REPORTS: “LeBron James Is Looking Like A Freight Train Back Again,” Claims Coach Ham

LeBron James has been an unstoppable force of nature ever since he debuted in the NBA. But last season, King James did the unthinkable. He broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 38-year-old record of all-time leading score. When the ‘Captain’ broke Wilt Chamberlain’s record in 1984, LBJ was not even born. It took almost four decades for somebody to break the ‘Captain’s record. And that somebody is none other than LeBron James. However, in late February, King James sustained a severe tendon injury on his right foot.

It looked like the season was over for him. But King James returned just after a month. However, the Lakers lost the Western Conference Finals miserably. That defeat hurt King James so much that he hinted twice about retirement. However, after all the dramas, King James is back for his 21st season, and experts believe he’s moving like the same old “Freight Train” as he once looked like.

Recently, a video went viral where LeBron James shocked AD and other teammates as he scored with a fadeaway perimeter jump shot. Moreover, Rob Pelinka said King James is training like a rookie for his 21st NBA season. Now, that’s the dedication of a great player to the game at its best. Recently, Darvin Ham told Jovan Buha of The Athletic that LBJ had regained his athleticism and burst since he recovered from the tendon injury on his right foot.

The impact of LeBron James on the Lakers team is unparalleled. Even at 38, LBJ maintained an average of 28.9 points, 6.8 assists, and 8.3 rebounds. Moreover, LeBron James was shooting 50% from the field and 32.1% three-pointers. He will be 39 next December, but if he manages to maintain the same average, he’ll stay as one of the best in the league. However, if LeBron James is healthier, then the Lakers have a great chance of winning the title next season.

LeBron James was the number one overall pick back in 2003. Later, he won the Rookie of the Year award as well. Before winning his first championship, LBJ won a couple of MVPs. But he was not getting any success with title wins. Later, he left the Cleveland Cavaliers and joined the Miami Heat. It turned out to be the right decision, as he won a couple of titles with the Heat. Later, he moved back to the Cavaliers to lead the side to back-to-back Eastern Conference wins. The King led his hometown franchise to back-to-back NBA Finals from 2015 to 2018.

However, he won only in 2016 with the Cavaliers. But it was a memorable victory as the Cavaliers became the first team to win the Finals, coming from a 1-3 deficit. Many LBJ fans believe that the 2016 victory was the most defining moment in his career. But King James left the Cavaliers again to join the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018. He won his fourth championship ring with the Lakers in 2020. Hence, undoubtedly, LBJ has been the most dominating player in the NBA in modern times.
