James has been in fine form all year, despite turning 37 years old.
He has been breaking records for his age and playing like a man ten years younger than he is.
Most recently, he has two 50-point games, a huge feat.
And he also became the first player in league history with 10,000 points, 10,000 assists and 10,000 rebounds.
He’s also hot on the heels of another big milestone.
I'd be legitimately shocked if LeBron doesn't make sure this happens in Cleveland. I'd be wary of buying a ticket to that Wizards game if I was hoping to see him play. https://t.co/jRdfStohOW

James is just 75 points away from surpassing Karl Malone for second place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.
As Michael Convo pointed out on Twitter, there is a good chance that James could grab that second-place spot in an upcoming game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In fact, James could in fact ease up his point output a little bit over the next few games to ensure he breaks history in his hometown.
What A Season, What A Shame
James passing by Malone will be just another example of his dominance this year.
Unfortunately, it comes at a time when his Lakers are continuing to struggle and suffer.
LA is fighting to stay alive in the West and there is serious doubt the team will even make the playoffs this year.
At this point, they’ll be lucky to even make the NBA Play-In Tournament.
When this season ends, the only highlight from it will be James’ incredible work and his ability to still perform so well all these years into his career.
Hopefully, he is able to enter next season just as strongly – and hopefully, the Lakers are able to get it together in the offseason.
