LeBron James has been on a tear over the last four games recording three triple-doubles during that stretch. This has only further highlighted the dominant nature in which the 32-year-old Cavs forward has been playing with this season as he entered the game averaging 28.1 points on career highs with 57.8 percent shooting from the field and 41.1 percent from beyond the arc along with a career-best 9.1 assists and 8.3 rebounds per game.
The fact that he is having arguably his best individual campaign in his 15th season speaks volumes about the talent that James possesses. The manner in which he has continued to dominate the game has only further cemented his legacy.
Next on the all-time career triple-double list is Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain at 78 followed by reigning league MVP Russell Westbrook at 89 currently. It is another impressive feat on the illustrious career that LeBron James has put together at this point in time.
