Gilbert Arenas, a former NBA standout, holds the view that LeBron James, a prominent player for the Los Angeles Lakers, is creating a significant amount of stress for others due to his exceptional performance despite his advanced age.

“It just puts so much pressure on people,” Arenas said. “The fact that he’s 39, doing what he’s doing, makes 30 seem like you’re a rookie. Now we have a glimpse of what 38 and 39 is capable of doing, which means when players are looking like they’re slowing down at 31, 32, I don’t know how we accept that anymore.”

During the 2022-23 season, James demonstrated that he remains among the NBA’s premier talents. James maintained an impressive performance, recording an average of 28.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game. His shooting accuracy stood at 50.0 percent from the field and 32.1 percent from three-point range.
