The Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James finished his 17th regular season as the assists leader. The three-time NBA champion averaged 10.2 assists per game at the age of 35. It seems it wasn’t just a coincidence.

Before the start of this season, LeBron was told by the basketball trainer Cuffs The Legend he could average 10+ assists a game. To which James responded “Got you!”. Now that the regular season is over, The King shared the message with the public.

This was confirmed by Cuffs The Legend too as he shared the same screenshot and wrote: “BEFORE this season started i told LeBron James I think he could average 10+ assists and hey what do you know…. NBA Assist Leader in Year 17.”
