Lakers LeBron James’ hilarious response to being dubbed “the oldest player in the NBA” prompts fans to go nuts

LeBron James has been a dominant force in the NBA for more than a decade and show no signs of slowing down. The Los Angeles Lakers star has been often ridiculed because of his age in the league. LeBron is 38 years old, an age where most of the professional NBA players call it a day and retire.

However King James has always shown enthusiasm when it comes to playing at an elite level. He has shut down rumours of retirement many times and has clearly expressed his desire to keep playing. And in his usual fashion, LeBron recently responded to him being dubbed as “the oldest player in the NBA” and the fans are absolutely loving it, adding witty replies of their own.

LeBron James’ hilarious response to “the oldest player in the NBA” remark

LeBron James was dubbed as the “oldest player in the NBA” which is somewhat correct. He is 38 years old and is significantly older than most of the rookies who are going to play their rookie season this year. However, King James doesn’t take comments on his age very nicely, he responded to the dubbing with a video where he screamed ridiculously upon listen the headline and then proceeded to perform a high-class dunk showcasing his still elite level skills to shut down the comments.

LeBron is indeed the oldest “active” player playing in the NBA right now. However, this doesn’t mean that he has faded away or is a shadow of his prime self. The LeBron from the Miami Heat days was sure a beast of different level, but with loads of experience now, the current LeBron James is no less than a dangerous veteran. He can still perform at the highest level and despite being 38 years old he has proven to be competitive, and sometimes even better than other 24-year-olds.
