At the youngest and oldest ages in league history, LeBron James achieved the incredible milestone of being named to the All-NBA team, demonstrating his ability to surpass the limitations of athletic longevity. During the 2023–24 NBA season, LeBron, then 39 years old, was selected for the 20th time to the All–NBA Third Team. His previous distinction as the youngest player to be named to an All-NBA team at the age of 20 is reinforced by this accomplishment.

In his second season in the league, LeBron started his path to being selected for the first All-NBA team. He averaged 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 2.2 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game when he was 20 years old.

He made 35.1% of his three-pointers and 47.2% of his field goals. He was selected for an All-Star game and placed on the All-NBA Second Team as a result of his performance. The Cleveland Cavaliers, who had a 42-40 record and finished ninth in the Eastern Conference, missed the playoffs because there was no play-in tournament in place at the time, despite his outstanding play.

After 19 years, LeBron is still a formidable force in the NBA, having entered his 21st season. At 39, he shot 41.0% from beyond the arc and 54.0% from the field, averaging 25.7 points, 8.3 assists, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game.

He was selected as an All-Star for the 20th time in a row and was named to the All-NBA Third Team due to his continuous excellence. The Lakers had a 47-35 record at the end of the regular season, which gave them the seventh seed in the play-in tournament. However, they lost five games to the Denver Nuggets in the opening round of the playoffs.
