In the first game of the 2020-21 NBA season, LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers didn’t waste time by attacking the ring for his first slam dunk.

Peep the clip below to witness the first of many James slam dunks for the season. Note that James is in his 18th year in the league. He’ll turn 36 on Dec. 30.

Whether you’re a fan or a hater, it’s impossible not to be impressed by the four-time champ’s incredible stamina over the course of his illustrious NBA career. Yes, he has more losses than wins in the NBA Finals. But getting there almost every season is a superhuman achievement that perhaps only James can do.

James’ current and former teammates have shared how dedicated he is to taking care of his body. According to them, James has his own set of people who help him be in tip-top shape. He has a very strict routine that he follows day in and day out without fail.

This extreme discipline has certainly worked its magic. At 35-years-old, NBA players — even those considered the best to ever do it — are already on the decline. Most of them are even relegated to a bench role.

In the offseason, James signed a two-year extension. This means that we’ll see more of LeBron James as he’s well within his late 30s. There are no guarantees if James remains in his superhuman form by then. But given his dedication to the game, there’s a pretty good chance we’ll see a slam or two from one of the greatest to play the game.
