LeBron James said on Wednesday that he is appreciative of staying healthy and credited the good fortune on pushing himself in the offseason.
"I don't have a key," James said. "I've been fortunate to be healthy. I try to do everything I can as far as strength and conditioning to stay above the curve, I guess. I don't have an answer for it.
"We all know Father Time, whatever the case may be, is undefeated. But you just try to slow it down, I guess."
James and Norris Cole are the only Miami Heat players to appear in all 28 games this season.
"For me, I try to take care of everything I can off the court in the offseason, so when I get into the season, I can just go full steam," James said. "When I do have a bump in the road I'm able to come back from it a little faster than anyone else would or I would, because I've always been able to keep my body right.
"But I don't have a success story or a key to it. I just try to prepare the best that I can."
