View Full Version : LeBron calls 138-point scorer 'Sir Jack'

MIAMI (AP) -- Attention, Grinnell College basketball office: LeBron James wants the tape from Jack Taylor's record-setting scoring spree.

Or as "King James" is now calling Taylor, "Sir Jack."
The NBA champion Miami Heat took plenty of notice of Taylor in their shootaround practice Wednesday morning, one day after the Grinnell guard scored a record 138 points in only 36 minutes of playing time against Faith Baptist Bible In Grinnell, Iowa. The Heat called their intern -- the day's designated shooter during a defensive drill for the team -- "Taylor" all morning during practice, and after the session, James was among those weighing in on the significance of the feat.

"It's unbelievable, honestly," James said. "I would like to see the game. I want to see the game." Hard to believe, but after one record shooting night, a three-time NBA MVP like James was putting Taylor in the same breath as all-time superstars like Kobe Bryant and Wilt Chamberlain. "I watched Kobe's game when he had 81," James said. "I watched some of the greatest games ever played when guys scored big numbers. There's two games that I would love to see: One was Wilt, when he had 100, and this kid, I want to see him too. Sir Jack." Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wasn't sure of the name of the school, but knew plenty about what Taylor had done.

"A lot of us probably wished we were at, Grimmell? Is that where it is? Grinnell?" Spoelstra said. James said he doesn't believe he's ever topped 56 points in any game -- he scored that many against Toronto in 2005, but didn't remember any game as a young player or high schooler where he had more.
He said he couldn't even manipulate a video game well enough to score 100 points, noting that "you've got to mess with the rules and the users and all that stuff to get to that."

How the hell do you score 138 points in a game at any level?

by making 27 3's and going 52/108 from the field.

By Jacking up a ton of shots.

I still don't understand how this happened but I agree with LeBron regarding the video game stuff. Messing around with the game sliders would be the only way to come close. Even then, I still don't think I could do it.

In one of the old nba games, Clyde Drexler caught fire and I think I had close to 100 in 5 min qtrs but that's about it.

what a ****en joke this is that this kid is being praised and his pathetic coach for running up the score on some helpless team. He missed 44 three pointers! Basiclly he must of missed a 3 they get rebound on this crappy team, kick it back out to him over and over till he makes it.

It's a ******** gimmick offense...

Just to show one of the other kids on the team they were playing against that night went 34-44 and scored 80 points.

It was an attempt to get on Sportscenter and they succeeded that's all.

By being a ball hog.

Are you really that stupid? Who gives a **** if he misses 44 threes, he made 27 of them. 38% isn't really a low percentage, you say it like he shot 200 three pointers at 15% shooting.

people keep saying he's a ball hog, but you're all ballhogs too and you can't get damn near 100 points in a game.

If I was playing against players relative to my talent level and I had teammates who were willing to be my ***** and give me the ball, I could probably get it. Not that hard to score against toddlers.

He never came back on defense either and cherry picked the whole game

I don't care what anyone says...the guy scored 3.8 points a minute...Thats ****ing impressive. Whats even more impressive is the team added 41 points as well. How in the hell do you score 179 points in 40 minutes?

haha, it's probably what he meant too. I'd give LeBron a lot more credit if he did.

I routinely do that in NBA Jam. You just go up against the same quality players.

i dont find it nearly as impressive as it's made to be. 27-71 3s...? Okay ya thats NOT BAD % but it's still not anything special. If I had the green light to shoot 71 3s I honestly think I might do even better in that level.

the only time i'll find something like this cool is if it's some unbleievable display of getting super hot/lucky and shooting over 50%.

Why the **** is there a thread about Lebron James's opinion on this kid? There have been 100 nba players giving quotes on this kid, but James gets his own thread? Sheep on this site.

Just putting this out there but it's a 5'10 white kid with a jump shot that took 100+ shots.. Common.. There wasn't a single coloured person in the game.. Only in the stands.. If I took 100 shots I'd get to 200 points what would Lebron call me then.. Emperor

The other guy on the other team scored 70 points on 78% shooting. Apparently 'Sir Jack' stayed at one end of the floor, waiting for his team mates to get the rebound.

This was set up, coach would not let anyone else shoot the ball.... This is like missing your own shot to get a 10th rebound......

I highly doubt there were any black guys in the stands watching a game consisting of 100% white players...

I just wish he would have went back and played defense, he cherry picked at half court.

Idk the highlights on sportscenter he was hitting some tough jumpers off the dribble.

I think they said the coach's gameplan is to shoot the ball within 12 seconds of the shot clock and he rotates teams of 5 in like every minute.

Either way its impressive. Most of you talking smack are crazy, you think you could do it but there is a reason its never been done before. D3 players are still WELL above average players.

Yeah he shot less than 50 percent. But just attempting that much shots and making that mark in unbelivable, not as easy as it sounds.

If that's how basketball is played on that team and if I'm allowed to shoot 108 freaking times, I'll put up even more than 138 points.

Seriously, anybody here even with some basketball skill at a high school level skill can do what he did. Don't play defense and just cherry pick all the time? Gotchya! Jack up 71 three pointers? Got it!

11-22-2012, 01:44 PM
You do this on nba 2k when you try to get the scoring title from wilt.... Cherry pick all day, no other player shoots the ball lol....I was listening to ESPN radio and this kid and his coach gets mad hate and no respect, its a disgrace to basketball overall...

I laugh at some of the responses on here. I'm sure a ton of people played high school ball on here, but how many of you guys even played D3 ball?
