Denver Nuggets head coach Michael Malone expresses his hopes for LeBron James to fatigue during their playoff series against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Acknowledging James’ enduring excellence in his 21st season, Malone anticipates the challenge posed by the Lakers superstar.

“It’s year 21, and the guy is getting better…I hope he gets tired. I hope he wears down. But I’ve seen no signs of LeBron James slowing down by any means,” he said, per Harrison Wind.

This season James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 8.3 assists in 35.3 minutes per game.
