If you haven’t already taken a gander at Miami Heat star LeBron James interview with ESPN’s Chris Broussard, then you might not have heard this statement from the mouth of the four-time MVP.
In the article, Chris asked LeBron if he chose to be a scorer, how many points could he average:
What could you average if you just went out and looked to be a scorer?
Probably more than that.
Probably more than that. I could get about 35 or 40. I probably could do it. It’d be hell on my body, though, I tell you that, trying to get 40 a night. But I can get 35 a night. I’m averaging eight assists a game. You cut that in half. I’m at 27, 28 points a game right now, with eight assists a game, so …
Personally, I believe it!
