KD: 'Inspiring to see' LeBron dominating at 38 years old
Warning: Story contains coarse language
Kevin Durant is among those watching in awe as LeBron James continues to dominate the NBA in his 20th season.
Durant explained on the latest episode of "The ETCs Podcast" that while his competitive side makes him believe he can also accomplish what James has done, the significance of it isn't lost on him.
"It's inspiring to see," the Brooklyn Nets star said. "As a competitor, it's like, man fuck that, I can do that shit too. But then it's like, dang, he's in Year 20. He's 38 years old.
"He goes through so much off the floor as just a man in general, with a family. He's got so many responsibilities. Still love the game. Still getting up, playing back-to-backs and shit. Still playing 40 minutes. It's like, man, salute to that."
James is averaging 30.2 points per game this season - the fourth-highest scoring average of his career - and is now just 117 points away from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA's all-time scoring leader.
Durant currently sits 14th on the scoring list, more than 10,000 points back of the all-time mark. James recently stated that he could see Durant overtaking him on the list one day, noting that he has the "key ingredients" to break the record.
