The First Take crew discuss comments made by a “NBA Scout” who suggested that LeBron, who only has 6 dunks so far this season, is on the decline.

After 21 games this season, his 25.5 points per game and 5.5 rebounds per game averages are his lowest since his rookie season in 2003 when he averaged 20.9 and 5.5.  His 7.6 assists is the highest since he left Cleveland in 2010 but so his his field goal %. His 3.7 turnovers per game is also a career-high but that number should dip by the end of the season.
