LeBron James is 31 years old and in the midst of his 13th professional season. He’s made a record five consecutive trips to the NBA Finals, honors his longstanding commitment to USA Basketball every summer, and still shoulders as much responsibility as any other player in the league.

It’s only natural, basically, that James would feel all that wear and tear with the stretch run of 2015-16 finally nearing. As the four-time MVP told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin on Wednesday, though, he’s apparently far fresher today than he was this time last season.

“Last year I was banged up. It’s not a mindset, it’s just reality. This year I feel 10 times better than I did last year. So that’s the mindset.”
