At the age of 33, LeBron James is still performing at the top of his game, and there are no signs that will change anytime soon. He continues to defy logic.
He recalled advice provided to him by a friend when he was just 13 years old during a recent interview: work hard, play hard, and stretch.
James is adamant that this is one of the primary reasons he is still able to maintain the highest possible physical condition in his body. Yet another factor is how strictly he adheres to his in-season diet. The Lakers player firmly believes that if he gives his body the best, he will be able to extract the best performance out of it.
According to LeBron, “I’ve been pretty consistent throughout this process” on The Time Ferris Show. Since I’ve always hoped to have a successful career, I’ve remained quite clean.
We didn’t consume artificial sweeteners, fried meals, or drinks. Throughout the season, we refrain from eating fried foods. What does a four-time MVP consume to sustain his 6′ 8″ and 18-stone frame on any given gameday, then?
I had a gluten-free pancake with berries and an egg white omelette with smoked salmon for breakfast, he continued.
‘I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich immediately before the (Orlando Magic) game for lunch. I also had whole-wheat spaghetti, salmon, and vegetables.
I had sliced apples with almond butter on top at halftime. I drank the protein shake that James’ trainer Mike Mancias provided me immediately following the game.
Later, for supper, I had chicken parmesan with a great bottle of Cabernet and a rocket salad.
The diminutive forward admitted to being somewhat of a sommelier and joked that he has become fond of red wine over the years. He also shared some of his own favorites.
I love Bordeaux a lot, James declared. There are some Cabs that I also adore. As we progress, we encounter wines of a greater caliber, such as Screaming Eagle, Quintarelli, Rothschild, and Latour. If I told you about my home’s full cellar, we would be sitting here all day.
So it’s appropriate that James’s career seems to be maturing similarly to one of the exquisite wines he enjoys so much.
With precisely three weeks left in the regular season and three weeks having passed since LeBron James sustained a tendon ιnjury in his right foot, Los Angeles Lakers coach Darvin Harris provided the most upbeat report on James’ condition to date.
Before the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Orlando Magic 111-105 on Sunday, Ham said, “We expect him coming back at some time [this season].
James, 38, suffered a foot ιnjury on February 26 during the Lakers’ 111-108 comeback win over the Dallas Mavericks. James’ foot will likely be reevaluated by Lakers medical personnel later this week, possibly as early as Thursday, to see how his rehabilitation program is doing.
Los Angeles has a 6-5 record when James is out. With 10 games left, they are tied for eighth in the Western Conference with a record of 35-37.
Ham stated, “I think Bron’s absence has exposed that we have a variety of weapons who are extremely competent players on both sides of the ball who can assist us reach the goal that we’re striving to attain. “And he’s just going to add to it when he gets back.”
To illustrate Ham’s point, L.A. has had five different players in the past 10 games score 24 points or more, including Anthony Davis, D’Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, Dennis Schroder, and Malik Beasley, without James’ team-leading 29.5 points per game average on the court.
In New Orleans on Wednesday, James took part in his first on-court activity—stand-still free throws—after taking off the walking boot he had previously worn to stabilize his foot.
Dennis Schroder, the point guard for the Lakers, claimed that James has increased his training in preparation for a comeback.
He works on his body three times a day to get back, Schroder remarked on Friday. “With this team, I believe we have a great chance here.”
