But I just came here to make movies though! Ain't that what ya'll said right!?!? 

Many wondered the reason behind LeBron’s moment to reply to the criticism, to which he made that crystal clear post their win against the Rockets and said that sometimes there is a need to remind people. This served as a reminder for all of his teammates and his critics of what he is capable of with his scoring prowess and impressive athleticism on the floor.

Despite teammate jokes about his frequent layups, he responded by proving his team-player status, citing a crucial assist to Austin Reaves in a game against the Rockets. Additionally, James sees his rivalry with Dillon Brooks as motivation, expressing how competition drives him to excel and appreciating the push to be the best.

LeBron James surpasses Clyde Drexler in all-time stats

The LA Lakers superstar LeBron James is making history and is breaking records in his 21st NBA season. James in the league has been the sole reason to carry the team to eight wins and placing themselves in the sixth position in the Western Conference standings. Along with that during his 37-season-high record in their match against the Houston Rockets, James also added three steals, surpassing Clyde Drexler in 8th most steals.

LeBron James once again made history by surpassing Hall of Famer Clyde Drexler in the most number of steals. James in recent times was also known to be one of the top scorers and made history. Despite his age, James has been nothing but spectacular and has also been the only player who has scored 35+ points in back-to-back games this season, with one against the Houston Rockets and the Portland Trailblazers.

The only thing that’s in question is the team’s sole dependence on the 19-time NBA All-Star. Despite his age, James has been playing for additional game time and has been carrying the team but if the legend wants to continue helping the team, he may need to take a step back and take things slow as the current way of things may not be sustainable for the long term.
