Default Is this Lebron's best season?

28.5/8.6/7.8. Shooting 58% from the field, 42% from 3, and 77% from the FT line.

Could this be his best yet?

He's killing it. Father Time gets to every player. His body is insanely conditioned, but it's scary. We saw a swift decline from Kobe and he too was insanely conditioned. Lots and lots of miles and minutes on them feet!

To be fair he's only 32 and built like a tank.. Kobe wasn't close to the athlete or build Lebron is

Kobe didn't fall off until he blew out his Achilles at 34.

I don't know if I'd call this LeBron's best season simply because everybody's stats are inflated across the league now because of how the game's evolved. He's been incredible though.

I think this is his best season. He's mastered the efficiency game which I appreciate the most. He's improved his fourth quarter play. Cavs are winning close games with him as the closer.

LeBron's best season will forever be 2007 when he pretty much singlehandedly took that garbage Cavaliers team to the finals.

Don't @ me.

He is leading the NBA in minutes played. He better be putting up those numbers.

The question really should be is this his best start to a season?

We are 19 games into the season. It is quite a stretch to look at his statistics now and ask if it is his best season ever. He is one of the top 5 players to ever play the game. A stretch of 19 games is not worthy of being compared to his career achievements. Also, if he continues to play at this intensity and these minutes I doubt he will continue to be as efficient. That team needs to learn to play as a team and take some of the load off of his back as they head into December, January and February.

How does this year compare to the first 20 games of his other seasons in terms of stats, minutes and efficiency? That will be a better indicator as to where he is at this point.

If he continues on this pace, and can maintain it, and can get the Cavs to the finals then it will be in the running as his best season.

Man those early Cavs were dominant and so was 11/12 and 12/13. Hard to top those.

Cavs are gonna need to play some of the tougher teams.

They've played Hou and Bos and not much else.

2 and 2 vs the West so far.

You can pretty much put any 4 players in the league on the floor with him and there’s only one team that has a chance to beat him in 7 and it’s only cause they have 4 all stars in their prime. He’s just in that GOAT zone. Games become easy for him.

15 great years! It is really surprising that he is still the best player in the game today. He might not win a 4th ring but definitely included in my NBA Mt Rushmore.

Does it mean David Robinson's best season is when he averaged 8-8 in 2002-03?

Or Mitch Richmond and his 4ppg in 2001-02?

They werenít the leaders of those teams. They were complimentary pieces. LeBron is the focal point of his team. If he doesnít make it to the finals then it is a valid argument to say that seasons where he did get to the finals are better seasons in his career. If he goes on to win a ring as a complimentary player with team X at the age of 38 then the argument for that season will match your counterpoint.

I don't agree. LeBron can only control what he can control. One great example is the Finals in 2015 NBA Finals, when he had his best statistical output.

Nope, the Spurs would hold no fears for this Cavs team without Kyrie. Even with IT.

I'd take a Kawhi lead Spurs easily.

Probably a few.more teams could beat them too. LeBron needs to latch on to another Superstar if he wants another ring.

Spot on.

There's just 1 (unproven) team in the East standing in his way of another finals.

It's great he's put teams like Atl and Bkn to the sword early, but we really need to see him play 80 games before we get carried away.

Vegas has Cle pegged for 52 wins last time I checked. Hardly anything special.

He's playing great ball though. The Cavs go as far as he can take them. Previously Kyrie had a lot of say.

Kobe's body broke down to the miles on it. And he was never the same afterwards consistently. My point stands.

As an LBJ enthusiast, I have no idea how people don't have this guy on their Mt. Rushmore. He's 4th at worst in my eyes!

He is so much fun to watch. The NBA is currently stacked. I have not had this much watching basketball since the '90s. Love it.

Non playoff teams would beat a team of lebron and 4 nobodies in a 7 game series. If not, the opposing head coach should hang up his badge and never coach another game in his life

Lebron is top 3. If Lebron is able to play at a high level until he is close to 40 then he has an argument that he is at Jordan level or higher.

If you take Curry or KD from GSW they could still win the championship. If you take Lebron off the Cavs they might not even win their first round playoff series.
