he'd fit right in, but less ft attempts and less ticky tack touch foul bailouts on the perimeter.

so something like 25, 6 and 7 at the most.

LMAO
You mean in the same era when teams where scoring 120 points on average per game?

It's not particularly difficult to perform the calculations to adjust to league averages to see what his numbers would look like in the '80s.

I'd be guessing right around the same averages he gets now.

LeBron doesn't have the mentality to play in the 80s. He'd get hacked one time and f*cking start bawling.

Lebron vs the 80's Bullets = 88 points 15rebs 20 ast

Lebron vs Bird = 99PPG

Wilt Chamberlain numbers, but with 10+ assists.

Though the question here is what to do with three-pointers. If you adjust to league averages, then current players would shoot threes both less frequently and at a lower percentage if you translate them to the 80's. If you keep their three-point shooting at the current rate, then their efficiency increases when you transplant the numbers.

Marques Johnson, Dominique Wilkins, Xavier Mcdaniel, Bernard King, Doctor J, Worthy, Bird, Mark Aguirre and Bobby Jones would all defensively put Lebron through hell.
