According to Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue, LBJ underwent tests in the offseason that revealed that he has the body of a teenager.

“He had a chance to get tested this summer and they said he had a body of a 19-year-old,” said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, when asked about the aerial exploits. “Maybe he’s getting younger: Benjamin Button. I don’t know. Who knows?”
“It’s in the works,” a source close to James said when asked just how much a fifth MVP — which would put him in the same company with only Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — is motivating the Cavs superstar. “He feels like he’s been slighted a few times already. Why not No. 5 in Year 14? Let’s go for it.”
“I feel great,” James said. “I feel great, man. I feel better than I felt at 19. Nineteen, I didn’t know my body. I didn’t know that … you can do things at 19 that you obviously can’t do at 31, but as far as being in shape and putting in all the training I put in during the season, I feel like I picked up right where I left off. I mean, I’m in a good groove so far.”
