Los Angeles Lakers have been struggling to make an impact this season. The Lakers are now 17-19 this season with just one victory in the last seven games.

King James has turned 37 and is still carrying the Lakers. Without him, the Lakers look clueless on the court. But he has received little support from the other players and that has led to his team finding it hard to win.

In fact, despite playing just 23 games this season, James has more 30+ point games in the NBA than anyone else. He has had 13 games with 30 or more points this season and is turning out to be more productive than ever. He’s also been the Lakers player with the most points per game this season (28).
