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

He flows with the game so his stats seem underwhelming at times consider the talent he is.

Sometimes he needs to put his stamp on the game.

That's one of the things that I don't really enjoy about Lebron's game. If he kept going, there is not doubt in my mind he would have had a couple 60+ games to resume.

agreed

I'm kind of surprised that it hasn't happened yet. I think by the time Lebron gets close the game is usually a blowout. You see other great scorers putting up big numbers but the games are always close.

I'm sure Lebron has had many games where he contributed to 60 points with points and assists. Games that he could have scored 60 point if only he had been more selfish.

Yes he will at least once or twice, if he sets his mind on scoring.

Also the sooner people realize Kobe and Lebron are two totally different players the sooner they can appreciate them as is and not engage in petty bickering.

Lebron is known for his scoring & is considered by some the best scorer in the league, so its a fair question to ask if anybody thinks he'll ever hit that 60 pt game mark.


How is not having a 60 pt game a knock on Lebron? Since when was 60 pts games the criteria for all time greats? Its a freaking question of wether or not you think one of the best scorers in the game will ever have a 60 pt game?

Only the most insecure fans could take this as a knock, 60 pt games isn't the criteria for who is an all time great and who isn't.


I said I dont see it as a knock you dumbazz. And altho I have no doubt that if lebron really cared to gun for it he can score 60,I dont think he is mentioned amongest most potent scorers.

Most of that is your own doing. When 90% of your post are in some way trying to boost Kobe, and bash Lebron/Jordan, and you make a thread like this - even if it really is sincere - people are going to have a hard time believing it's not agenda driven.

If this thread had come from a more objective poster, it would have probably gotten better feedback. I don't have a dog in this fight, but I'm calling it as I see it.

To be fair Magic is the worst defensive player in the HoF.

Does not really matter. Scoring 60 or 80pts does not grant you an NBA title.

do you have anything to add to the topic besides bitching about the thread?

if you have a problem with it don't post in it? Or answer the question of the OP, there are a lot of people in here that had no problem answering the question w/o getting defensive about it.

You saw this thread and automatically thought it was to take a shot at Lebron, or to prop up Kobe, leave your personal feelings out of this and answer the question. I've stated numerous times in this thread that a 60pt game isn't some kind of qualification for being an all time great, but ironic that you don't quote that..

keep cherry picking my post looking for something to complain about, it's funny that when people make obvious troll threads to bash kobe and prop up whoever you have no problem with it..but this one struck a nerve did it? My original post was nothing but facts, no personal feelings or opinions behind it. I never said a 60pt game meant anything when it comes to being an all time great, hell tom chambers scored 60 once. Take your sour grapes somewhere else

The real shocker is how Durant doesn't have a 60 point game...

Lebron does have a 52-point triple double though (first player since Kareem in 75' to do that)

honestly though, the best chance for Lebron to actually hit a 60pt game would be in the playoffs IMO

Game 6 against the Celtics last year, he simply went into scoring mode for most of that game, if they go down 3-2 in a series again, i could see Lebron coming out with that same intensity & focus, he could get 60 with that mentality

Doubt it. He's too busy caring about his great stats to care for a 60-point game.

H'es not a versatile scorer in the mold of MJ or Kobe.
