Attention, Grinnell College basketball office: LeBron James wants the tape from Jack Taylor's record-setting scoring spree.
Or as ''King James'' is now calling Taylor, ''Sir Jack.''
The NBA champion Miami Heat took plenty of notice of Taylor in their shootaround practice Wednesday morning, one day after the Grinnell guard scored a record 138 points in only 36 minutes of playing time against Faith Baptist Bible In Grinnell, Iowa. The Heat called their intern - the day's designated shooter during a defensive drill for the team - ''Taylor'' all morning during practice, and after the session, James was among those weighing in on the significance of the feat.
''It's unbelievable, honestly,'' James said. ''I would like to see the game. I want to see the game.''
Hard to believe, but after one record shooting night, a three-time NBA MVP like James was putting Taylor in the same breath as all-time...
