Default Re: Dwyane Wade back working with Tim Grover

Thread is already derailed by RG, so I will address some OT stuff. Sorry OP, I hope Wade is healthy next year

Anyways, implying LeBron James isn't an elite scorer is absurd (at best).

NBA All-Time PPG Leaders

1. Michael Jordan, 30.12 PPG
2. Wilt Chamberlain, 30.07 PPG
3. LeBron James, 27.56 PPG

NBA Playoffs All-Time PPG Leaders

1. Michael Jordan, 33.45 PPG
2. Allen Iverson, 29.73 PPG
3. Jerry West, 29.13 PPG
4. Kevin Durant, 28.63 PPG
5. LeBron James, 28.05 PPG

Most 25+ PPG Seasons in NBA History
1. Tie-Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and Karl Malone-12
4. Jerry West, 11
5. Tie-Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Allen Iverson, Shaquille O'Neal and Dominique Wilkins-10
9. Tie-LeBron James and Oscar Robertson, 9.

Only 14 players in NBA history have had multiple seasons with 30+ PPG. LeBron is one of them. The others are MJ, Wilt, Oscar, Dantley, Kobe, Kareem, Iverson, West, Baylor, McAdoo and Gervin.

LeBron has 9 50+ point games. Not many players have more (since 1963-64, stats not completely available from before I guess):

LeBron has led the league in scoring once during the regular season and twice during the playoffs.

LeBron has a higher career PPG than any other active player.

All this has been accomplished with good to great efficiency.
