Monday’s dunk raises a lot of questions like: is there really anyone else like James, especially at his age?
It also raises another question: how much longer can he play at this level?
He is playing at superstar levels despite being 37 years old.
You can hate on him and his struggling Lakers as much as you want but you can’t deny that the guy is doing wonderful work for someone his age.
Some fans are saying that he should be investigated – not for being on performance-enhancing drugs but for being an extra-terrestrial.
Sometimes i see Lebron dunk barely over the rim and I believe he’s 37. Then this happens and I wonder how he’s not being investigated for being an alien https://t.co/kTDHQ1rR0R

Other people – even those who have seen every dunk in James’ career- think this could be his best one yet.
That might’ve been LeBron’s best dunk of his career

Others have remarked that James is truly earning the title of King.
Woke up thinking about LeBron throwing down this dunk at age 37 in his 19th NBA season tbh 🔥🏀
They call him the king for a reason 👑 pic.twitter.com/zqZKqpSj4H

Meanwhile, others were talking about the fact that he’s not slowing down at his age and there is a strong possibility that he’s still got quite a few years left in him.
Can you imagine James doing this sort of stuff when he’s almost 40?
People talk about Lebron’s longevity a lot, but it’s somehow not enough. It’s really insane that he can still do that. Like that would still be a dunk on an 11 foot rim. He’s gonna play for at least another 5 years and he’s already 37 https://t.co/8kAVmybbs8

All in all, the reactions to James’ dunk were incredibly positive as they should be.
Yes, the Lakers are having a horrible season but their lead player is showing just how much a once-in-a-lifetime player he is.
