing streak,” James said. “I ain’t about losing. Y'all know me. Been knowing me for a long time in this league, I ain’t about losing. It ain’t about talking about it, it’s about making it happen and that’s what I had to do. I haven’t scored like that it in a while, but I’ll take it.”
The game also served as a milestone for James, where he became the youngest player to ever reach 29,000 points. The King himself noted that he didn't feel very "young," but also mentioned that this is the best he's ever felt:
“I might be the youngest, but I don’t feel young, even though this is the best I’ve felt in my career right now,” James admitted. “So I gotta keep it going.”
The fact that LeBron is still going strong at this age is impressive, but the fact that he could be at his physical peak right now is absolutely ridiculous.
The early season hasn't been kind to Cleveland, losing five of their last nine. So far, the Cavs are looking for any spark of life. Looks like they had that spark all along, and it sat in the hands of the world's greatest player.
