LeBron James Is Making History Right Before Our Eyes

Much like a fine wine, LeBron James continues to improve with age.

The 33-year old has been absolutely unstoppable through the 2018 NBA postseason, averaging just shy of a triple-double with 34.3 points, 9 assists, and 9.4 rebounds. With a 128-93 blowout win last night, the Cavaliers put the finishing touches on a sweep over the No. 1 seed Raptors.

James’ supporting cast in Cleveland has been dubbed some of the worst in his 15-year career but it doesn’t seem to matter. When No. 23 is on the court, he takes over the entire dynamic of the game. There’s no another player in the NBA that can play all five positions and do it productively.

Whether it’s the first or last play of the game, good things happen when James has the ball in his hands.

James advances to his eighth straight Eastern Conference Finals as the Cavaliers await the winner of the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers. With a series win, they’ll likely find themselves up against the Houston Rockets or a rematch with the Golden State Warriors.

Say what you want about the lack of competition he’s faced over the years, to do what James has done consistently for this amount of time is incredible. That’s something even the critics can’t deny.

Forget the James vs. Jordan debate, let’s just appreciate that we are watching something truly special unfold before our eyes.
