Default Lebron #10 in apg

The only player in the top 20 who isn't a point guard. And the only one in the top 30 who isn't a guard. So basically there are only 9 pg's who do a better job at actually being point guards.

I find it weird that elite point guards like Deron only averages 1 apg more than Lebron and Chris Paul who's the best in the league only averages 2 apg more.

1 Rajon Rondo , BOS
2 Chris Paul , LAC
3 Jrue Holiday , PHI
4 Greivis Vasquez , NOH
5 Russell Westbrook , OKC
6 Deron Williams , BKN
7 Jose Calderon , TOR
8 Tony Parker , SAS
9 Ty Lawson , DEN
10 LeBron James , MIA

Oh, and while doing that, he also has the time to be top 20 in rebounds and top 5 in points.

Enjoy it folks, you're witnessing a rare player. Tell your grand kids you saw Lebron and that you were a fanboy/hater/whatever.

He is basically the point guard of the Heat. He is running the offense. He can't play off the ball efficiently. And he actually had more ast in 10 with 8.6.

While I agree that he is a rare player, no question, but he needs the ball to be effective than playing off the ball.

Even though that's amazing and Bron's a great passer this is also on the money:

He could get more. He has the ball in his hands more than just about any player in the league. Still impressive though.

He can do both. I've seen it many times this season.

You act like he's natural PG which he isn't.

He's a forward first, not a PG. Playmaker second.

Didn't he get drafted as a PG?

He could set up for the post then decide whatever he wants to pass if the double teams comes or take his opponent. But he mainly has the ball in his hands more often than not. He isn't really a Paul Pierce or a Durant off the ball. He can't really come off of screens and do a catch and shoot, cut to the basket, or get open while off the ball isn't in his hands. At least I haven't seen him do it often enough.

I've seen the Heat team pass him the ball when he is open in the corner tho. Don't get me wrong, he has improved since his Cleveland days. It just that he still has the ball in his hands a lot.

He played point guard in his rookie year in the NBA.

No matter what he's the main ballhandler and he plays the PG role countless times, take it as you want it.
