Last season he ended the campaign averaging 30.3 points scored, 8.2 and 6.2 rebounds. He lead the Lakers in points and in minutes per game played. He also was top 3 in al the top categories. However for the first time in a long time it seems the injuries are catching up to him as he missed almost 30 games last season.

The King has proven time and time again that he has an amazing physique. During James' first years with the league in Cleveland he only missed 26 of a possible 574 games. However six of those games were only rest before more important games. His longest absence was during the 2007-08 season due to a sprained left index finger. Cleveland had a record 10-16 in the games James missed, but it didn't affect in the seasons result.
