Four-time NBA champion LeBron James is 36 years old, but age has nothing on him. He is in his 18th NBA season and on his way to win another championship. It seems like LeBron has found the fountain of youth.
The Los Angeles Lakers superstar took notice of one particular tweet. According to the Twitter user, LeBron is 26.
LeBron James to win more titles in the next few years
LeBron is definitely not 26. He would never keep his true age secret. Moreover, he is proud of his current success. Just a handful of players have found the strength to play elite basketball at that age. Athletes usually retire at 30 or something like that.
That’s not the case with LeBron. He is playing his best basketball. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel is impressed with his great work. His teammates are impressed with his great work. In one of his press conferences, young Kyle Kuzma talked about LeBron and the fact that he never gets tired.
This is absolutely true. LeBron doesn’t get tired. It’s all in the head. He has a few more titles to win, and everyone knows it. NBA veterans play limited minutes at this age. LeBron is leading his team to back-to-back championship wins. He is averaging 25.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.9 assists, and 1.1 steals per game with the Lakers this season. These numbers are pretty impressive. But, there’s much more than the stat line. LeBron makes his teammates better players.
The Lakers take the second seed in the Western Conference. They have a 21-6 record at this point of the regular season. It’s a great record, especially if you take into consideration that LA won the championship a few months ago. LeBron and his teammates played inside a bubble and away from their families.
The 16-time All-Star is playing with a talented group of players. Anthony Davis is by his side. Rob Pelinka signed Dennis Schroder, Montrezl Harrell, Marc Gasol, and Wesley Matthews in the offseason.
Players are getting ready for the Brooklyn Nets and their revamped roster.
