F - LAL
Expert NoteView More Notes
King James is now 38 years old, and the only two hints at his age are injury and that he was around long enough to become the NBA's all-time leading scorer in February 2023. At this point in his career, he should begin slowing down, but that isn't a bet I'd necessarily make with any confidence. The Lakers will for sure manage his workload, and it would be surprising if he surpassed 60 regular-season games. Those are the knocks against drafting him. The positives are that even with a nagging foot injury last season, he still averaged 28.9/8.3/6.8 and shot 50% from the floor. One of LeBron's strengths has always been to figure out what the team needs and fill that role. With Anthony Davis still kicking and new teammates like Gabe Vincent and Cam Reddish, LeBron's role will be whatever it needs to be. He will be a consistent fantasy contributor in the games he plays; his value is more of a late second-rounder, and the only real trick is to not overpay for the name or think he will provide young LeBron numbers. The beauty of it is that he doesn't have to in order to still be useful.
