LeBron James was in a playful mood following the Los Angeles Lakers victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday, but he also had a serious message. James said he constantly reminds himself of why he's still playing.

"Just trying to push the limit," the Lakers star said. "See how far I can take this thing. I don't know. I mean, it's me vs. Father Time."

James said he enjoys the competition with players like Dillon Brooks, adding that "Those young guys, they get me going. So, I need that."
