LeBron James: ‘I Don’t Get Tired’

LeBron James has continuously gotten better as his career goes on. Currently in year 18, James is 36 years old and still playing at an MVP level. 

James has led the Lakers to one of the best records in the NBA coming off of a championship-run just a few months ago. Although the 2020-21 season has been condensed down to 72 games, the schedule is still grueling for players, especially at James’ age. 

At least to this point in the season, James hasn’t had any issues physically or when it comes to his body getting tired. He spoke to members of the media recently on this topic. 

“I don’t get tired. I don’t feel tired. I get my sleep; I get my rest,” James said, per The Detroit News. “I have a lot of energy. I don’t get tired and my mindset never gets to the point where it’s like this is a long road trip or I’m exhausted or I’m tired.

“I don’t even think about that. When we have our games, I’m ready to go and when we’re not playing, I have an opportunity to rest and get my body back right and my mind refreshed.”

It’s certainly showing, as LeBron James plays with extraordinary energy every single game. He’s currently averaging 25.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game. James is also shooting a career-best .413 from deep as his game continues to adapt as he gets older.
