Remember the 1990s and early 2000s when the biggest question on nearly every NBA fan and pundit’s mind was: Who is the next Michael Jordan? It seems that LeBron James still doesn’t care for the comparison to the widely regarded “best NBA player of all time.” Four days before Jordan’s 50th birthday, James tweeted “I’m not MJ, I’m LJ.” James proved that on Tuesday night by becoming the first player in NBA history to score 30 points while hitting at least 60 percent of his shots in six consecutive games. James scored 30 points and hit 11 of 15 shots against the Trail Blazers. Adrian Dantley and Moses Malone held the previous record of five straight. It’s tough to pick out his most impressive performance during the streak, but it comes down to two games. On Feb. 4, James hit 13 of 14 shots against Charlotte while scoring 31 points with eight rebounds and eight assists. On Feb. 8, James scored 30 points while taking just 11 shots. He hit nine of those attempts while adding five boards and six dimes. After finally capturing an NBA title in 2012, James can begin to ascend up the ranks of best players in league history. He offers one of the most complete and unique skill sets the NBA will ever see. Check out James’ tweet below. I'm not MJ, I'm LJ— LeBron James (@KingJames) February 13, 2013
