In his 18th season in the NBA, at the age of 36, LeBron James is not taking any games off. The four-time NBA champion has just had two consecutive triple-double games, helping the Los Angeles Lakers win.
Former NBA champion Antoine Walker had high praise to James for the way he is playing while still saying Joel Embiid is the favorite to win the MVP award.
“LeBron James is playing incredible. … We might never see this again. We really have to enjoy a guy, 18 years in, and being able to play at the level that he ‘s playing. But I still have Joel Embiid as the MVP leader,” Walker said on First Things First.
This season, James is averaging 25.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 8 assists per game for the reigning NBA champions.
