Not Michael Jordan. Not Larry Bird. Not Magic Johnson. Not Bill Russell. No one.
And that is where the comparisons can begin with Lebron James and what he is doing right now on the court.
In 6 straight games, he has scored at least 30 points and has done so by shooting over 60% from the field in each contest. No one can say they have done this. Lebron James is shooting 72% over that span and 56% from three point range. This is not some guy just looking to get his points and keep it going, he is helping his team win by being efficient from the field.
It has to have been one of the greatest years for any NBA athlete ever. You win your first NBA title and validate yourself in the eyes of your harshest critics. You then run off to help win a gold medal for Team USA. You were named MVP of the league. Now, you are leading your team towards a defense of the title and are in the heart of it all with one of the hottest streaks ever – no, the hottest stretch ever – in the NBA’s history.
All you can do is take a bow. His opponents can’t explain it either. Just enjoy this, Heat fans, because we may never see a single player accomplishment like this any time soon.
