Lebron James Plays All 82 Games For The First Time In His NBA Career

Posted by

For the first time in his career, Lebron James has played all 82 games in one season — adding on yet another record for the 33-year-old basketball star.

James had never played every game in a regular season, because he usually sits out games at the end of the year to rest up for the playoffs.

The 4-time MVP players previous high record of games played was 81. The Cavs coach, Tyronn Lue said James wanting to play all 82 games says a lot.

“He wants to play,” Lue said. “I mean, it’s hard to play 82 games. I was in the league 11 years. Never had a chance to get to 82. Everything has to go absolutely right. He wants to play and I guess in his 15th year to get to 82, it really says a lot. It says a lot about him. But once he gets his 10 points, don’t be surprised if I yank him out. He might get mad, but I don’t care. I don’t care.”

James will finish the season leading in points and minutes played. He entered the finale averaging 27.7 points with career-highs in 9.2 assists and 8.7 rebounds .
