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

Wow a lot of butt hurt people in here. Only the most insecure fans would take this as something anti Lebron. With Lebrons ability to score as efficiently as he does I think its odd that he hasn't had a game where he explodes for 60.

The Jordan & Kobe comparisons were to eliminate the first 4 pages of eventual Jordan & Kobe 60 pt game talk. Also those 2 along with baylor are the only non big men to do it 3 or more times.

Wilts done it 32 times.. you guys need to calm down if somebody isn't praising a player its not hating, I'm sure some people are suprised that Lebron hasn't dropped 60.

Insecure fans make this into something it isn't.

If he's playing against the Lakers with Kobe guarding him, sure he will.

holy crap I had no idea Jordan and Lebron both have more FGA a game than Kobe. The way morons on this forum have been saying, I thought Kobe is the all time leader in FGA/game. less than 20 FGA a game is a ballhog, Lebron must be a bigger ballhog.

What you are forgetting is that he started off his career as a reserve lol, then a second option lmao. Yet he still found a way to be close in career FGA to superior players who had the reigns since day one, you really have to chuck to do that.

I commend him.

Probably not, but he's not that kind of player. Guy's vested in other areas besides scoring.

Nah, you're just a terrible troll. Why did you pick 60 of all scoring? I mean, he hit 56, those extra 4 points mean THAT much? With that 56 point game, he proved he can score, it's just not his game.

really? 60 pts is an arbitrary stat?

Cherry picking a stat would be making the cut off number 59 so i could talk about Jordan and his 30+ 50-59 point games.

What is there to discuss ? he wasnt good enough to play big minutes right away. He doesn't get a pass for that.

He was good enough to start on a bad team.

Was he good enough to start on a playoff team like the Lakers were? His growing pains would have hindered the team a bit, so most likely not. He was drafted by a team who already had a good young shooting guard in Eddie Jones, which just shows how much potential they thought Kobe had.

However you have to remember that this was 1996, teams weren't just lining up to hand over the keys to a franchise to a 17-18 year old rookie, the success of guys like Kevin Garnette & Kobe Bryant paved the way for bad teams who were now eager to get ahold of the next big high school prospect hoping he would turn into a KG, Tmac or Kobe.

But back then high school prospects weren't as highly touted and were considered a waay bigger risk than what they were worth.

Guys like Kobe & KG changed that perception, which led to the plethora of HS standouts entering the NBA eventually leading to the rule change
