  • LeBron James: Tom Brady and I are one in the same LeBron James: Tom Brady and I are one in the same

    LeBron James insists he has no plans to call time on his NBA career, comparing himself to New England Patriots great Tom Brady.

    James was the star of the show for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Sacramento Kings on Friday, scoring 29 points and providing 11 assists in a 99-97 victory.

    Prior to the encounter at the Staples Center, the 34-year-old - a 15-time All Star and a three-time NBA champion - was asked if retirement had crossed his mind.

    However, James dismissed the suggestion, likening himself to NFL star Brady, who is still going strong at the age of 42 and holds the record for the most number of Super Bowl wins with six.

    "I'm not at the conclusion of my story," James explained to reporters.

    "So no, not the way I feel right now. Me and Tom Brady are one in the same. We're going to play until we can't walk no more."

    Following James' comments, Brady responded on his official Twitter account, tagging the Lakers star.

    "I'm playing until I can't dunk anymore!" The quarterback tweeted.

    James responded in kind: "Well I'm playing until I can't throw TD [touchdown] passes anymore!"

    Kemba Walker has claimed his will to win is the reason for his streak of tallying up crucial points in fourth quarters this season.

    Walker came back on from the bench to score a sublime three-pointer as the Boston Celtics made it 10 successive wins in NBA with a 105-100 win over the Golden State Warriors.

    The three-time All Star netted 20 points in total on Friday, with five rebounds and five assists, while he has a 49.1 per cent shot accuracy in fourth quarters and 53.6 per cent of his three-pointers have come in the final stage of games.

    "I just want to win so bad, I just will those shots in a lot of the time," Walker told reporters when asked about his fourth-quarter form.

    "I just want to win and when it's winning time, my competitive nature just increases in those kinds of situations.

    "I make 500 [three-pointers] the night before the game. I trust in my work. That's it. And the reason I do that is because if I am having an off night, I know it's an off night, I know it's not because I'm not working.

    "My first halves haven't really been too great. I just try my best to just stay positive, and just continue to shoot.

    "Fourth quarter, it's just winning time."

    The Celtics lead the way in the Eastern Conference with a 10-1 record this season.
