So now that we've parlayed any argument of Jordan & Kobe are chuckers by comparing FGA per game throughout their entire career, we can actuallly see that Kobe has attempted slightly less Field Goals per game than Jordan or Lebron.


Averaging in Kobe's first 2 seasons when he wasn't even a starter?

http://www.basketball-reference.com/...bryanko01.html
http://www.basketball-reference.com/...jamesle01.html

On a career per 36 minutes average:

Kobe: 19.3
Lebron: 18.2

Now back to your regularly scheduled Kobe circle jerk.

Lebron is not a chucker like Kobe.

Kobe regular season:

25.5 ppg (19.6 fga), 5.3 rpg, 4.8 apg, 45.5% fg

Kobe playoffs:

25.6 ppg (20.5 fga), 5.1 rpg, 4.7 apg, 44.8% fg




Lebron regular season:

27.5 ppg (20 fga), 7.2 rpg, 6.9 apg, 49.1% fg

Lebron playoffs:

28.1 ppg (20 fga), 8.6 rpg, 6.7 apg, 47.2% fg

Like Lebron didn't force the Celtics game 6 his fans fap to all the time... Was it forced or was it needed?

He doesn't "force" it cause his teams have been naturally pretty good + the fact that he will never have the capacity to score as well as Kobe or Jordan did. His talent is just not there when it comes to pure scoring - his midrange game is still atrocious. He can however excel at other things like rebounding and passing - outside shooting, scoring in the paint. That gets you Lebron numbers. You want Kobe or Jordan numbers you go to Kobe or Jordan.

LeBron has the ability to do it, but with the type of player he is I don't think he ever will. He has too much a passing mentality. There's a reason he averages 7-8 assists per game in his career.

It's not like LeBron doesn't take enough shots or play enough minutes to score 60+.
Actually, it's exactly like that. You simply don't score 60 points on 20 FGA..... Not unless you shoot 20 3s and they ALL go in.


The crazy thing to me is this......


Kobe has 100 30+ FGA games and 21 36+ FGA games. Are many of those with the Shaq, Fox, Horry roster? If so....

I can kinda understand him shooting 36 shots on that Smush, Kwame, Walton team, but with The Shaq 3peat team? That would be fcuked up.

You can on 30+ FGA games, of which LeBron has 31. Yes, 31 different games where he took 30+ shot attempts, 31 different opportunities to break 60 points, 0 successes to do so.

It's simply a fact: LeBron's career FGA (20.1) exceeds Kobe's career FGA (19.6)

It's simply a fact: LeBron's career FGA (20.1) exceeds Kobe's career FGA (19.6)
Say a guy has 122 games where he shoots 30+ FGA. Say this guy happens to have 5 60+ point games. That means he's taken 30+ FGA while failing to score 60, on 117 different opportunities. 31 failed opportunities doesn't seem like so much all of a sudden. Not to mention in addition to the high attempts, he was also either shooting 20+ FTs in those same games, or his FGA were much higher than just 30 (ie: 37, 39, and 46 - all higher than LeBron's career high). The volume of shots isn't comparable, and the explosive games in FGA are definitely not comparable either. That's not to say that LeBron can do exactly what Kobe can do, but comparing their field goal attempts like they're the same won't lead anywhere.

And since you enjoy simple facts: LeBron's career PPG (27.5) also exceeds Kobe's career PPG (25.5).

Who cares...LeBron haters would call him a ball hog if he made every shot.

LeBron doesnt need to score 60 for the heat to win.

Exactly. Did anyone see opening night. Dude scored like 13 total points (garbage time) while his team smoked the Bulls
