After the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Houston Rockets on November 19, Austin Reaves revealed a “special” fact about LeBron James.

“The one special thing about Bron is,” Reaves said, “I’ve never really seen him in a bad mood. He’s always got energy. He’s the oldest player in the NBA but still acts like he’s 20 every day.”

LeBron scored 37 points against the Rockets while shooting 14-of-19 from the field, 2-of-5 from 3 and 7-of-9 from the foul line. The King is averaging 26.4 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.5 assists on the season.

“I have been able to be on the court a lot more during off days this year because of past injuries the last couple years with my foot or whatever the case may be,” LeBron told ESPN. “So to be able to hone in on everything that I need to do instead of having to get off my foot, unless we’re playing games has allowed me to stay in rhythm. I got my bounce back, my spring back, my quick twitch back and things of that nature.”

LeBron is up to 109 games with 30 or more points as a Laker. He is also third in NBA history with 237 career games with 35 points or more, trailing only Hall of Famers Wilt Chamberlain (381) and Michael Jordan (333).

“Just trying to push the limit,” LeBron said. “See how far I can take this thing. I don’t know. I mean, it’s me vs. Father Time.”
