Notes 
 Even at age 35, LeBron James was still able to finish with 25.3 points per game, 12th-most in the NBA. Even crazier was that he was able to develop as a passer on his way to a career-high 10.2 assists per game, most in the NBA. His blocks and steals have been trending downward over the last few seasons and that should continue as he heads into his 18th season, but his physicality will still likely land him in the top-25 rebounders yet again. All of that makes the future Hall of Famer for a safe but somewhat boring pick.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
If you only look at Muray's entire stat line from 2019-20, it looks like he may have plateaued as an above average point guard who averages 18.5 points and almost five assists per game. But we must not forget what he was able to do in the Orlando Bubble postseason, when Murray showcased his true superstar ability night-in-and-night-out. In 19 playoff games, he averaged 26.5 points (50.5 FG%), 4.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 3.3 3PM per game. Those averages resemble guys like Kyrie Irving and Devin Booker, who are bound to be top-15 fantasy assets in 2020-21. Murray may not be able to sustain such production for an entire season, but he certainly showed he's got the capability to put up some monster performances (two 50-point games in the 2019-20 playoffs). He could be a steal in the middle rounds of your fantasy draft.
Adam Koffler - FantasyPros
 He's arguably the greatest player of all time, but should you want the King on your fantasy team this season? He's heading into his 18th NBA season, fresh off winning a title just two months ago. While he averaged double-digit assists per game for the first time in his career, his scoring numbers were down with Anthony Davis in town and he continues to shoot under 70 percent from the charity stripe. While he's a relatively safe bet to average somewhere between 23-25 points, 7-8 rebounds, and 8-10 assists per game, James is bound to sit out a handful of contests this season with the Lakers' sights on back-to-back championships. While he's a solid back-end first round pick, I'd rather have young rising stars such as Trae Young, Nikola Jokic, and Jayson Tatum this season ahead of LeBron James.
