Before he turns 38 siguro baka siya na ang all time leading scorer in NBA History. LeBron is a physical specimen baka maging effective player din siya sa NBA in his 40's kagaya ni Asi Taulava ng PBA who was a Mythical 5 member at age 43 and 44.

LeBron James scored a season-high 51 points, hitting 19-of-31 from the field, when the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat, 113-97, at the American Airlines Arena, the biggest points ever scored by a Lakers player against the Heat. 

James started scoring immediately with 19 points in the first quarter. It was his 12th 50-point game of his career. James so far became the first Lakers player to score 40 or more points more than once since Kobe Bryant retired in 2016. He also went into the record books as the fifth player in NBA history to score a 50-point game for three different teams.

Lloyd: As Cavs prepare for LeBron James’ return game, JR Smith says team is tanking and reiterates he wants out
(EDITOR’S NOTE: The Cavaliers and JR Smith have separated following the publication of this article. Smith will remain away from the team while the Cavs attempt to trade him.)

DETROIT — When the Lakers’ charter jet touches down Tuesday afternoon at Hopkins, LeBron James will briefly step back into his old life again for only a moment. James has moved on and is presumably happy with his new life in Los Angeles. Those left behind are still sorting through the rubble and emotions that always seem to accompany his exits.

Larry Nance Jr. remains thrilled with how everything has worked out. He bought a house in his hometown even before signing a lucrative extension over the summer and has lunch with his parents multiple times a week. Just a kid from Akron who is happy to be home.

George Hill remains grateful for the opportunity to play in the Finals for the first time in his career while acknowledging his future here is uncertain and could be ending by...

Lebron just declared himself as the GOAT!!! :shock:

_________

" That one right there made me the greatest player of all time. That’s what I felt. I was super, super ecstatic to win one for Cleveland because of the 52-year drought. Like, I was ecstatic. That day, the first wave of emotion was, everyone saw me crying, that was all for 52 years of everything sports that have gone on in Cleveland. And after I stopped, I was like ‘That one right there made you the greatest player of all time.’ Everybody was talking about how they were the greatest team of all time. Like, they were the greatest team ever assembled, and for us to come back, the way we came back in that fashion, I was like ‘You did something special.’ That was, like, one of the only times in my career I felt like ‘Oh s—, you did something special.’ I haven’t really had time to really sit back and think, but that, that was a moment."

So, clearly, James has identified his win over the 73-9 Warriors in the 2016 NBA finals as the moment that will define his legacy, and obviously for good reason. Averaging 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists per game while leading a shocking comeback over the most successful regular season team of all time to end a half-century title drought for the most beleaguered sports city in the country will do that.

James doesn’t mention Jordan at all while using his lone Finals win over the Warriors in four tries with the Cavaliers as the moment that elevated him to GOAT-status, but that’s clearly the subtext.

We probably don’t need to fully rehash Jordan vs. LeBron debate here. One side is going to say count the rings, respect the dominance of the 90s Chicago Bulls and politely note the contributions of Dwyane Wade and Kyrie Irving, among others, to certain titles. The other side will say contributions across the box score should outweigh sheer scoring, eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances is very impressive and that today’s game is harder to dominate in. Both sides have their supporters, and plenty of them are probably sick of talking about it.

James’ comment is just the latest volley in the debate, and probably not the last as he expands his growing media footprint.

The King reigns: LeBron James is AP's male athlete of decade
TIM REYNOLDS (AP Basketball Writer)
The Associated PressDec 30, 2019, 2:19 AM



He left Cleveland for Miami, finally became a champion, went back to his beloved northeast Ohio, delivered on another title promise, then left for the Los Angeles Lakers and the next challenge. He played in eight straight finals. No NBA player won more games or more MVP awards over the last 10 years than he did. He started a school. He married his high school sweetheart.

''That's all?'' LeBron James asked, feigning disbelief.

No, that's not all. Those were just some highlights of the last 10 years. There were many more, as the man called ''King'' spent the last decade reigning over all others - with no signs of slowing down.

James is The Associated Press male athlete of the decade, adding his name to a list that includes Tiger Woods, Wayne Gretzky and Arnold Palmer. He was a runaway winner in a vote of AP member sports editors and AP beat writers, easily outpacing runner-up Tom Brady of the New England Patriots.

''You add another 10 years of learning and adversity, pitfalls, good, great, bad, and any smart person who wants to grow will learn from all those experiences,'' James, who turns 35 Monday, told the AP. ''A decade ago, I just turned 25. I'm about to be 35 and I'm just in a better (place) in my life and have a better understanding of what I want to get out of life.''

Usain Bolt of Jamaica was third for dominating the sprints at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, soccer superstar Lionel Messi was fourth and Michael Phelps - the U.S. swimmer who retired as history's most decorated Olympian with 28 medals, 23 gold - was fifth.

James was revealed as the winner Sunday, one day after Serena Williams was announced as the AP's female athlete of the decade. In his 17th season, he's on pace to lead the league in assists for the first time while remaining among the NBA's scoring leaders.

''When LeBron James is involved,'' Denver coach Michael Malone said, ''I'm never surprised.''

Including playoffs, no one in the NBA scored more points than James in the last 10 years. He started the decade 124th on the league's all-time scoring list. He's now about to pass Kobe Bryant for No. 3. No. 2 Karl Malone and No. 1 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are within reach.

Is Abdul-Jabbar in his sights? Is catching him the new decade's goal?

''I would be lying if I said I don't see it,'' James said. ''Obviously I'm not trying to say, 'OK, well if I play this amount of time, if I average this' ... I'm not doing that because I've never done that with my career. I've always just kind of let it happen. Whatever happens, happens. But I see it. I do see it.''

His work ethic, even now, makes even those closest to him marvel.

Here's a typical day this past summer for James, who remains obsessed with working even though fame and fortune found him long ago: He'd wake up at 3 a.m. and be at the Warner Bros. lot by 3:45 - where a weight room and court, built just for him, were waiting. He'd be lifting by 4 a.m., getting shots up by 5:30 and be ready to start another day of shooting the remake of ''Space Jam'' that he has been planning for years by 7 a.m.

''That's who he is,'' said Mike Mancias, one of the longest-tenured and most trusted members of James' inner circle, tasked for more than 15 years with keeping James fit. ''He does whatever it takes when it comes to fulfilling his commitments to everything - especially his game and his craft.''

The 2010s for James started with ''The Decision,'' the widely criticized televised announcement of his choice to leave Cleveland for Miami. (Lost in the hubbub: The show raised more than $2.5 million for charity.) He was with the Heat for four years, went to the NBA Finals all four times with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, finally won the title in 2012 - ''it's about damn time,'' he said at the trophy celebration - and led the way in a Game 7 win over San Antonio to go back-to-back the following year.

''He grew immensely here as a leader,'' Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. ''He impacted winning as much as with his leadership as he did with his talent. I think that was the most important thing he learned with us. And he's been able to take that to different franchises and continue using that as a template.''

Cleveland was devastated when he left. It forgave him. James returned home in 2014, took Cleveland to four consecutive finals, then led the Cavaliers to the 2016 title and came up with one of the biggest plays of his life by pulling off a chase-down block of Golden State's Andre Iguodala in the final seconds of Game 7 of that series.

And in 2018, he was off to LA.

Going Hollywood made so much sense - he's making movies, has a production company, has a program called ''The Shop'' as part of his 'Uninterrupted' platform featuring an array of guests from Drake to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who signed a bill on the show that will allow college athletes to get paid for the use of their likeness and sign endorsement deals.

''There's a lot of moments from this decade that would be up there, winning the two Miami championships, winning a championship in Cleveland, the chase-down block,'' James said. ''But the best moment? Definitely marrying Savannah. That would be No. 1.''

James and longtime partner Savannah Brinson got married six years ago. They already had two sons - both are very good basketball players already - and added a daughter in 2014.

James also spent most of the last decade as a lightning rod for critics.

He used his voice often on social matters, speaking out after the killing of unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin and campaigning for Hillary Clinton. He supported Colin Kaepernick's methods of protesting police brutality and racial injustice. Most recently, he was criticized by many - including top U.S. lawmakers - for his remarks after Houston general manager Daryl Morey sparked a massive rift between the NBA and China by sending out a tweet supporting pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

''I don't live in regret,'' James said. ''There's no moment in this last decade that I wish I could have back. If a situation was bad or you feel like you could have done better, then I learned from it.''

He doesn't know how much longer he'll play. He laments missing time with his children. His ''I Promise'' school that opened in 2018 in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, has been an immediate success story, and he wants to see that enterprise continue growing.

Some love him. Some don't. He doesn't mind.

''When you believe in your calling or you believe in yourself, then it doesn't matter what other people say or how other people feel,'' James said. ''And if you allow that to stop you or deter you from your mission, then you don't get anywhere.''

And in the 2010s, nothing deterred James.

LeBron James says he can see himself passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to lead the NBA in all-time scoring
And if LeBron James can age as gracefully as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did, he may just be the second Lakers star to take the all-time scoring lead.

By Christian Rivas on December 30, 2019 3:02 pm


Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images
On the eve of his 35th birthday, LeBron James became just the ninth player in NBA history to record 9,000 assists, joining Isiah Thomas, Chris Paul, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, Mark Jackson, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and John Stockton. You may notice that James is the only small forward in that group.

James also became the first player in NBA history to reach 30,000 points, 9,000 rebounds and 9,000 assists on Sunday. While the all-time record for assists and rebounds may be out of reach for James, the all-time scoring record isn’t.

With 33,347 career points, James will likely pass Kobe Bryant for third on the all-time scoring list by the end of this season. After that, he’ll try to catch Karl Malone (36,298) and then finally Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) — something no one has come close to doing. James’ situation is a little different, though.

To date, no one has scored more points before their 35th birthday than James — not even Cap himself, which puts into perspective just how dominant he was late in his career. It’s not going to be easy, but James has as good of a shot as anyone ever has to break the all-time scoring record, and he knows it.


In a recent interview with Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, James said he has thought about the prospect of breaking Abdul-Jabbar’s record, however, it doesn’t sound like he has it down to a science, or has set it as a specific goal:

“I would be lying if I said I don’t see it,” James said. “Obviously I’m not trying to say, ‘OK, well if I play this amount of time, if I average this’ ... I’m not doing that because I’ve never done that with my career. I’ve always just kind of let it happen. Whatever happens, happens. But I see it. I do see it.”
This might be why James is so against sitting games when he’s healthy. Each game James plays is an opportunity to catch Kareem, and as long as he’s playing at or near the level he’s played at for the majority of his career, he’ll be some team’s No. 1 option on offense.

By the same token, though, taking some time to rest theoretically gives James a better shot at playing to the age of 41 like Abdul-Jabbar did. Ultimately, though, no one knows James’ body better than James, and if he believes he still has plenty of tread on his tires, then no one should stop him from trying to make history.


Let’s just hope that, somewhere along the way, part of his legacy is bringing the Lakers a championship, like Abdul-Jabbar did five times during his time in Los Angeles.
