In great shape on this start of the season, LeBron James seems to have found the hair of the beast after a year 2018-2019 complicated.`
This season and on a sample of 7 games, LeBron James turns to 261 points (48.1%), 8.3 rebounds, and 11.1 assists per game. Taking advantage of the arrival of Anthony Davis to not have to take care of all the scoring, it focuses more on the playmaking. Reinvigorated in defence within a workforce already well-armed in the sector, the King also plays for the time being 35 minutes per game ; his lowest playing time in his career. In short, it is optimized to its maximum capacity and at 34 years of age, this its importance in the optics of a big run in the playoffs.
Just after the third triple-double in three games of James a first in 32 years for a Laker (Magic Johnson was the last one before), Kendrick Perkins, analyst of ESPN, and former team-mate of the King, revealed : “LeBron to me has well said that he was going to recover his throne in due time… and damn it, he’s on a mission now ! “Obviously determined to prove to the world that he is not finished, James tweeted a wry “King rinsed” after his last performance… history to definitively answer its critics.
