He's also one of the greatest passers of all time, and gets his teammates involved *a lot*. If you're on his team, you better be able to knock down a 3.
But that's also why his teams struggle when he sits. They get so used to him spoon feeding them shots they struggle to create for themselves when he's out. Plus, that style of offense where everything runs through him is much easier to defend. That's pretty much the book on Cleveland. Let LeBron score his 30 points and stay home on his team mates. That's why after every game his numbers look so good and theirs looks so bad.

I don't see Lebron retiring. He is still flying up the all-time lists and playing an a 1st team all-nba level.

Since he doesn't have 6 of 6 in the finals or 9 championship rings etc....finishing his career #1 in points etc. would be strong statements.

He's 3k behind Kobe, 6k Malone, 7.7k behind Kareem and he's still putting up around 2k points a year.
He's currently #7 and will pass #4-6 pretty soon.

Age is a b*tch however and it can change in an instant but Lebron only needs another 2-3 good years and after that could play a lesser role for 2-3 years at 1k points per year to take the lead.
