    Pisses me off that they have Lebron at #1. 40-16-8 is definitely a top 5/10 performance but it doesn't deserve #1 (considering some of the others). The media and NBA want to have a new MJ and are just trying too hard to be sensationalist. I mean Lebron is obviously hands down the best player in the NBA anyway. They don't have to go out of their way EVERYTIME to make sure Lebron is ALWAYS #1 on EVERY list. So annoying.

    Yeah that might not have even been his best game. Ho-hum stats for LeBron.

    You can't forget this is a business too. Would it surprise you if he was taking a PED? Strange baseball gets all the steroid hype when its clearly done in basketball and football.

    Not really, for one the NBA seems to be more of a red-headed step child among those three. Moreover, the players seem alot more naturally cut and lean, more so than those bulky home-run hitters or stocky NFL players. I'm not saying they cannot be users or great degree of them are not, but still basketball tends to require alot higher degree of skill for one to be successful than some of the other team sports. LeBron James is such an easy target, but he does not seem overly mature for his size ... some people are just naturally gifted or well-endowed.

    No mention of Harden's game against the Thunder?

    Seriously? Against the Kings? That's the #1 stat? I mean, I can understand if he put that up against the Spurs or the Pacers. But seriously? The Kings?

    To me, Noah's 23-21-11 blocks was definitely the most amazing. Double digit blocks in general are just ridiculous. But he also was 8-12 from the field for efficient scoring, and 8 offensive rebounds so he wasn't taking away boards from teammates either.

    Well when people think PED they automatically think muscle mass, strength, and endurance. A PED could also be used to help the body recover faster from game to game or speed along the healing process of an injury. We're constantly seeing reports of X player will be out 4-6 weeks, yet comes back in 3 like he never missed a game.

    Seriously, I believe that game was this season's GameScore record. He had 46 points on 19 freakin' shots against the best team in the West in a comeback win.

    I don't want to turn this into a steroid debate, but can you name anyone from football or basketball that has tested positive off the top of your head? If you keep up with baseball at all, you can name 10 easy. I'm not saying it's as prevalent in basketball or football, but to believe no one is taking them is very naive.

    Football players get popped all the time. It is just that no one cares. They take their four games and just move on.

    What if Ryan Braun had said oops I just overtrained. No one even seems to talk much about cushing getting popped.

    The Rockets team box score against the Warriors. It doesn't say individual :p

    Off topic, again, but Olajuwon 29 points, 18 rebounds, 10 assists, 11 blocks, 5 steals, 0 turnovers.:grin::grin:

    Actually if you make it 40 points and 15 assists it has happened 7 time. Lebron is the only guy to do it twice. The other time he had 13 rebounds.

    Wasn't there an issue with one of the assists? They originally didn't credit him with it or something

    Noah is probably the most impresive, but curry was also ridicously. 54 points on 11-13 3point shooting, thats sick. Also Harden is missing there, and lebron had no bussiness being number 1. The media is really trying to sell stuff and i hate that.

    The NBA doesn't even blood test though. They have no test for steroids or HGH.

    40, 16, 8 has never happened before in the history of the NBA. Not even Jordan did that.

    I think they're starting to test for HGH this offseason.
