LeBron James finished with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in Saturday's win against the Jazz for his 60th-career triple-double.
LeBron moves into sixth place on the NBA's all-time triple-doubles list, as he broke a tie with former Boston Celtics standout Larry Bird. Next up in LeBron's crosshairs will be Wilt Chamberlain (78). He said earlier this week that he is feeling better than at any point in his career and that's best news for the rest of the NBA.

Speaking with reporters on Saturday, LeBron James said: "This is the best I've felt in my career."

Instead of slowing down in his 15th NBA season, LeBron is somehow still playing at an incredibly high level. He is currently averaging 28.1 points, 9.1 assists, 8.3 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks. "This is my 15th year, but this is one of the best years I've had as far as how I feel and I want to continue that. I want to kind of try to break the mold for the next generation," said King James.

LeBron James hit 8-of-18 shots, a 3-pointer and 8-of-12 free throws on his way to 25 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes of Thursday's 121-112 win over the Lakers.

This was LeBron's 59th career triple-double, tying him with Larry Bird for No. 6 all time. LeBron sure doesn't look like he's been in the league for 15 seasons and might finish this one with the best numbers of his career.

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, LeBron James joining the Lakers this summer would be a "longshot."

It's been well documented that the Lakers will pursue both LeBron and Paul George this summer and they will have the cap space to do so. However, LeBron's free agency plans are still a mystery and he said before the season that he "won't ever cheat my teammates or cheat the franchise ... by talking about free agency all year long." Regardless, expect LeBron to put on a show vs. the Lakers on Thursday night.

LeBron James torched the Hawks for 25 points and tied his career high with 17 assists as the Cavaliers trounced the Hawks 123-114 on Tuesday.

The game wasn't nearly as close as the final score indicates and James had his way with Atlanta, although several Hawks had pretty big nights too. LeBron hit 11-of-13 shots, two 3-pointers, and added seven rebounds and two steals to his ridiculous stat line. James Harden made a strong move in the MVP race on Monday night, but LeBron may have countered it tonight.

Sam Amick of USA Today is hearing that Houston could be a possible destination for LeBron James this summer.

James is expected to opt out of the final year of his contract, but he previously said that he would not discuss his free agency until after the season. Rockets insiders have a "strong belief" that they’ll have a chance to land James in free agency according to Amick, and rival executives apparently feel the same way. This is a fun rumor, but that's all it is for now.

LeBron James finished with 30 points, 13 assists and 13 rebounds across 39 minutes in Saturday's win against the 76ers, and he also tweaked his hamstring late in the win.

James was grabbing his hamstring with 2:35 left in regulation, but he told head coach Tyronn Lue, "I'm all right." He finished the game with his 58th-career triple-double and was a huge reason, like usual, why the Cavaliers were able to hold off the ascending 76ers despite playing without Kevin Love. The injury is something to watch going forward. The good is that the team doesn't face a back-to-back situation until next Saturday and Sunday.
Dec 9 - 10:56 PM

LeBron James posted 29 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists across 39 minutes Friday night in a 106-102 loss at Indiana.

LeBron did everything in his power to get his team over the hump but they just came up short. He also chipped in with two blocked shots and a steal, hitting 12-of-22 from the floor. LeBron is averaging 31.0 points, 9.5 assists and 8.0 rebounds per game in two meetings with Indiana this season. These rivals will meet again Jan. 12 in Indianapolis and Jan. 26 in Cleveland.
Dec 8 - 10:12 PM

LeBron James hit 12-of-18 FGs with five 3-pointers to finish Wednesday's game with 32 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals, two blocks and seven turnovers in 41 minutes.

LeBron took over this game and hit a dagger 3-pointer to help the Cavs tie a franchise record with their 13th consecutive victory. Just how clutch has he been this season? Per Synergy Sports, in the fourth quarter this season LeBron is shooting 82% at the rim, with an eFG% of 59% on jump shots within the half-court offense. He's a man on a mission, and continues to vie the No. 1 spot in fantasy basketball this season.
Dec 6 - 10:04 PM

LeBron James dominated against the Grizzlies during a 116-111 win on Saturday, scoring 34 points with two rebounds, 12 assists, one block and five turnovers in 39 minutes.

He went into G.O.A.T. mode late with the Cavs' final 13 points to win this close game. James was just too much both as a scorer with a whopping four and-one buckets, and as a passer with all of his assists either leading to a shot in the paint or a 3-pointer. The Cavs are up to an 11-game winning streak and now have a 1.0 lead over the Raptors for the No. 2 seed -- they're 3.5 behind Boston. James and the Cavs get a four-game week starting in Chicago on Monday, so LeBron's fantasy owners have a big leg up in weekly fantasy matchups.
Dec 2 - 10:36 PM

LeBron James scored 24 points on Thursday vs. the Hawks, leading the Cavaliers to their 10th straight win.

LeBron also made a bit of history, moving past Alex English for No. 10 on the all-time field goals made list. He did a great job getting his teammates involved tonight and picked his shots carefully, hitting 8-of-11 shots and 5-of-7 free throws with 12 assists, six rebounds, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers. With the Grizzlies, Bulls and Kings next up on the schedule, the Cavs will have a great chance to gain some ground on the Celtics and Pistons.
Nov 30 - 10:32 PM

LeBron James was ejected for the first time in his career in the third quarter of Tuesday's game vs. the Heat for complaining to the refs.

He thought he was fouled by Dion Waiters and let the ref have it. He was ejected with two minutes left in the third, but he probably wasn't going to play in the fourth quarter anyways due to the lopsided score. His night finished with 21 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, one block, five steals, one triple and two turnovers.
Nov 28 - 8:53 PM

LeBron James hit 12-of-22 shots and three 3-pointers for 30 points, 13 rebounds and six assists in 31 minutes of Monday's 113-91 win over the Sixers.

LeBron didn't have any blocks or steals, but only committed three turnovers and the streaking Cavs have now won eight games in a row. He also didn't commit a single foul tonight and made 3-of-4 free throws. The Cavs get the Heat on Tuesday night, and while it's a revenge opportunity for LeBron, it's also the second night of a back-to-back, so just make sure he's good to go before deploying him. LeBron has yet to get a night off this season, which means it could be coming on Tuesday night.
Nov 27 - 9:39 PM

LeBron James triple-doubled in a 100-99 win over the Hornets on Friday, racking up 27 points with 16 rebounds, 13 assists, three blocks and three triples in 39 minutes.

That's his second triple-double of the season and the 57th of his career. The Cavaliers still have the worst defensive rating in the NBA and this was just their fourth game of the season holding their opponent under 100 points, but at least they're moving up the standings with seven straight wins after a rough start to the campaign. James hit 10-of-20 shots in the win, but took a step back from the line where he hit just 4-of-7 free throws -- he was hitting 78.2% of his freebies prior to Friday.
Nov 24 - 10:52 PM

LeBron James racked up 33 points (11-of-17 FGs, 7-of-9 FTs), six rebounds, five assists, four 3-pointers and two steals in 33 minutes vs. Brooklyn on Wednesday.

He exited briefly after a collision and needed some stitches for a facial laceration, but it's nothing to worry about. The good news is that he made it out of the game without tweaking an ankle tonight, and Cleveland claimed a six-game win streak with the victory. LeBron also became the 26th player in NBA history with at least 15,000 made three-pointers -- there's not much the King can't do.
