LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers had a very impressive season in 2022-23.
Ahead of the new season, the Lakers decided to celebrate the many things that James did last season.
They created a thread on Twitter that posted all of his great accomplishments, including earning the most 20-point games in history, making 8,000 career playoff points, and becoming the all-time scoring leader in the league.
Year 20 was a record-breaking year for the King.

But there is more: James also became the first Laker since Shaquille O’Neal to earn 20+ points and 20+ rebounds in a playoff game, among other honors.
In short, James was collecting a number of historic feats in 2022-23.
All of this would be impressive for any star, but it’s even more impressive because James is now 38 years old.
He is doing things that someone his age never has before.
What is he capable of in the new season?
He will add to his points total and probably break a few more records.
But will he be able to help lead his team back to the Finals?
The Lakers turned things around and reached the Western Conference Finals last season.
And then they got even better in the offseason, acquiring a few new players who could improve their roster even more.
Does this make them a shoo-in for postseason glory?
It all depends on a number of things.
The new players need to adjust expertly to playing with the strong core that has been built in LA.
And the Lakers have to avoid injuries, which is easier said than done for some people in the lineup.
If James can stay healthy and his team can perform, he might make history yet again.NEXT: LeBron James Reacts To Deion Sanders' Message About Doubters
