LeBron James is having a history making season. He’s accomplishing things that we’ve never seen before as basketball fans. For an NBA record six games, LeBron has scored 30 or more on 60% shooting. There was a four game stretch during this same time frame that LeBron was at 75% shooting. Let that marinate for a second.
Check out a few highlights from Heat vs. Blazers
LeBron had this to say following the game:
“I’m at a loss for words,” James said in a televised postgame interview. “Like I say over and over, I know the history of the game. I know how many unbelievable players who came through the ranks, who paved the way for me and my teammates. And for me to be in the record books by myself with such a stat — any stat — it’s big-time.”
Of course the inevitable comparison to Michael Jordan are back. I really wish we could leave that alone and move beyond that. What happened for Michael at that particular time can’t happen again. Much like what Bill Russell accomplished, 11 NBA title,s won’t be duplicated. MJ’s greatest stretLet King James cook! He’s creating his own legacy that should be respected in it’s own right. LeBron agrees with me too. Check his Tweet:
I’m not MJ, I’m LJ
