LeBron James rings in 38th birthday with stunning 47-point performance vs Hawks

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James recently turned 38 on December 30 as he played the Atlanta Hawks at State Farm Arena. To celebrate his birthday, the legend delivered a mind-blowing performance, helping his team win the last game of the year.

The Lakers defeated the Hawks 130-121 to earn their 15th victory of the season. After a weak start in the first quarter, LeBron James turned on his destroyer mood and stole the game single-handedly. With this win, they are still the 13th seed in the Western Conference.

How marvelous was Lebron James’ performance on his birthday?

The Lakers have struggled all season and are still out of the playoff picture. Despite the frequent injuries, personal issues, and suspensions of key players, James is the only notable figure who keeps fans hopeful.

Last night he didn’t disappoint us, scoring a season-high of 47 points with 10 rebounds and nine assists. His play indicates an all-around balanced dominance over the hardwood (66.7% field goal, 66.7% three-pointer, and 77.8% free throw completion rate).

What did LeBron James say after the game?

One can obviously say this amazing performance was a treat to his fans on his birthday. King James also revealed the secret behind his top-notch form at this age. “Making sure my body stays fresh, but my mind more importantly,” James said. “As long as I keep my mind fresh, then my body will follow what it may. It’s always good to come out here with my teammates. They worked their butts off tonight.”

We feel truly lucky to observe this great legend still performing, entertaining, and pulling his team without any excuse of a publicity stunt. This mentality, combined with his goat-level court maneuvering ability, propelled him to the throne of the NBA. We at SportsZion wish Lebron a happy birthday, a happy new year, and good luck in his future.
