Default Lebron says he could averge 35-40 ppg if he really wanted too

He says he would be tired through for 40ppg, but think he could comfortable average 35ppg.

I don't see it happening.

This the same dude the Spurs gave 5 feet and dared him to shoot.

His jumper is suspect.

He would have to chuck his heart out to reach 35ppg... I think he could've back in 2009 though

Possibly. Doubt he'd be very efficient though.

Of course. So could Durant, Melo, etc. The question is: at what cost?

I doubt it.

This is the same guy who's pretty much mentally weak and we can all agree to this. The Spurs also dared him to shoot. He won't be averaging anything close to that.

I could say 31-35 right now, but not 40. I'm not going to look it up right now but I believe that Kobe averaged like 28 shot attempts in his 35 PPG year. LeBron is definitely not going to chuck 28+ shots per game to achieve a scoring title.

He averaged 31 on 48% at 21. I can see him getting 35 on 46-49%.

Not on the Heat. Not with the amount of talent he has on his team, and how they blow teams out.

Not with his current first step, and not as impressive explosion or finishing ability. He gets a ton of points in transition now. Super cherry picks FG attempts.

With his diminished athletic abilities, he plays smarter, but not near as dynamic or explosive. He's never been a guy scoring off incredible footwork, and offensive scoring skill set like MJ showcased at 33, 34, 35, 38, 39 and 40, or Kobe at 32, 33 and 34.

He'd have to chuck, his FG% and efficiency would decrease dramatically. 40 is absolutely out of the question.

LeBron said he could get 35 ppg, which I believe he could plausibly under the right conditions.

Chris Boussard, arguably as big of a LeBron nut gobbler as ISH's own: pauk, NumberSix, RG, secundtonone, KingwillBall, plowking, aj1987, madmax, Hoopenumber1fan ... egged him on to say 40 ppg.

He would not be able to do that, even on a bad team. He just doesn't have the scoring skill set for that, and without his athleticism he had from 2006 - 2010, he's not even coming close.

In the weak 80s-90s? sure. Today.. I don't think so.


Part of what makes LeBron such a dangerous scorer, aside from his insane level IQ, athleticism and (recently) his shooting is his passing. I feel if he goes all-out scoring mode he'll be far more predictable and teams would be able to zone in on him a lot more. Teams force great scorers to pass and great passers to score.. LeBron is in that healthy medium which makes him far more dangerous and efficient.

Maybe. 35-40 and maintaining good efficiency is another ballgame.

Lebron could hit 40 if he took enough shots, but he is not a low IQ player like that so low IQ fans would not understand.

Btw Lebron has dropped 10 pounds recently.
