Lebron James is fresh off two huge victories in the last week over Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers and Dwayne Wade’s Miami Heat, further cementing his claim to the title of NBA’s Best Player – and perhaps the NBA’s best athlete.   The Cavs took down the Lakers last Thursday behind Lebron’s 37 effort and then went wire to wire with the Heat Monday night as James threw in 32 points and added a key steal and score in the game’s closing seconds.

King James is the NBA’s leading score and currently has his Cavaliers on a hot streak.  As winners of 5 straight Cleveland currently owns the NBA’s best record.  There is no truth to the rumor that Lebron is superhuman, but he is certainly impressive and is arguably the most athletic person in the world right now.

Here is the workout program James uses to prepare for the NBA season, courtesy of Men’s Health.
