In 67 years of NBA basketball.
Damn. He's on a legendary run. When it's all said and done, LeBron James will be the greates player to ever play basketball. Mark my words.
6 Straight games of 30pts+ and 70% shooting to be clear
I no longer hate you, you have become less douchey and actual god at basketball.
Yea my bad, AT LEAST 30pts and 60% shooting, some games better than that.
History being written
For comparison, Michael Jordan never did this, or Wilt Chaimberlain. Or KAJ. Or Larry Bird. Or Magic Johnson. None of em. Ever. In 67 years.
going to set more records than that before he hangs it up.
Jeff Van Gundy ask: "why does this matter?"
amazing feat though.
HOW HAS HE NOT EVEN PEAKED YET?
Looking better than Jordan. Unreal. Witnessing one of the greatest players ever. He just needs more rings.
Thats wat scary, dude is in his prime, and and still have many years left in his career, he jus turned 28, 10 years in da league and he is STILL gettin better every year
I hate LeBron. I can't hate LeGod.
As amazing as his streak right now is...
It still pales in comparison to Jordan's 10 triple doubles in 11 games in my opinion.
He always had it in him to be the best all-around player of all time.
He has a long ways to go to catch Jordan though.
Agreed but this is still a run that we will be telling our grand kids about when they are bragging about whatever superstar is dominating the league in 20-30 years.
Oscar Robertson had 41 triple doubles in one season. Dont mean he was as efficient.
Funny you mention that. apparently someone wrote an article about it in the last 2-3 days responding with the same thing you said. STORY
Well Jordan WAS efficient in that stretch, and I'm sure Oscar Robertson was too. Just neither AS efficient as Lebron right now.
I don't think so. The way these stats are being tabulated the most obscure things are being brought to light as "amazing firsts". No one knew about this until they constantly told us about it. There are so few MONUMENTAL firsts that sports media tries to dig deeper and deeper to find firsts that don't matter at all. Lebron is Great but a string of good shooting isn't going to hold up 20 years from now. How many people know or care about MJ's 10 triple doubles? not many.
The hate he received before last year just looks embarrassing.
