While nursing a strained groin, LeBron James will watch his Los Angeles Lakers host the Sacramento Kings from bench tonight, giving him the night off on his 34th birthday. However, the King hasn't always been able to kick back and celebrate.

In seven career birthday games, James has averaged 32.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game. His birthday career-high came against the Hawks in 2009, when he went off for 48 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists.

Unfortunately, James won't be adding to those statistics tonight, but here's a look back at all of his December 30 games and the sneakers he wore in each.
