LeBron James, the oldest player in the NBA, challenges Kareem Abdul-Jabbar once more with a roundup of records shattered.

Tonight’s 55-minute-long game was a slap in the face for all the naysayers of LeBron James. Being the oldest active player in the league, he has been subject to much criticism, particularly on a dull day. But the double-overtime victory against an equally dominant dynasty proved that King James was not a washed-up old man. He might be challenging Father Time in every possible way, but Bron does so with singular determination.

And the results were spectacular! Along with pulling his Lakers to a closely contested 145-144 win, the ‘Akron Hammer’ broke a few records as well. His triple-double is the star of the show and Bron is once again in league with the NBA great, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with his numbers. The last time a Laker posted a 30-20-10 game was Kareem, and he hasn’t been in the league since the ’80s.

This was not the only record he broke for the night. James’ 36 points, 12 assists, and 20 rebounds are a career-high in rebounds for the regular season games.

 

And finally, the 39-year-old became the oldest player in the league history to post a 30-20 game.

The Lakers might be struggling, but LeBron surely is breaking records left and right. To write about each one of them, even the recent ones, would need an entire article dedicated just to that. So, let’s take a look at the most recent achievement, aside from tonight’s, of course.

LeBron James makes history with the NBA All-Star selection

As if this season didn’t have enough milestones, markers, and records that King James broke, the All-Star announcement became the cherry on top. As the league announced the starters for the All-Star game on Thursday, LeBron was given the captaincy of the Western Conference. Not a surprise. But with this season’s selection, the 4x MVP made history once again as the only player to be an All-Star for the 20th time!

The West’s lineup will feature Nikola Jokic, Kevin Durant (don’t say he didn’t warn you), Luka Doncic, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Another shocking turn of events was that Stephen Curry wasn’t on the list. After headlining the All-Star game for many years, it was quite a surprise, and probably a snub to be left out of the starters.

The reserves are yet to be announced. Since that is in the hands of the coaches, Steph could find his name on the list. What do you think? Will he be left out in the reserves as well? Or will his individual accomplishments be enough to keep him in the game? Let us know your thoughts!
