Worst shooter in the league? Stop it (Shaq voice)!
Earlier in the day, a lot of people were asking if LeBron was “the worst shooter in the league” after NBA.com writer John Schuhmann shared a graphic showing the worst high-volume shooters from outside the paint this season. At the top of the list was the King himself, LeBron James, at 28.5% – right below Kobe Bryant.
I don’t know if LeBron heard about the stats or not (doubt he would really care if he did), or if he was just happy because he was about to celebrate a birthday, but LeBron had one of his best offensive games of the season that night: He was 7 of 12 from outside the paint and 13 of 24 overall as the Cavs beat the Nuggets 93-87.
LeBron was feeling so good, he was even singing some Marvin Gaye “Let’s Get It On” during the game.
The about to turn 31 year old was feeling so good he was even talking trash during his Denver dunkfest: With 2 minutes left in the game, LeBron threw down a wide-open reverse dunk and then smiled and joked with Chauncey Billups on the sideline. He wouldn’t tell the reporters after the game what he said to Billups.
“Always great to see him,” James said.
