It’s a birthday fit for a king. LeBron James is 33 years old today. He is arguably the greatest basketball player (still) playing today. In fact, he might just be the greatest of all time. That debate rages on. But up until now, what has the achieved? And, what’s left? In his 15th NBA season, LeBron is averaging 27.8 points per game. Thus far, that’s his highest mark since the 2009-10 season—when he was just 25 years old. He’s also averaging 8.2 rebounds, 9.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks this season. All of those marks are from last season except rebounds (0.4 fewer per game). Needless to say, LeBron appears to be getting better with age. But what else is there? He is a 13-time All-Star, four-time MVP and three-time Finals MVP. But that’s not all. LeBron currently finds himself seventh among all-time leading scorers. This season, he will become just the seventh 30,000-point scorer.
At 33, There’s Not Much Left for LeBron to Achieve
