CLEVELAND, Ohio — LeBron James, or Benjamin Button, as Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue called him recently, continues to make highlight-reel plays that defy his age.
James, 31 and in his 14th NBA season, recorded six slams in the Cavaliers’ home opener. He continued the dunkfest on Saturday night, victimizing Orlando Magic 7-footer Nikola Vucevic.

Despite being fouled on the play, James powered through a helpless Vucevic, getting fouled on the play and going to the free throw line where he capped the three-point play that caused the crowd to erupt.
“I feel great man,” James said recently. “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.”
