    LeBron James plays in all 82 regular season games for the first time

    Apr 12, 2018

    MIAMI — No. 23 has played in all 82.

    When LeBron James took the floor for Cleveland against New York on Wednesday night (Thursday, Manila time), it represented a first for the four-time MVP — this is the first of his 15 seasons in which he's played in every regular-season game.

    James has ordinarily sat out games at the end of the season when the Cavs have a seed locked up. That didn't happen before the finale this year, so James played all the way to the finish. Cleveland can finish No. 3 or No. 4 in the East, depending on the outcome of its game against the Knicks and the Milwaukee at Philadelphia game.

    James' previous high for appearances was 81, back in the 2008-09 season. He says he's tried this season to "change the narrative" about what a player in his 15th season is capable of doing.

    James entered the finale averaging 27.7 points, 9.2 assists and 8.7 rebounds.
