LeBron James Makes History With 56 Points at 37 Years Old

The Lakers may be awful, but few things are more impressive than the never-ending greatness of LeBron James. LeBron’s Lakers beat Steph Curry and the Warriors on Saturday (124-116) behind LBJ’s 56-point night. It was the most points The King has scored in a Laker uniform, and he joined elite company, becoming the fourth player in NBA history to score 50-plus at age 37 or older (Jamal Crawford, Kobe Bryant & Michael Jordan). LeBron said he was fueled by desperation after Los Angeles (28-35) had lost four straight and eight of their last ten. The Lakers are three losses away from slipping out of the playoff picture, but ‘Bron is still ‘Bron.
