LeBron James Set to Become the Oldest Player in NBA History
This upcoming season is set to be a historic one for LeBron James as he prepares for his 21st campaign in the NBA. The renowned “king of the NBA” has shattered numerous records throughout his career, but now he is about to achieve something that he has never done before – becoming the oldest player in the entire NBA.
With Udonis Haslem and his 43 non-league seasons and the unofficial retirement of Andre Iguodala, LeBron, at 39 years old (turning 40 on December 30th), will take the mantle as the league’s oldest player. While this might be a cause for concern for many athletes, LeBron seems unfazed by the passage of time.
The four-time NBA champion has consistently defied age, putting up impressive numbers in the previous season. He averaged 28.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 6.8 assists under the guidance of coach Darvin Ham. Although he may no longer be in his prime, LeBron remains one of the best players in the league and will once again lead the Los Angeles Lakers, a team that is poised to make a significant impact this year.
As LeBron enters uncharted territory as the oldest player in NBA history, basketball fans around the world eagerly anticipate witnessing the continued greatness of this legendary athlete.
