I think LeBron can still get downhill, still dunk on people at age 40. But maybe not do it as often as now or certainly a couple of years ago.
So he can maintain all-NBA/MVP candidate level play for the rest of his contract.
All barring catastrophic injuries of course.
Remember even after Kobe's injury, his main complaint was his body overall wasn't holding up. He said that at age 36 so Lebron is some mutant.
KCP and Kuzma are NBA players, not sure they are #3 and #4 on a title team. Some people like KAT on a super-max contracts ... what some people think doesn't make me agree
The issue with LeBron is not how he's going to play when he's healthy. The issue is that to get to his normal level of play he's got to use up more of his margin, and that makes little niggling injuries more likely to happen and they will take longer to heal. LeBron is playing injured every game, he just doesn't talk about it much. That bubble title was huge for his health. Even without a catastrophic injury he's clearly on the way down already. Still great, but the range is a lot smaller than it once was.
