Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James scored 37 points against the Houston Rockets on November 19 while shooting 14-of-19 from the field, 2-of-5 from 3 and 7-of-9 from the foul line.

After the game, LeBron told Dave McMenamin of ESPN that his “bounce” is back. That has to be a terrifying quote for the rest of the NBA to hear since LeBron is the oldest player in the league but still looks like an MVP player.

“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.”
