Former artistic gymnast MyKayla Skinner and her husband Jonas Harmer have their hands full. Little Charlotte, or Lottie, their firstborn, is keeping them on their toes. To find time for any other pursuit, they have no recourse but to multitask. For instance, there was the time Harmer rocked the toddler to sleep whilst keeping an eye on the televised NBA match. His GOAT, LeBron James, was not part of the cast during that game.

In fact, that match was between the Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Warriors won 141-139 in one candidate for NBA game of the season. LeBron James, who turns out for the Los Angeles Lakers, was understandably not involved then. Jonas Harmer, a big fan of the NBA, reveled in what has so far proved to be one of James’ best seasons dribbling a basketball.

Jonas Harmer took to his social media handle. He shared a story with an image originating from the account, Witness King James. The image had plenty of LeBron James’ statistics for the season accompanying it. According to that, James recorded career-high scores on some metrics, such as field goal percentage, effective field goal percentage, and two-pointers. In others, he has recorded his best since the 2013-14 season.

The 2013-14 season was James’ last campaign with the Miami Heat. His team was the eventual NBA runners-up that season, losing to the San Antonio Spurs in the Finals. Since that unsuccessful campaign, LeBron James has recorded his best numbers in true shooting percentage and three-pointers this year. This is his 21st season in the NBA. And still, he has been the jewel of the Lakers’ crown.

He is nearing the end of his career, after all.
