If he goes for 70, LeBron nuthuggers will argue it was greater than Kobe going for 81 because Kobe was on a bad team during the time.

well, they started out awesome against the Clippers, and they sat Lebron in the 4th right?

well, if the blow them out today, I think they're gonna sit him out.


The reason Kobe got 81 was because he had to get the Lakers back in the game. Cleveland is already pulling away.

I hope that some time in his career, LeBron spends maybe a year just getting records. Average a triple double, lead the league in assists, maybe a 50/20 game, a 31 assist game, just pretty much own the record books.

you also gotta love how bad the cavs were before lebron got tehere, and how horrendous they will be if he leaves. That roster without lebron and big z and shaq a year older is going to challange the 09-10 nets for the least amount of wins in a season. You also gotta love that IF he leaves the whole city economy is going to fall apart and the cavs will have one of the worst attendances in the NBA.

He simply states facts and just because he makes sense the most of the time and backs it up with facts you dont have anything to refute him other than homerish statments like this.

If lebron took 40-50 shots he prolly should have about 80 points; he is playing better than kobe this year and the lakers supporting cast is better than the cavs supporting cast.

He's the best player on the planet. When Jordan retired, I didn't think anyone could approach his greatness, and maybe LeBron won't do it, but he's certainly going to make it interesting. We're witnessing one of the greatest individual players the game has ever seen, and yet the majority of basketball fans don't even see him as the games best player. It's quite sad.

Agreed. There are certain games when he gets it going, where I honestly do think he could go for 80+, but it's like he knows better. He knows it isn't in the teams best interest, so after awhile, he lets up, and just starts playing team basketball. Gotta respect a player like that.

Thats because a majorty of basketball fans are lakers fans.

And I agree he is the best player on the planet and I think has a shot to rival Jordan in terms of pure domination.

There are always different sides to the coin but everything i have ever read from Maram makes sense; sure he might takes shots at kobe but they make sense and are based on facts. How can someone be a hater if they simply spew facts?

Hard evidence at what? That Lebron could score 80 if he took 40-50 shots; idk look at shot percentages?

The closet thing i have seen to him taking away from Kobe's accomplishments is simply saying he shot alot, which he did. He is taking anything away from it because what Kobe has done is extriondary i think he is saying that if a select few nba players shot 40-50 times like kobe did, they might be able to score 80 points.

Well Jordan has 6 rings and Lebron has 0. So Lebron has a long way to go to even challenge Jordan for the greatest of all time. He is the best player right now without a doubt, but everyone is already saying he's the king when he hasn't been crowned. If he scores more than 80 points, props to him, it adds to his resume, but dang people are already saying he's gonna be the greatest of all time and what not..

The sole reason that he goes out of his way, spends all that time, energy, research tools, and brain power in order to downgrade Bryant makes him a hater. I haven't come out until now saying all this stuff.

One thing I noticed on PSD:

People that give LBJ credit are fans of many different NBA teams.
People that don't give LBJ credit are always Laker fans.

There are more Kobe worshippers on PSD than for any other player. I wonder how many of 'em will commit suicide when Kobe gets old and LB is still tearing up the league lol.

At any rate, gotta appreciate the few Kobe fans that do give props to other players. I could never take anything away from all the great NBA players ESPECIALLY Kobe.

Peaks and valleys my friend. With timeouts, stoppages in the game, team turnovers and certain personal fouls, momentum changers of the game all that junk contribute to fluctuating statistical outputs of an individual throughout a 48-minute game.

For example, LeBron 13-18 FG 4-7 3 pointers in the 1st half

Halftime, game stoppage, so on and so forth


2nd half commences, LeBron 0-3 FG 0-1 3 pointers



Shooting 13-18 in first half doesn't mean it'll "necessarily" happen the same exact way in the 2nd half.

Im not guarnteeing that it will happen but if Lebron was going for points, shooting more, looking for his shot then he even with peaks and valleys he should be able to put up 80 points.

And with Lebrons game even if he is having an off shooting night, or hits a cold spell he has the quickness, strenght, finishing ability, and free throw ability/star power (All top 10 players when they make a good drive and hit get foul calls the majority of the time, they all do) That i think he would have a very good shot at getting to 80 if he took 40-50 shots.

Absolutely nothing against LeBron, he's having a big night, but this is what I mean of FG% fluctuations in a 48-min game where stoppages in a game (aka halftime) can slow the momentum of an individual player


first half 13-18 FG 4-7 3 pointers 5-5 free throws 35 points

after halftime/3rd qtr 1-7 FG 1-3 3 points 0-0 free throws 3 points

as looking at the box score, momentum changed due to game stoppage. while missing just 5 fields in 18 attempts in the first half, he missed 6 fields in 7 attempts in 3rd qtr alone

Ya, i know it changes; and all i am saying is that if he puts up 40-50 shots that he will go through peaks and valleys but his ability to drive and get to the line after he started off hot from distance would allow him to keep on getting points even if his shooting touch went cold.

Why? If he is hitting them then that means the defenders have to come that much further out to guard him. And when the defense gets drawn that far out it opens up more opportunities for passes or for blow by's. That is all if he can hit them, which he was.

Yes, its a disgrace to the game to aim for personal glory instead of letting it happen as a result of team play. Thats never been Bron, it never will be. Do you really think MJ couldnt have scored 81 if he wanted, if you do your the worst of the bunch.
