At 37-years-old and after years of action in the League, the days of the King’s health is guaranteed are over. Since coming over to LA, James has dealt with various leg injuries, notably missing 27 games in the 2018-2019 season with a groin injury. Even with Father Time encroaching, James has managed to dominate still, putting up 29.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 6.2 assists.
Just last week, James scored 56, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished three assists in a 124-116 dub over the Warriors that ended their four-game slide. The Lakers (28-36) have 18 games remaining to take the eighth seed from the Clippers (34-33).
