Default Is LeBron the Barry Bonds of the NBA?

He is 33 years old and getting better as he ages. I think he has the same secret formula that Bonds used.

He's not as fast as he was in 2016 nor can he get up as high.

Could it be his IQ for the game has gotten better and he's a better shooter.


Lebron can shoot the ball now and still has enough juice to get to the rack. He was pretty strong as an 18 year old so at 33, he's even stronger. He probably has the best functional strength in the NBA which is a testament to why he doesn't suffer serious injuries.

I believe all athletes take something that could be considered "Performance enhancing" I tend to think Lebron is just 75% a freak of nature naturally.

Barry Bonds got significantly stronger late in his career with PEDs. How has James become more athletic?

Bonds underwent a very visible physical change as he grew larger from roids.

LeBron is just way smarter now than as a young guy. Way slower than were he was (remember, he was the fastest player in the NBA for years). He still has elite athleticism, just not GOAT athleticism.

Just like MJ, his game evolved.

Yep. Absolutely no connection or link to any PED's ever

But random people on the internet think he is using. Must have been using since his rookie year as he essentially never gets injured.

You guys need to just face facts, he is more then a once in a generation athlete...might be the GOAT athlete

Plus, Lebron's workouts are more about ankle and core stability than anyone else. Plus he's just naturally a strong guy.

Some guys have to work super hard to be strong and then you have guys like Lebron, Bo, Adrian peterson who are naturally functionally strong guys.

Is lebron slower than when he was in 2003? Certainly, but I don't think many on here realize just how much ground he covers still and how fast he covers it until you see him play in person, and up close. He can cover the court in just 9 strides. Both he and Bonds are so filled with HGH and roids that you could probably feed a small country on how much gear they've used during their career.
