It is likely that James will crack the top five, maybe even top four by the end of his career, but it would be a near miracle if he were to break the record.

Nonetheless, James’ play as of late has been nothing short of great. At 33 years old, James is playing some of the best basketball of his entire career.

“I’ll be 33 in 15 days,” James said. “This is my 15th season, and this is the best I’ve felt in my career. I want it all.”

Following a slow start, the Cavaliers currently sit at second place in the Eastern Conference with a 22-8 record behind the Boston Celtics.
