LeBron James coasted to a triple-double Tuesday night against the New York Knicks after the Cleveland Cavaliers received their championship rings. Following the 117-88 blowout, James gushed about how great he feels. 

According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, James, 31, feels like a teenager again. The 19-point, 11-rebound, 14-assist performance turned the back the hands of time really quick, and James was moving with such explosiveness throughout the entirety of the game–even watching, you noticed he looks refreshed and rejuvenated.

I feel great. I feel great, man. I feel better than I felt at 19. Nineteen, I didn’t know my body. I didn’t know that … you can do things at 19 that you obviously can’t do at 31, but as far as being in shape and putting in all the training I put in during the season, I feel like I picked up right where I left off. I mean, I’m in a good groove so far.

All of that, including his six dunks, got accomplished in just 32 minutes.

Over the course of his career, James has played over 38,000 regular season minutes, 8,383 playoff minutes, and has made three trips to the Olympics. It’s safe to say that his mileage is excessive. LeBron, however, is a freak of nature and almost never displays any fatigue.

It might catch up to him someday, and the Cavaliers are making it a point to reduce his workload and, possibly, have him play his fewest career minutes. The only way that’ll happen, though, is if Kyrie Irving can step up, and Tuesday night was a great sign.

Uncle Drew erupted for 29 points in the season opener, and 19 of them came in the third quarter. He was dazzling and put on a show worthy of a comparison to his Finals performance.

After James’ scintillating outing, coach Tyronn Lue was puzzled as to how LeBron could feel so young, “Maybe he’s getting younger: Benjamin Button. I don’t know. Who knows?”

James has officially entered his 14th season after last night, and while he still has a handful of years left, his window to capture another MVP trophy is closing, and it remains to be seen how long he can sustain this level of play. One thing is for certain: it’ll be wildly entering if he continues to feel 19 all season long.
