Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James told reporters that he is getting better with age after helping his team to a 129-107 win over the Phoenix Suns.

James put up 28 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists to record his 14th triple-double of the season, a new personal record for one season.

When asked afterwards about his performance James said: "You can just say I'm like fine wine, I get better with age. That's what it says."

It was put to James that one of the reasons that his statistics keep rising is because the league is played at a faster pace which means more possession for teams.

"More possessions, my ass. What are you talking about?" James retorted.

"I'm getting better with age, that's what it's saying."
