Even at 37, James continues to break records and add stock to his side of the debate over whether the G.O.A.T is him or Michael Jordan.
Despite the struggles of the Lakers this season, James has seemingly been unaffected and continues to put up solid numbers, proving that he is still a force to be reckoned with in the NBA.
As players continue to rise throughout the league, LeBron has had has doubters, and some say that he may be past his prime.
But is he truly past his prime?
LeBron James had his first 50-point game when he was 20 years, 80 days old.
He had his last 50-piece when he was 37 years, 65 days old.

LeBron Is Still A Beast
As you can see, the tweet above says otherwise.
LeBron is still able to score 50 points per game, and while it may be a rare feat in today’s NBA, he still makes it look easy.
The idea that LeBron is past his prime is just false.
He may be pushing 40 years old, but he still remains one of the steadiest players in the NBA and continues to play as if he’s in his prime.
In other words, LeBron has not left his prime, and the truth is, his prime will last until the day he retires, and he appears to be nowhere close to calling it a career.
He could easily still win an MVP and is really the only reason why the Lakers haven’t completely collapsed this season.
He has carried that team and will continue to do so going forward.
