At 35 years of age, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Lebron James continues to prove that he is a terror on both ends of the floor. The King once again took a sip from the fountain of youth on Friday, completing a classic one-man defense-to-offense highlight against the Houston Rockets in their West semis series opener.

Rockets superstar Russell Westbrook taught he had an easy bucket coming his way after completing a steal in the third quarter. But as James has proved time and time again, no one is safe from his chase-down blocks.

The high-flying Russ tried to finish strong and get back at James for putting him in a poster in the first half.  But he was once again thwarted by the 3-time champion, who used both arms to deny Westbrook's shot attempt.

LeBron James wasn't done after completing the block, as he raced down court and took it upon himself to score. The Rockets' frontline was helpless, as James barrelled his way to the cup and finish with a tough shot in traffic. He even absorbed some contact from Robert Covington for good measure and completed the 3-point play.

Now on his 17th season in the league, James has continued to defy Father Time. The Lakers definitely need more of those from James to shrug off the pesky Rockets in the second round.
