Default LeBron said he would score 60,70 points with amount of shots Rudy Gay had

Quote:
After the game, one reporter asked LeBron about a hypothetical situation where he would take the same amount of shots as Gay did on Monday. "You give me 37 shots in a game, I'll have 60, 70," James said. "I had 40 tonight on 18 shots. If I get 37 shots in a game, I'm going to put up 60. Easy."

I don't think there's much denying it, but I really hope a reporter tells this to Rudy lol

Yea, but he also went 14/18 in that game. He shoots a really high percentage, but that's just out of this world. Highly doubt he'd go 28/36, which would be required to score about 60 or so. But if this motivates Rudy then I'm all for it.

In the 2012 East Finals he went 19/26 in a game 6 elimination game against the Celtics' defense and had 45 points. That would equal roughly around 55 points with 37 shots if I'm not mistaken. He also only hit 2 threes and 5 free throws, so you have to account he would get some extra points there. So yeah I think he can do it in a regular season game for what it's worth no doubt.

I'm so thrilled to see so may volunteering to tell LeBron he's blowing smoke.

Save it for Rudy.

I think he could do it. But how I read it, he's trying to make it seem like anytime he would throw up 37 shots, he would drop 60/70. He could do it, but definitely not on a regular basis. Not without two all stars next to him either, which Rudy doesn't have.

- On January 27 2013 he took 31 shots and scored 34 points.
- On March 18 2013 he took 29 shots and scored 37 points

If we go back to Cleveland:
- On March 20th he took 36 shotsand scored 56 points
- On Jan 21 2006 he took 35 shots and scored 51 points
- Feb 04 2009 he took 33 shots and scored 52
- Jan 27 2008 he took 32 shot and scored 41 (several others that year on and near 30 with close to 40 points)

Maybe he could? Or his younger self could... Would have to be a huge night though

doesn't that prove he can do it, he is much better shooter, has better post moves, and gets more fast break points in Miami, LeBron is at the peak of his powers right nwo

He averages 27.3 points on 16.4 shots. That equates to 61.6 points on 37 shots.

That still doesn't guarantee he would do it consistently. As he would continue to jack up shots not only would get more tired, he would likely see the defensive coverage change if he was seemingly the primary scorer and making the majority of his shots. But oh well, I'm all for it if it motivates Rudy.

at this point I doubt it would motivate him I sincerely think he's just collecting a paycheck and does not give a fart about any thing else and it shows on his body language

Big deal, take a look at his average when he has taken 35+ shots in his career and he doesn't average 60+ppg. It's still extremely impressive, the guy is the best player in the world but still.

With his ability to hit the three now, I could definitely see him do it if he's motivated.

With the way he plays now, he could easily do it. His shot percentages have gone up drastically, especially since he plays closer to the basket.
