The LA Lakers star LeBron James is 36 years old but the King has proved time and again that age is just a number. James is one of the fittest athletes in the world and played a key role in taking LA Lakers to their 17th NBA title. The 36-year old had a complete previous season as he delivered the goods for his team.
This was the fourth NBA Championship for LeBron James and he was awarded the NBA Finals MVP for the fourth time in his glorious career. James has been an integral part of the LA Lakers and the amount of time he has spent on the court is unbelievable.
James has always worked hard on his fitness from the initial phase of his career and he is reaping all the fruits now. The champion player is known to sweat it out in the training sessions and he always gives his best to the team.
James has given special importance to fitness and it is one of the key reasons why he is currently one of the best players in the NBA. The amount of work James has put on his body is incredible and all the credit goes to his trainers.
James is one of the oldest players in the league as he came into the NBA from the 2003 Draft and he is playing his 18th season in the league. Former NBA champion Eddie House has heaped praise on Akron Hammer for his longevity.
Eddie House said while talking to ESPN, “It’s just the way it goes now. I feel like these guys feel, we’re not going to give you what we have right now. You’re not gonna be able to prepare for it. You’re not going to be able to see what we can give you until it’s time for us to give it to you. I don’t agree with it. That’s why I gotta tip my hat to LeBron. Only reason why he’s not playing because of some of the signs he’s been hurt. If he’s available, he’s always out there on the court playing.”
The legend has proved his mettle on multiple occasions and he will aim to continue his supremacy in the league. James is currently recuperating from the ankle sprain, which he suffered while playing against Atlanta Hawks.
