LeBron James is 33 years, in his 15th season in the NBA and he still is playing at an elite level.
He is averaging the most assists of any year of his NBA career with 9.0 and the second most rebounds per game at 8.4.
He also just became the 1st member of the 30k-8k-8k points, rebounds and assists club and finished the month of February averaging a triple-double.

In his legendary NBA career this is the first time he has ever accomplished such a feat, pretty incredible.
He also became the oldest player in NBA history to accomplish the feat…

Apparently he has been motivated by Russell Westbrook’s historic propensity for triple-doubles or has become an even better player in his 14th and 15th NBA season as he has averaged 12.5 triple doubles the past two seasons to this point, after averaging 3.2 per season over his first 13 seasons…
LeBron James's triple-double tonight was his 25th in the past two seasons.
That's a big increase from his pace of 42 triple-doubles in his first 13 NBA seasons. pic.twitter.com/xzKIHPii9Z

He will have to continue to play at this level if the Cavaliers want to return to the NBA Finals again.
