LeBron James was “surprised” when he learned that he was older than his opponent’s coach on the day he reached the 39,000 point mark

In fact, in the 2023-24 season, there will be not one but three head coaches working in the American professional basketball league who are younger than LeBron James.

In terms of age and years of playing in the NBA, LeBron James is really old. He is about to turn 39 at the end of December and has been competing continuously since 2003 until now.

But when looking at his performance and statistics, perhaps no one would think that the Los Angeles Lakers superstar is playing the 21st season of his basketball career.


LeBron James is still bombarding the NBA in his 21st year of competition, preparing to turn 39 years old

LeBron James is scoring 25.7 points with 8.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game. His average time on the court is nearly 34 minutes, an unbelievably high number compared to other players who have reached their 21st season playing in the NBA.

Last week, James just created a historic milestone with his 39,000th score at Regular Season, continuing to break the all-time scoring record that he himself holds.

“Being the first to conquer something always feels special. This tournament has many excellent scoring players and legends, I feel very honored with this milestone,” said the Lakers superstar.

Putting aside the special achievements that LeBron James just conquered, the star born in 1984 after the match had a short but quite humorous exchange with reporters.

Right at the end of sharing his thoughts on reaching the 39,000 point mark, LeBron was “gently reminded” of how old he is in the NBA. More specifically, a reporter pointed out that Utah head coach Will Hardy Jazz is 4 years younger than James.

“Who am I older than?”, LeBron asked in disbelief and then quickly replied “older than the coach over there? Oh my god, oh my god…”

As of the time this article was written, there are a total of 3 current head coaches who are younger than LeBron James (born December 1984). This list includes:

– Coach Will Hardy (Utah Jazz): 34 years old

– Coach Joe Mazzulla (Boston Celtics): 34 years old

– Coach Mark Daigneault (Oklahoma City Thunder): 37 years old

The person mentioned in the above conversation is Will Hardy, the coach who was just appointed by the Utah Jazz to the captain’s chair before the 2023-24 season. Mr. Hardy and Joe Mazzulla of the Boston Celtics are the two youngest coaches in the tournament.

Today, November 24, the NBA takes a 1-day break from competition on the occasion of Thanksgiving, allowing employees of the entire league to spend this time with their families.

The matches will return on November 25 with 10 consecutive matches within the NBA In-Season Tournament, lasting from 2:30 a.m. until about 1:00 p.m.
