LeBron is first Cav to win league scoring titlePosted by Inside Hoops
The Akron Beacon Journal (Brian Windhorst) reports: It became official Wednesday. LeBron James became the first player in franchise history to win the NBA scoring title by averaging exactly 30.0 points. It was not a surprise. He grabbed the scoring lead in November and held it the rest of the way. It was not the highest scoring average of his career, though. He averaged 31.4 points per game in 2005-06. By combining it with averages of 7.9 rebounds, which was a career high, and 7.2 assists, which tied a career high, James became just the third player in NBA history to average 30 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in league history. The other two were Oscar Robertson and Michael Jordan.
