Draymond Green On LeBron James' Longevity: "LeBron's Gonna Basically Own All Of The 'Youngest To Ever To' And All Of The 'Oldest To Ever To' Records In The Book. Just Think About That."

Draymond Green On LeBron James' Longevity: "LeBron's Gonna Basically Own All Of The 'Youngest To Ever To' And All Of The 'Oldest To Ever To' Records In The Book. Just Think About That."

LeBron James has been on fire over the last month. In the absence of Anthony Davis, and surrounded by floundering Lakers’ stars, James has carried the load for his team, playing some incredible basketball at the age of 37. It is truly incredible to see James continue to make history. And his former rival Draymond Green has a bold prediction for him.

Draymond Green recently addressed James’ record-breaking stretch of basketball. Green thinks that by the end of LeBron James’ incredible career, he will be able to hold most of the records in the NBA as the youngest and the oldest player to achieve those records in the NBA, imploring everyone to understand just how incredible that is.

"LeBron's gonna basically OWN all of the 'youngest to ever to' and all of the 'oldest to ever to' records in the book. Just think about that."

Much like Green suggested, LeBron is the youngest and the oldest player in NBA history to average 25+ points per game in a season

James has been playing some incredible basketball during this recent run, especially since he has been moved to the center position for the Los Angeles Lakers due to Anthony Davis’ injury and Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan’s inability to play well with big minutes.

James has been making a lot of history recently. He became the youngest player to ever reach 36,000 career points in the NBA, and only the third player to ever reach that milestone. James is clearly inching closer to becoming the all-time leading scorer in NBA history, attempting to surpass Lakers’ legend, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. 

On top of that, James also surpassed Oscar Robertson to take the 4th spot on the all-time free-throws made list. James, who has never been a historically excellent three-point shooter, was able to make his way to this list because of his longevity so far. And given the level at which James is playing, it would not be surprising for James to reach even higher on the NBA’s all-time lists.
