Earlier this week, Rudy Gay scored 29 points on 37 shot attempts in a loss to the Raptors. Friday night, LeBron James scored 39 points on only 18 attempts. When asked about shot attempts/efficiency around the league, LeBron says he’d get 60-70 points “easy” if he was to take 37 shots in a game.
According to Tom Haberstroh of ESPN Miami:
After Friday’s game, James was asked about his reaction when he sees other players shooting 30 — or as much as 37 — attempts in a game.
“Um …,” James pondered for a few seconds as if he was calculating something in his head.
“If you give me 37 shots in a game, I’d have 60 … 70,” James said.
…“I had [almost] 40 now with 18 shots, I mean … If you give me 37 shots in a game, I’d put up 60. Easy,” James said.
