LeBron James wants to change the way players think about their prime

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James will actually be in Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz at Vivint Arena for the second time this season on Saturday, Dec. 30. "(14) days, this is my 15 season, and this is the best I've felt in my career", he said. "I want it all!" "But you're not going to deal away your chance at a top player in this draft for the right to lose to the Warriors again", the executive said, according to Sporting News.

The aforementioned pick is the Brooklyn Nets' first-round selection in the 2018 draft and it is very valuable since it's expected to land near the top of the lottery. LeBron moves into sixth place on the NBA's all-time triple-doubles list, as he broke a tie with former Boston Celtics standout Larry Bird.

Deveney noted Cleveland may be without Isaiah Thomas next season-who it also acquired in the Irving trade-if it elects against giving him a sizeable contract as a potential free agent. No one knows where he's headed, perhaps including James himself.

As Shelburne and Windhorst have noted in their report, the four-time National Basketball Association (NBA) most valuable player (MVP) won't be making a decision early in the season. "Just kind of take the narrative out of 'you're past your prime when you get 31, ' or 'you're past your prime when you're in your 12 year in the league, ' or whatever the case may be".

Individual goals are no longer his thing at this point of his career, but the way he's playing, he would certainly like to add another Most Valuable Player trophy to his collection if the opportunity presents itself.
