With Udonis Haslem and Andre Iguoado both unsigned and unofficially retired, LeBron is the oldest active player in the NBA.

On Thursday, James was told about the oldest player in the league while at Lakers’ practice.

After being asked for his reaction to the feat, LeBron put his hands to his head and gave a brief fake scream before sprinting down the court.

Then, a clip was shown of James violently dunking on the other side of the court.

The viral video was shared on the NBA’s official account on X, formerly known as Twitter.

It has received 11 million views and counting as James commented on the post with a series of screaming emojis.

NBA fans had plenty to say after witnessing LeBron’s reaction.

One wrote: “Very funny.”

Another commented: “The oldest and the best.”

A third said: “Long live the king.”

While a fourth added: “He still got it.”

James turns 39 in December.

Last season, LeBron and the Lakers made it to the Western Conference Finals where they were swept by the eventual NBA champion Denver Nuggets.
