Lebron James has once again rewritten the history books of the NBA. Last night’s game saw him become the first player in the league’s history to reach 39,000 career points. This historic achievement came as the Los Angeles Lakers triumphed over the Utah Jazz with a decisive 131-99 victory, improving their record to 9-6.

James’ performance was brilliant, showcasing his remarkable efficiency and skill. In just 24 minutes on the court, he scored 17 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, and dished out 9 assists, converting six of his ten shot attempts. But it’s not just this game that highlights his extraordinary capabilities; it’s his performance throughout his 21st NBA season.

LeBron is currently shooting threes at an elite 41%, which would be a career-high for him. Far from being relegated to a spot-up shooter role, he remains the standout player on his team and is performing as a top three player in the league. This season, he has achieved career-highs in several statistical categories:

Career-best Field Goal Percentage (FG%): 58.6%
Career-best Three Point Percentage(3P%) 41.0%
Career-best True Shooting Percentage (TS%): 67.1%
Career-best Points per 36 Minutes: 29.3
Leading the NBA in restricted area Field Goal Percentage: 81.7%
Leading the NBA in fourth-quarter Points Per Game: 9.2
Leading the NBA in fourth-quarter plus/minus

With an average of 26.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, 6.5 assists, and 1.7 steals per game this season, LeBron is not just playing; he’s dominating. James is the sixth player in history to play at least 21 seasons in the NBA and he’s shattering records set by players in their 21st season. For example, the highest scoring average for a player in their 21st season, before LeBron, was held by Vince Carter at 7.4 points per game (PPG). The all-time rebounds (3.9) and assists (1.6) leader is Kevin Garnett, and Lebron is easily eclipsing those numbers, redefining the level of play that was expected of a year 21 player in NBA history.

Lebron has also been crucial to his team’s overall success. James’ fourth-quarter performances are particularly noteworthy, with a shooting percentage of 66.1% from the field. He is among the six players who have scored over 100 points in the fourth quarter this season, leading this group with the highest field goal percentage and overall, fourth-quarter scoring.

Moreover, LeBron’s impact on the Lakers is indisputable. With him on the court, the team is +15.0 points per 100 possessions, while without him, they fall to -11.7. This staggering 26.7-point swing underscores his invaluable presence.

When questioned about the inevitable battle with Father Time, LeBron confidently responded, “It’s me versus Father Time. I’m trying to change the narrative. Started it off with last year and trying to keep it going.”

LeBron James, is redefining what it means to be an athlete at year 21 and beyond. As he continues to challenge the norms and break records, one thing becomes increasingly clear: LeBron James will retire on his own terms, having successfully battled and, for now, defeated Father Time.
