The Los Angeles Lakers have struggled this season as the ninth seed in the western conference. But the only thing that has been working for the Lakers has been LeBron James. The four-time NBA champion has been defining all odds as he is putting up 30.0 points on 52.3% shooting, 8.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists. The King had another statement game against the Cleveland Cavaliers as he scored 38 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists as LA won 131-120.
Alongside these incredible numbers, LeBron James is also playing with nearly the same athleticism which we have seen over the last decade. Against the Cavs, he had another out-of-the-world moment as he dunked all over former teammate Kevin Love in the second quarter.
Rookie Austin Reeves sent out a pass that opened up the lane and got LeBron a one-on-one matchup with love. The four-time MVP turned on his after-burners and surged over Kevin Love to throw down a soaring dunk.

“I’m really having the time of my life”
After the game, James addressed all the narratives surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers season so far. He said, “None of that stuff matters to me,” he said. “I’m having a blast playing the game of basketball. Once I leave the arena, I leave it there. I’m really having the time of my life right now. I’m working through it and we’re working through it and that’s all that matters.”
