NBA superstars in their 20th year usually play a minor role and are not as dominant as they once were. However, Los Angeles Lakers wing LeBron James is unlike any superstar. He proved it again tonight against the New York Knicks.
James led the Lakers to a 129 to 123 victory over the Knicks in overtime, recording a triple-double of 28 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. He was the most impactful player on the court, and although his 3-point shooting leaves much to be desired, he did everything else very well to help the Purple and Gold halt their two-game skid.
In the process, James became the first player in NBA history to record a triple double in his 20th year in the league.
Sure, there are not many players who have been able to play two decades in the league, but that does not take away from how incredible it is for LeBron to maintain his dominance over the years.
There is no doubt that what James is doing this far in his career is unheard of. Although he has his fair share of haters, no one can deny that he is one of the best players in history.
