LeBron James is off to his best start ever in the playoffs

LeBron James is still pretty good at basketball. In fact, at age 32, James may be better than ever in the playoffs at an age when most star players are starting to decline.

Through the first two rounds of the playoffs, LeBron and his Merry Cavs are 8-0 and have already proved the doubters wrong who felt they wouldn’t be able to “flip the switch” this postseason. And most of that is because of the improved play of LeBron.

James is averaging 34.4 points per game through the first two rounds, but it goes beyond that. If we sum up the five most notable counting stats (points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks), LeBron is averaging 54.1 per game. That is 11.6 more than the first two rounds a year ago and 2.1 more than his previous best, the first two rounds of the 2009 playoffs.
