Shooting an absurd 61% from the field in the first 9 games, this game is too easy for him, I'm pretty sure everyone is tired of him winning MVP, but come on how can you deny the guy, this game is just too easy for him.
Even more impressive-51% from 3
Competition committee should consider letting the opposing teams put 6 players on the floor :-/
As good as Lebron is playing, they still have 3 losses. I know you were probably joking but still, the Heat aren't unbeatable.
I don't know how he continues to just get more efficient every year. I can't imagine a non-center shooting 60% from the floor for a whole season. If LeBron did it I wouldn't even know what to say.
he continues to get more efficient because he is reaching his basketball prime. thats where your athletic prime and IQ prime meets. the next 3 years will be something to behold. watch closely as I believe you are watching the guy who will eventually be recognized as the best to ever do it. he's found his groove and now he pretty much knows exactly what to do and what not to do....thats what makes you efficient....the discipline.
The highest FG% for a non post-player (C or traditional PF) that I can think of is Adrian Dantley's 58.0 FG% in 1983 on 20.3 FGA per game, he put up two other years with a FG% over 57. James Worthy had two years with a FG% of 57.9 and John Stockton had one year with a FG% of 57.4.
If anyone can think of any better than those (obviously while still being eligible for a spot among the league leaders) feel free to correct me.
I looked it up on Basketball-Reference's "Play Index"
Adrian Dantley holds the highest FG% for non post-players
that can be misleading because Dantley was essentially a post-up player but didnt play a post position. most of his points came from the post hence why he is known as the greatest post player under 6'6" (unless you take Barkley's true height into consideration)
Stockton? Well, that was just phenomenal.
Worthy scored most of his points in or around the paint if not on Fast Breaks. He compares mostly to Lebron. Where Lebron differs is, he takes more jumpshots than any of these guys except Stock. All of these guys were anomalies, but if LBJ can shoot 60% while avg 26-27ppg....then thats unheard of.
What happens if he shoots 60% from the field all year? The guy defines the word efficient.
Helps when get so many dunks and layups.
Take those out and no one shoots 60%.
He's been MVP every year since 07 or 08 anyway nothing new except he's hitting more 3s and jumpers now.
Dude that's funny, I thought Derrick Rose won MVP in 2011
What's wrong with going to the basket for easy baskets? LeBron is able to, others not, simple as that.
this season he wants to dominate in field percentage,he's maybe going at 60,40,90 season which would be the most dominant season ever for a player,just beacause it is practicall imposible,Center can shoot in high 50s and 60s but cannot hit a 3 or ft at this clip.
Lebron won't be shooting 90% from the charity stripe anytime soon. It's more likely that he finishes the season shooting 60% from the field than 90% from the line.
