What LeBron James has been able to do over his 17-year career has been nothing short of extraordinary. A 16x All-Star, 16x All-NBA player, and 4x NBA MVP, his greatest achievement may be the longevity he has demonstrated for nearly two decades.
Somehow, at age 36, James is playing like he's a decade younger, like a guy with a chip on his shoulder.
In awe, even one of Bron's biggest on-court rivals (Steph Curry) can't help but appreciate the reality of what he's seeing.
We've never seen this before in NBA history -- such a long and continuous reign of dominance. From his inaugural season in 2003 to his current campaign in 2021, his amazing longevity has been on another level, and it's really a testament to his focus and dedication to his craft.
For the Lakers, it might also be enough to get them another ring.
Already, they have started off the season with the NBA's best record (11-3), and there's no telling how much better they will continue to get as they develop more chemistry. Really, though, it all depends on LeBron and how long he is able to keep up this superpower-like display on the basketball court.
At this point, there's no sense in thinking he'll slow down anytime soon.
