LeBron ties Jordan for NBA record 866 consecutive games scoring 10+ points

Monday, 02 Apr, 2018

Nikola Jokic had 29 points, 16 rebounds and eight assists for the Nuggets, who lost their second straight game.

The debate has raged on for the past 10 years at least, and even after all the accomplishments LeBron has racked up over the past decade, it doesn't look like we've managed to progress at all in the argument over who's the better player. What about his 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 seasons with the Miami Heat?

The only guys that have put up numbers like LeBron is doing this season are Oscar Robertson, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook, and they all did it in their 20s. In 17 minutes, Wade had 12 points, four assists, four blocks, and two rebounds.

This criticism has some merit though it lacks context.

The Hornets cut Cleveland's 20-point lead to 11 points but James re-entered the game and made an immediate impact with a few more highlight reel plays.

FanSided's All U Can Heat reported that the relationship between James and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert has continued to "deteriorate", and so a move away from Cleveland in the summer would not be a surprise.

3-Point Goals-Cleveland 11-28 (James 4-8, Hood 2-4, Osman 1-2, Smith 1-2, Clarkson 1-3, Green 1-4, Hill 1-5), Charlotte 5-21 (Walker 2-8, Kaminsky 1-1, Monk 1-3, Lamb 1-3, Bacon 0-2, Batum 0-2, Williams 0-2). As a result, he's not often suffocating ball-handlers until crunch time, when his man is likely to take the shot himself rather than pass the ball.

"It's great to have nights like this, but it's better to be in the playoffs", said the 22-year-old Towns, who eclipsed the club scoring record of 52 points held by Mo Williams. Without a dominant rim-protector in the paint or a bevy of high-motor defenders with athletic prowess, players are less apt to be aggressive defenders on the perimeter. "Certainly Michael was as good of a finesse player as there was". He's still in a uniform and not a suit, despite all of the Coach LeBron jokes.

Like years past, the Miami Heat's success is predicated on effective team defense and timely baskets.

In his 15th National Basketball Association season, LeBron is having one of the best statistical seasons of his career.

The times where they need him most. Many came to watch James fail, to flip the channel and declare him a product of hype. Seven Washington players scored in double figures, led by Markieff Morris's 15 points, and the Wizards snapped a three-game losing streak to strengthen their position in the tight Eastern Conference.

LeBron James became a millionaire two weeks before his high school graduation when he inked an endorsement deal with Upper Deck that included a $1 million signing bonus.

But a referee blew his whistle while James was staring down the rim.

"Absolutely, absolutely", James said.
