Quote:LeBron James surprised to learn he's older than Jazz head coach Will Hardy

In a revelation that caught Lakers superstar LeBron James off guard, the 38-year-old NBA icon discovered that he is not only the oldest player on the court but also older than Utah Jazz's head coach, Will Hardy, who is 35.

Following a strong performance against the Jazz, where James contributed 17 points, 7 rebounds, and 9 assists, the news of being senior to coach Hardy left LeBron in amused disbelief.

“I'm older than who?” James exclaimed. “I'm older than…oh, wow. Oh my goodness. I don't even mind. Yeah, that's a good one. You got me on that one. You got me on that one. That's crazy.”

James, often regarded as one of the league's seasoned veterans, continues to defy age with his outstanding contributions on the court.

Despite reaching the advanced stage of his illustrious career, James maintains an impressive stat line this season, averaging 26.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 6.5 assists in just 34.4 minutes per game.

Quote:LeBron James proclaims himself GOAT after reaching 39,000 points

Los Angeles Lakers' superstar LeBron James achieved a historic milestone, becoming the first NBA player to reach 39,000 points. The record was broken in the win against the Jazz.

The four-time NBA champion widened the gap from second-place Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list.

Taking to Instagram, LeBron confidently declared, “Top 2 and I'm not 2. 1 of 1!” alongside a photo commemorating his 39,000 career points, solidifying his claim to the GOAT status.

Amidst the ongoing GOAT debate comparing James to Michael Jordan, it's noteworthy that MJ has consistently refrained from proclaiming himself as the greatest.

LeBron's bold proclamation adds fuel to the enduring discussion about who truly holds the title of the greatest basketball player of all time.
