  • Guys, every second you watch of these highlights, you witness history. What is before your very eyes, when your old the kids will be talking about the legend the one known as LeBron James

  • Please read about ANDREW YANG.

  • With the NBA playing defense like this, Bron will be playing with his grandchildren in the league.

  • 🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐💯💯💯🔥✊🏿

  • Is it me or he is a slower than last years?

    • Mj and Karl Malone won MVP age 35

    • @Fadoul Tchadizinde idk. he has to play like 19 or 20 imo.

    • Caner Erten At the end of the day he is 35 years old. What do you expect?

  • Natural PG

  • The only #1 draft pick that has been consistently playing beyond average throught their careers.

  • Yummy or the box I go wit the box Lebrun better than Mj and Kobe and od he the g.o.a.t period

  • 2:22-2:46 - i like this left-handed lay-up!

  • i have the slight impression that james improved his ballhandling almost significantly. which is really amazing, because it is already hard per se to do that and it is even harder the older you get and with way over 30years of age its pretty much unilkely to change it or get better

  • Hes not even trying 12-16 sheesh

  • The Lakers have to run iso with kuzma, just like ad and bron do. Bron holding the all for too longg

  • what else do you want from a more complete player goat hames

  • Rank of player value on Lakers (adv stats): LBJ AD (Cousins out) Dwight Green McGee KCP AC Dudley Bradley Rondo Kuz TD QC This tells me that AC and Dudley should be getting way more minutes. Iguodala would be best add by far. Collison would be good add. Kuzma for Covington would be great trade. And Lebron is ridiculous with 9.5 BPM this year (by comparison AD is 7.2).

    • Donna Dunbar yes he is

    • Bron not top ten all time

    • Joe Frazier's Left Hook he can control his effort. He could become next level by playing hard defense each play. If he did, he could easily become as good as Green. I think a threshold of Iggy is a bit high for him.

  • I'm sorry but if 31 is "go off" worthy ah ah... If it's just points than 40+ if it's less than that then add some blocks and ankle breaks or something..

    • Grammar Police - Your name is Grammar police and you can’t even spell. Oh the irony

  • 177th comment lakers need wins 🎾⚾️🏈🏀⚽️

  • Look last season showed that Lebron needs a team of veterans to win. He’s different than Jordan and Kobe , they weren’t 6’9 270 pounds of muscle, he has the advantage over everyone because he’s a freak. Jordan and Kobe had to use a lot of arsenal to get the shot off.

    • wassup But lebron is still great. He’s a goat but not the goat if that makes sense

    • You call Lebron the goat , but he lost 6 championships with superstars on his side, everyone just needs to leave it be , Jordan 6-0 two 3 peats, and he took time off in between. That’ll never be duplicated

    • wassup by year 3 lebron was a top 10 arguably player in the league and an all around good player not just scorer like Kobe. I understand Kobe played behind ppl like Eddie Jones early but even if u put prime kobe and shaq together kobe would still be a sidekick I don’t think you can say the same for Lebron

    • Iverson was 6’0 165 and he did what he did. If Lebron was 6’6 200 with the same skills, he’d be in the D league

    • Not saying he’s the goat, I give more credit to the less dominant players that don’t have the luxury of just driving to the basket for layups all game long due to advantage

  • He’s so big and strong, all his points are lay ups and dunks. Everything is a easy bucket for him. He can raise up over most defenders because he’s 6’9, he can drive on anyone because of that freakish strength. Jordan and Kobe didn’t have that advantage so they actually had to be crafty and force shots time to time. This guy straight dribbling with the right or left hand all the way to the basket with ease

    • 2009-2010 bosh avg 24.0 pts 11 reb , he was top 4 in mvp race. That was the season before he went to Miami . Shaq was the superstar , Malone and Payton were over the hill , gasol is great but not a superstar, Odem is just a supporting cast. Kobe was never surrounded by three point shooters like Lebron. Count all the three point shooters that Lebron has had that made over 600 threes in their career. Count how many Kobe had. Lebron always set up to get stats

    • wassup um the only superstar he had are wade, Irving, love, and now Davis. He lost in 07 because his first cavs team was horrible. He did choke in 2011 to an amazing mavs team that swept lakers. He lost in 2014 to spurs dynasty. He lost in 2015 because love and Irving were injured. He lost in ‘17 and ‘18 because KD was on warriors team. Not mention, Kobe and Jordan had superstars as well. Don’t act like they did everything on their own.

    • Exactly, it’s easier for him than it was for Jordan and Kobe due to his freakish size and ability, yet he still lost 6 championships with superstars at his side. The media keeps shoving the idea of him being the goat down everyone’s throat. Tired of that fool already

    • Got outplayed by Jason Terry in finals😂😂😂

  • Legends has it triston thompsons is still waiting to dab up lebron

  • The way Lebron was playing reminded me of prime Kobe

  • Check out Dwight on the bench. Celebrates every score. I don’t think ppl appreciate how good of a guy he is...he does have a strange personal life though 😂

  • King James

  • That handshake w/ K-Love soooooo CLEAN 🙈👀🔥

  • LeBron taking Thompson to the hoop at the end :,(

  • 2:52 thats a 35 year old smaking glass twice with ease🤧

    • Vontizzle 96 didnt even peep that it was twice lol

  • Bron was straight ballin💯💯💯💯

  • Most unselfish player in NBA history

    • Donna Dunbar 100% bullshit. Like... Steph made sure he got his...

    • Curry magic n stockon most unselfish players EVER

    • Curry most unselfish player in NBA

    • Most unselfish SUPERSTAR ever

    • Ramon Vicente Vallesteros Ricafrente Not at all. Stockton was never the scorer nor did he have the scoring potential of LeBron. He was a primary playmaker. Stockton played #2 with one of the greatest scorers ever.

  • MVP!!

  • Team up 20 points and lebron still playing lol bad look hes stat padding 100%

  • If only he could play like this against the clippers, with such confidence and all that hot dogging with his tongue hanging out, but against the clippers or any of the top teams he just looks shook, like he see’s the boogie man or something 🤦‍♂️

    • Clippers goin to the finals

    • Clippers winning the title🏆. Lebron scared of kawhi

    • I D I think Lebron is still the best player in the league, but you have to admit he looks and plays different against the best teams and I hate the clippers

    • 😕 y'all really think leBron afraid of the clippers don't y'all ? we'll see in the spring who scared of who

  • The NBA is trash now just watch all those points he had and nobody played any defense..NBA is like a Globetrotters game now

  • Every site sports post and videos with lebron in it there always hating i never seen nothing like this before all the player's in basketball all the 1st and second picks that's busts and overrated players to hate on and dislike it's like this man clearly the best ever alround player that play's the 3 spot but plays every position he my not be the goat as they say but he in a class by his self not team but player team get rings

  • MY KING!!!


  • he's holding back

  • Check out dwight on the bench.. best cheerleader

  • 3:18 he spared Kevin Love's life....what a Friend!!

  • *LBJ* The most effecient NBA scorer in HISTORY 51% Career average. Higher than 49% from Jordan and 44% from Kobe

    • Facts

    • Satanic Skater I don’t care, you don’t know basketball. Kobe is top 5, a lot of retired players think so, Magic thinks he is the greatest laker ever. So stfu

    • @Train Hard Kobe #11 or #12 though i can understand some people put him #8 or #9 in all time list. But that's about it, don't go crazy with top 5 😅

    • Ben Simmons he played 20 years, so most missed shots is irrelevant. His finals average doesn’t even tell the whole story clown

    • William Stephenson in no order. LeBron, MJ, Bird, Magic, Kareem, Wilt, Shaq, Bill Russell, Duncan, Hakeem. Nearly everyone I’ve ever spoken to has Kobe outside the top 10. He had Shaq (a top 10er) average like 35 and 15 and hand him 3 rings (Shaq was fmvp), most missed shots ever, only has 2 fmvp, his finals averages were like 25 4 5 which is trash for greats. He’s overrated

  • Which Lebron's are Lebron wearing? They look nice.

  • Champions 2020

  • What happened to the flu? Oh I forgot he only gets it when he comes to Okc 🤧

    • Oche Wright I mean okc still lost to the Lakers without James Davis and Green it’s not like they needed him

  • Lebron " The King" of Making things happen against teams that don't matter.

  • If Tristan Thompson is 6’11 Lebron is too

  • only old bums 60+ like skip bayless think jordan is better than Ol'GOAT James

    • Mj Kobe Kareem magic and bird better than Lebron💯💯💯💯💯 and I'm 26

    • @luisxo the process

    • Don’t forget they traded you to make lonzo the leader only to trade him a season later 😳

  • LeBron heat up in the second half in garbage time when Lakers were up 23 pts. I wonder how come he can recover from flu that fast.

  • He looks better than ever, it’s so messed up lol

    • And Lebron a walking TRASH can

    • If Lebron does that then i will fasho give him his props💯 but I don't think he will drop ANOTHER 50+ point game again

    • Donna Dunbar man could drop 100 one game and you’d still call him trash smh

    • @Donna Dunbar your a walking clown

    • Bron trash

  • I love Kawhi but mehn Lebron is better

    • Donna Dunbar Kawhi can’t rebound, playmake and rebound like Lebron you fool 🤦🏽‍♂️

    • Kawhi better than Lebron fool

    • LD77 FAN That’s right, I forgot Kawhi is better because he went to -9 straight finals -beat a 73-9 team -won in the finals while being down 3-1 against a team with 9 losses. 🥴

    • @LD77 FAN he was hurt 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    • Kawhi is the reigning Finals MVP. LeBron didn't make the playoffs last year.

  • Poor Cleveland fans. 😟 They made it to the finals 4 years in a row and now they gotta root for the potential of 2 undersized ball stopping point guards with tunnel vision and last night they had to watch LeBron put on a show in the 4th quarter against him that he used to do in their uniform 😂 I'm sorry it's not funny 🤣🤣🤣


  • Skip bayless tomorrow: 2 rebounds? You’re 6’9 and can only get 2 rebounds in the game? Phony GOAT

    • "He's chasing Michael B Jordan"

    • You're exactly right cuz that's what he did lol

    • @Stay Humble ''He stays in the game when it's game over!! STAT PADDING"" Yeah, sounds like Skip

    • MIDNightPT4 😂😂💯

  • what a fucking legend

  • MVK And don't act like you don't know what it stands for.

  • Playing Like the MVP Currently 👀........

    • @Donna Dunbar Scoring the most points doesn't make you the MVP bro. This ain't a scoring title it's the Most Valuable Player award and the two front runners are 1. Giannis 2. LeBron

    • Giannis averaging more points than Lebron

    • Giannis or HARDEN go win MVP

    • Swag God that could possibly happen and adding on to how great he’s playing , I feel like right now he’s not giving 100% more like 80-85% and he’s still playing at an amazing level. Playoffs are gonna be scaaaary

    • @PritamTv I mean its halfway thru like the guy above me said, I really believe Lebron has a strong case if he ups his scoring to 27 and assists to 11, lebron is mad efficient himself and hast 8 rebounds to add to that, also I believe his narrative is better, being 35 and all. I do believe the bucks would have to hit a slight slump tho

  • On the cavs and knicks thirty is not much , ad still better

  • Lebron also pass Isiah Thomas in assists that's pretty cool

    • he maybe end up being in 3 of the 5 main stats in basketball top ten players all time, points assists and steals. im not sure about the steals tho.^^

  • If lebron avgs 26 the next 5 games he'll be top 3 all time scoring

  • Most of them near basket I bet....glad Bron bron had a day to rest his taint saturday

  • He still doing this ! Year 17 plus 3 extra seasons of total playoff games 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • The Cavs losing with Lebron on the court. Some things never change

    • Patrick he won one and warriors had a way better roster

    • Mehh. This comment was better suited for AD and Pelicans. Nice try though

    • Yeah Bc golden state had a super team

    • @DillyJ And lost

    • Patrick they literally went to the finals every year after he got back from Miami wym
