On Tuesday, the NBA superstar posted a video on his Instagram profile of him preparing for the upcoming season that is sure to ignite Lakers fans, especially as James calls it “the year of his prime”.

After playing in the league for over 20 years, it is reasonable to think that LeBron James is slowing down a bit, but the fact that he is still among the best players in the NBA is undeniably impressive.
James has said before that he wants to be around long enough to play at the same time as his oldest son, Bronny James, so if that is the case, he should stay in the NBA for at least a couple of years. However, there is no doubt that NBA fans should enjoy the little time left to watch one of the all-time greats.
In year 20, James continued to record absurd numbers that players chase throughout their careers. He averaged 28.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, 6.8 assists and shot 50 percent from the field. And he shows little sign of letting up.
