Next season, Lakers superstar LeBron James will turn 36 years old. However, he is yet to show any major signs of decline. This year, he and Anthony Davis led LA to an NBA Championship.
Fans will expect more of the same from LBJ until the end of his career. But what makes LeBron such a great player, even in his mid-thirties? Former Lakers player Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk pointed that out in a recent episode of the “Fubo Sports” podcast.
“Last year being as a Laker, being a part of a team with LeBron, and it’s just how amazing it is to be a part of witnessing how good he is. Watching him before I got to college, just witnessing his greatness and how good he is and how much more he still got at his age. He is still producing at a really high level and man is a machine.
“… He’s the guy who learned every day, he’s trying to educate his teammates as well, but he learned a lot about other teams. During the season, I never see him not trying to learn. But he is still trying to figure out the ways to win. He watched every film every day.”
Even after being in the league for 17 years, James’ hunger to get better has not diminished. This ability keeps him at the top of the competition, even at this age.
Can LeBron James pull another rabbit out of his hat?
The 2020-21 season will begin soon, according to the latest reports. The Lakers will enter the season with a goal to repeat the same success. LeBron and Anthony Davis have already proven their worth as a dynamic duo in the league.
But winning a few more titles will solidify their respective legacies. For the Lakers to succeed, LeBron James’ performance will play a key role. Not only does he share the scoring load with AD, James is the primary facilitator for the team’s offense.
Most of the times, he brings up the ball and guides the team. This is something the Lakers would expect more of him next season as well. But what do you think? Will LBJ win another ring in his career?
