Despite his team’s struggles and lingering injuries, James made an impact when on the court this past season, averaging 30.3 points per game, along with 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists
James and the Lakers missed the playoffs after an underwhelming 33-49 season, in which James was limited to 56 games with various injuries.
Amid a pileup of losses in the season’s second half, James told reporters last month, ‘I hate losing. I feel like poop right now.’
Despite the team struggles and injuries, James made an impact when on the court, averaging 30.3 points per game, along with 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists.
He achieved another milestone in the down season in passing Karl Malone to become the league’s second-highest scorer in history with 37,062 career points. Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar remains in the top spot with 38,387 points.
James is slated to return to the Lakers for the last year of his contract in the 2022-2023 season, with an annual salary of around $44.5 million.
