Jason Kidd believes that LeBron James’ IQ will help him extend his career and play for another five or six years.

Kidd, a Hall of Famer and current Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach, says James will keep making the difference because of his elite mind.

“It’s going to help him play until he’s 40…His IQ is always going to help him because he’s going to be able to take less steps, right? Instead of running a six-mile race, he can run a five-mile race just because of his IQ,” Kidd said of James, per Melissa Rohlin of Sports Illustrated.

According to ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz, James has admitted that Kidd is the only person alive who sees the game of basketball with his level of clarity.
