On October 24, the National Basketball Association (NBA) will kick off the new season with a showdown between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers. Many will be excited to see LeBron James, who will enter the 21st round of his career and is now the oldest active player in the league. He turns 39 in December.
On Thursday (October 5), the NBA shared a short video on Twitter, in which a reporter asked James how he felt about receiving the above title. The four-time champion let out a humorous scream before delivering a monster dunk that reminded those who thought he might have lost some of his abilities due to age.
During a recent media day interview with Spectrum SportsNet, James talked about how he continues to compete with younger players for another ring. “Obviously, I think it all starts with the mind,” he said. “You know, the mind controls everything. I think being able to keep my mind fresh… allows my body to keep up. Then I can continue to get in the gym and continue to get ready for next season. “I feel like I Had a great summer. “
He also revealed the reasons behind his decision to return to the court, which included his 18-year-old athlete son Bronny James and 16-year-old Bryce James, as well as the progress the Lakers front office and coaching staff have made this offseason.
“Honestly, if I want to keep it real, the job that (coach Davon Hamm) and (general manager Rob Pelinka) did with the acquisitions that we made, that motivated me as well,” LeBron explained . “I feel like we have a really good team. They’ve done a great job with this summer Being able to re-sign some of the players we already had with camaraderie. “
