It is hard not to like the Western Conference Champion Denver Nuggets who swept the Lakers. But it is also hard not to appreciate the sustained greatness of 38 year old LeBron James. Last night he played all 48 minutes in a game 7 loss and registered these stats – 40 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists, and 2 steals in the 20th year of his career. What other basketball player does that at that age? Two decades into their careers? If you’re answer is no one, you’re right! Even Kareem didn’t quite reach these lofty heights in his storied and long career.
