LeBron is having another unbelievable season where he literally does everything while rarely missing anything. He’s only shot under 50% seven times this season and has shot over 70% six times!
Last night was no exception as he flirted with a 30 point triple double (9 assists and 9 rebounds) in only 33 minutes while making 13 of his 17 shots. It should have been 14 of 18 but his most spectacular dunk of the night was called off because of a silly foul by Trey Burke.
Interesting note about the Jazz rookie is Burke has been a huge fan of LeBron since James’ high school days and LeBron has been watching Burke play since Trey was in the 7th grade.
“To see him be here now in this league where he’s always had a passion, always had a dream about being here, I think it’s unbelievable,” James said of Burke.
As a welcome to the league gift from LeBron, Burke got an up close look at what a LeBron dunk looks like from above and felt how fast and powerful those dunks are when the ball went through the net and hit Burke in the head.
