LeBron James is currently playing his 18th season in the NBA, dominating everybody at age 36, even being considered to be the 2021 MVP alongside other players like Joel Embiid, Stephen Curry, or Nikola Jokic.
The King came from an already big season with the Lakers, winning the 2020 championship in the infamous Orlando bubble and now he’s set to repeat the feat with a team that is way better than last year.
Being dominant at this age isn’t normal; LeBron is doing things that nobody could do before and it’s unclear when his level will start decreasing. The superstar doesn’t show signs of slowing down and that has raised a lot of eyebrows around the league.
NBA fan says LeBron Jame is actually 26, not 36
His eternal youth seems to be a hot topic around the league and one fan decided to “reveal” the truth about James’ ages and how he’s been deceiving everybody since the very moment he entered the league in 2003.
“Wanna let y’all in on something... @KingJames is NOT 36. He’s really 26. He came into the league when he was 8 years old. I said what I said. It’s the only explanation that makes sense #Season18,” the fan wrote on Twitter.
That made a lot of noise and even LeBron reacted to it, using a series of emojis to tell this person that is a secret and they just told everybody about it. He really exposed LeBron with this one.
LeBron has just been great for the Laker this campaign, just when everybody thought he was going to suffer after the short turnaround the league had. So far, he’s posting 25.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.9 assists, and 1.1 steals per contest. The purple and gold are seen as the favorites to win the 2021 NBA championship and as long as they have LBJ playing at this level, things will keep that way.
