Default Re: Will Lebron ever score 60 pts in a game?

I think free throws are key to 60-point games. LeBron's gonna have to have a great night at the free throw line, both in attempts and FG made's.

Only 4 players shot below 80% FT during their respective 60-point performances.
T-Mac - 17/26 FT (65%)....still hit 17 of them.
Arenas - 21/27 FT (78%)....21 made.
D-Rob - 18/25 FT (72%)....18 made.
Shaq - 13/22 (59%)....he went 24-for-36 FG though.

LeBron has never taken more than 20 FTA in game in a Heat uniform yet. And with his below 80% FT shooting ability, I think it'll be very slim chance that we'll see a 60-point game from LeBron.

He also hasn't taken more than 30 FGA in a game in a Heat uni yet either. He's not gonna go greenlight and shoot all the time as he pleases like he did in Cleveland anymore.

Basically.... limited FTA, poor FT shooting(70-something % is poor for a perimeter player), and doesn't like to shoot too much(he likes reserving that FG%) is the reason why we might not see a 60-point game from LBJ.

It's possible but Lebron doesn't really have a scorer's mentality, he is too much of a team player. If he really wants to get 60 points then Spoelstra is going to have to draw up plays for Lebron the whole game and if he gets hot from deep or midrange and if he gets a ton and1's and freethrows.. then he would definitely get that 60 or 50!

Jordan 30+ FGA games

1991-92 = 14
1992-93 = 20
1995-96 = 8
1996-97 = 15
1997-98 = 11

lebron doesn't chuck....even when Lebron is hot like 20 pts in a qtr type hot, he eventually stops looking to score and goes into "Point Guard" mode and does nothing but look to pass and make the right plays. Take game 6 vs Boston in the playoffs lat year. lebron could have easily scored 55+ in that game. he had 41 after 3 and in the 4th went into PG mode instead of forcing it.

There is a reason why I correlated the quantity of Kobe's FGA to the quality of 2008-10 Lakers front court.

MJ has an excuse as him and Pippen were the only viable threats on offense, arguable Grant as well but he is no where near a Gasol-Odom-Bynum trio.

And this on/off mentality also gives us the spectacles that are his epic meltdowns (2010 and 2011). No better or worse than shooting too much.

Still pretending the whole Odom/Bynum thing makes sense?

He could have in his Cavs days. He's way too conscious about his FG% now though.

No he doesn't want or need to shoot the ball 30-35 times in a gm. Lebron could very Easily shoot 25-35 from the field which would be a great percentage scoring so many points.

He doesn't need to. When he's usually scoring a lot of points, he does it early and the game is blown out before the fourth quarter and he sits the rest of the game .
