Only Kobe Bryant did better at 37, scoring 60 points for the Lakers in his 2016 farewell to the NBA.
There is no question of retirement for LeBron James who, at the same age, registered 56 pawns for the same franchise, this Saturday.
"LBJ" greatly helped the Lakers to return to victory at the expense of Golden State (124-116).
This season James is of a formidable address because he is above 50% and this was again seen on Saturday (19/31, including 6/11 at long distance, 10 rebounds).
And his points average has not been so high since the season… 2007-2008.

However, with Anthony Davis too often injured and Russell Westbrook in great difficulty, although in the blow on this match (20 points), the "King" must be at its peak for his Lakers to exist this season, while 'they seem doomed to go through the play-offs to compete in the play-offs.
A fourth quarter of madness
While Stephen Curry's Warriors (30 points) led at the start of the fourth quarter, James caught fire, chaining three baskets behind the arc, to restore the advantage to his team (100-97), opening a crazy sequence where the two teams responded tit-au-tac.
Finally, after Golden State returned to three lengths in the dying seconds, it was he who found Carmelo Anthony (14 points) for the fatal banderilla.
“The energy of despair carried us,” commented the superstar.
“They were leading and I didn't want us to be too far behind.
We needed this victory, it means a lot to our supporters, who deserve it, because we haven't been playing well lately.
Thanks to their leader, whose personal best in a game is 61 points, the Lakers end a series of four losses, but remain stuck in 9th place in the Western Conference.
