Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James proved once again that his age is just a number. At 37 years old, King James continues to carry the Lakers, which showed Tuesday night with his 31-point, five rebound, and five assist performance in a 122-114 win over the Sacramento Kings.

“I’ve always put myself in a position where I can play heavy minutes and do whatever it takes to help this team win,” James said post-game. “Coach has done a good job, either through Frank (Vogel) or when Fiz (David Fizdale) was the interim coach at the time, just trying to watch my minutes at times, but we also need to win ball games as well.”

LeBron has averaged 37-plus minutes in 12 full seasons.

“I feel pretty good, I don’t feel like that I’m playing 37 minutes a game and it’s also not the record for me, I had a season where I averaged 42.5,” LeBron said in reference to when he was 21 and playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2005-06 season.

It was truly a team effort against the Kings with Malik Monk scoring 24 points, while Talen Horton-Tucker added 19 points off the bench, and Dwight Howard getting 14 points and 14 rebounds in just 21 minutes. In addition, Russell Westbrook had 19 points, seven rebounds, and two assists..
