As a youngster, LeBron James had no idea what it meant when his favorite players reached their prime or peak.
He just appreciated their ability.
"Growing up, you don't know what a prime is or someone in their prime or ceiling," James said. "You just watch them for their greatness and what they're doing."
James prefers the same when questions surface about what stage he is at in his career. A year after putting up what most called his best season, James is on pace for an even greater encore. With the exception of scoring, his numbers in all statistical categories are better than his 10-year career averages.
"I'm playing good basketball," said James, who is averaging 26.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 7.1 assists. "I'm at my highest peak. I don't know if I can continue to improve."
