LeBron James can still surprise us.
One of the single-greatest players to ever grace the hardwood has done just about all you can do over the last nine years. He's switched teams, won championships, won MVPs, set records, turned three-point shooting woes into an undeniable strength and taken the phrase "volume efficiency" to new heights.
And he's not done.
Going on 29, LeBron isn't on the verge of retiring—not even to play Minor League Baseball. He's still traversing the prime of his career and somehow getting better.
“I want to be the greatest player of all time,” LeBron said, per ESPN's Tom Haberstroh. “It’s that simple. But I’m far from that.”
If becoming the greatest of all time remains his goal and he's still "far from" making it happen, that, in a nutshell, means the best has yet to come.
As far as chilling concepts go, it doesn't get scarier or more thrilling than being able to acknowledge the world's most talented player still has some scores to settle.
