LeBron James has been dominating the NBA for more than 20 years now, and instead of regressing like your average basketball player, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar is seemingly adding more feathers to his cap.
Throughout his NBA career, James has often been criticized due to his inability to score consistently from the three-point line.
However, since joining the Los Angeles Lakers, James has been slowly but surely improving his shooting from deep.
A perfect example of it is the fact that James is shooting better from the three-point line than none other than Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, as revealed via Lakers Daily on Twitter.

As mentioned in the above tweet, James is shooting an impressive 41.3% from downtown this season.
On the other hand, Curry, who is widely regarded as the best shooter of all time, is shooting 41.0% from the three-point line.
Although a 0.3% difference may not seem like a huge deal to most fans, the value balloons up when considering that James is just a 34.6% career shooter from downtown.
As for Curry, he has shot a brilliant 42.7% from the three-point line during his time in the NBA.
Keeping that in mind, James has seemingly gotten better from long-distance shooting despite playing the 21st season of his NBA career.
Curry, on the other hand, is showing minor signs of decline in his 15th NBA season.
At the end of the day, most fans are wondering whether James can maintain his sensational three-point shooting for the rest of the season or not.
