He’s been on a roll throughout the whole season, taking his game to a whole different level since Anthony Davis went down with an injury.
The Lakers have literally needed him to score over 35 points per game to have a chance to win.
Fortunately for them, The King continues to defy Father Time on a nightly basis, proving that age is just a number for one of the most athletic freaks of nature this game has ever seen.
That was once again on full display when he made a fool out of the Charlotte Hornets’ defense with an epic reverse dunk, just like the ones he did when he was an 18-year-old entering the league.

Recently, James opened up about his preparation and how he continues to dominate in year 20:
“At 18 and 20, you’re just doing it off straight-up energy and straight skill,” James said in a press conference. “You’re just like, ‘I’m gonna just go out here and just play free and just jump all over the place. I know I’m more athletic than everybody, I know I’m faster than everybody and whatever happens, just let’s go out there and play free.’ Well, at 38, for me, it’s mental, the mental side. How much rest I can get from day to day, get my optimal sleep, make sure I get the right food in me, treat my body, get my body right, and things of that nature.”
It’s a shame to see a Hall of Famer play his final days in a non-contending team, but at least he’s never stopped putting on a show.
