    Amazing game and still a tier one superstar when he's healthy. That said, I thought he'd brick both those fts at the end lol

    IDK how this man is STILL this damn good in year fricking 21!!!!


    I wish he wasn't our best player but god damn it man...I guess LeBron is STILL a top 5 player and possibly still a top 3 / BEST player in the league when he's healthy.


    To do THAT with AD fouled out as well...my goodness this was HUGE from Bron. I feel like we need to give him a night off though....too many minutes this early and still too much reliance for my liking

    Lebron this year just feels like he has better stamina and also more explosiveness. Whatever that foot problem he had seems to be in the back view now.

    MVP candidate.

    few times now that we've gotten drives or post ups from lebron in crunch time instead of stepback threes.


    i'm actually starting to suspect that his FT problems are maybe why he's avoided those plays in the past couple of years, but i'm glad to see it. those off-the-dribble threes in crunch time were just not it, and we're so much better when he puts pressure on the defense instead of bails them out.

    Lebron is going to be scary once the springs fully activate. Then we'll have to worry about him pulling something, having flashbacks to his late 20's.

    LeBron in this game, made 3 steals, surpassed Drexler and took 9th place in league history - 2208.

    Number of matches with 35+ minutes:
    1. LeBron James 1,089
    2. Karl Malone 1,080
    3. Kobe Bryant 889

    For matches with 40+ minutes the situation is as follows:
    1. Allen Iverson 645
    2. Karl Malone 585
    3. Kobe Bryant 517
    4. Michael Jordan 516
    5. LeBron James 511

    Jordan had only 9 games with 30+ points in his last season... And he played all 82 games...
    LeBron reaches the 30-point mark for the fifth time this season.
    And he only need to score 5 points to get 39000 points .

    I understand your point however, Lebron makes 47 million a year. Only Curry, Durant, Jokic, and Embiid make more than him and guess what? those guys also have to CARRY. To be successful operating within the salary cap, your stars have to carry. Credit to him for doing that thus far.

    If Bron wanted to win and still have time to rest, then he should have taken a solid amount of less money so we can fill in more holes in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, he's worth it and then some based on his play thus far and the money he generates the organization and league overall, but based on the make up of our team he'll have to do it all year.
