While the Los Angeles Lakers were forced to endure yet another loss in a controversial manner, no one can argue against why the NBA refs did not blow the whistle. On the same note, LeBron James’ 40-point game managed to edge his name in a wild NBA record.

King James now has 100 30-point games for the Lakers, making him the first player in league history to do so for three different franchises, per ESPN Stats & Info.

This is a testament to how LeBron James has sustained dominance over his 20-year NBA career so far. It’s definitely an underrated aspect of his game, but the Los Angeles Lakers superstar continues to defy father time and show everyone he still has plenty of basketball left in him. Hopefully, the 38-year-old can break many more records by the time he steps on the NBA hardwood.
