The Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers are about to beginning their battle in the NBA Finals. One of the biggest tasks for the Heat will be taking care of LeBron James.

Despite being 35-years-old and playing his 17th NBA season, LeBron is still one of the best if not the best player in the league.

Miami’s star Jimmy Butler acknowledged the level that James is playing at, also saying the Heat are the team that is up for the task.

“He’s still at the top of his game at 35 at 26 or 21. He’s still dominating. You had to got at him at 26, 25, probably at 49. But he’s showing why he is the player that he is why he’s had the career and the legacy that he’s continually building,” Butler said.

“It’s not gonna be an easy task these next couple of games. If anybody’s up for that task, the Miami Heat are.”
