LeBron James turned 35 on Monday.
After the Lakers’ 108-95 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday at the Staples Center, James wasn’t ready to hear reporters say “Happy Birthday.”
“If I were back home then I would be 35,” laughed James, who mentioned the three-hour time difference in Akron, Ohio. “I live in LA now Don’t count me out yet.”
James was asked to share his birthday wish and gave a hilarious answer.
(His answer is around the 6 minute mark in the video below.)

“I have no birthday wishes,” James said. “I’m not a birthday wish man.”
Reporter: Will you have a party?
“Yes,” James said. “I will have one of these, but this is not a wish, because I have to pay for it.”
The good news? The NBA star can definitely afford a luxurious party.
James is the richest active player in the league with a net worth of $ 480 million, according to celebritynetworth.com.
He was in good shape after 13 points, 13 assists and six rebounds in the win. He also participated in the 9000 Aid Club.
The four-year MVP and third NBA champion reached the milestone with a pass to Anthony Davis in the first quarter.
