Call him a flopper or a ball hog or just about any other name you can throw his way but don’t ever say he hasn’t done an awful lot during his 19 seasons in the league.

For example, on the list of the most All-NBA selections by an active player, James has an astonishing 18.
Second place on that list is Chris Paul, with 11.
That means that no one comes close to James and it’ll be some time before anyone ever outdoes him.
The James Dynasty
Even at nearly 20 years of playing professional ball, James is still one of the best guys in the business.
That was definitely obvious last season as he fought hard to keep his Lakers alive despite all their troubles.
In the end, James’ herculean effort wasn’t enough, proving that LA needs more than just him to make it into the playoffs.
We don’t know how next season will go for multiple reasons: we don’t know if Russell Westbrook will remain on the Lakers’ roster and we don’t know if the team will end up landing Kyrie Irving like they want.
We also don’t know what shape Anthony Davis will be in.
But we do know that no matter what happens, James is going to pour himself into the entire season as he always does.
At 37 years old, James won’t have many more chances to gain All-NBA selections but there is no sign of him slowing down.
