LeBron James is having a historic regular season, but does he have enough around him to deliver an NBA Championship to the Los Angeles Lakers?

LeBron James is the best player in the NBA. That might be a bit controversial to say this year – especially with the way Kawhi Leonard and Giannis Antetokounmpo are playing this year – nevertheless what he is doing at 35 years of age for the Los Angeles Lakers is nothing short of exceptional.

At the age of 35, many players would be on the wrong end of their careers. However, LeBron is still one of the most unstoppable forces in the NBA today.

While some may argue against him being a true NBA MVP candidate this season. Although he’s actually having quite the fascinating season. In 51 games played, he’s averaging 25 points, eight rebounds and nearly 11 assists per game.

The only real comparison for LeBron at this age, with this amount of on-court impact, is Michael Jordan. At age 35, Jordan, during the 1997-98 season, averaged 29 points, six rebounds and nearly four assists per game on his way to his sixth NBA Championship. Despite the great numbers, though, you could make the case that LeBron is having a bigger impact for the Lakers this season.

With his 6-foot-9 stature and strength, LeBron continues to drive to the hole with ease, find the open man with regularity and is even shooting a respectable 35 percent shooting from 3-point range.

It’s going to be interesting to see what we see from this team in the playoffs, especially considering that we could see a Western Conference Finals where opponents – possibly the LA Clippers – throw multiple defenders at him.

The big question for the Lakers, and their hopes of winning an NBA Championship this season, is whether or not the “other” Lakers will be enough to overcome a much-deeper Clippers team?

We know Anthony Davis will do great things, but will Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee, and Danny Green pitch in enough to offset a deeper team?

One interesting X-Factor could be Kyle Kuzma, who has gotten off to a rocky start this season – from beginning the season on the injury list to finding his name in the rumor mill at the NBA Trade Deadline.
