  • Local high school basketball coaches weigh in on NBA's LeBron James

As a new generation of basketball fans join the ongoing conversation about who is the greatest, those of us who were fortunate enough to live through the playing careers of past legends would be wise to just enjoy the ride instead of critiquing every twist and turn.

James has only led the National Basketball Association in scoring once in his career, averaging 31.4 points per game in the 2007-2008 season. In 1962 he averaged 50 points and over 25 rebounds a game. LeBron has won three titles since that time and the Celtics franchise has not been back to the NBA Finals. The Celtics don't have anyone healthy who can play at the caliber of DeRozan or Indiana's Victor Oladipo.

LeBron still isn't following Tatum on Twitter, though.

Today, we are going to LeBron's game winners from worst to best.


It looks like his matchup with IN is going to be his toughest of his run to the Finals, unless Boston can pull some unforeseen magic out of nowhere. LeBron is as good as he's ever been. "LBJ you make me sad", referring to the Raptors' playoff loss and the friendly rivalry between Drake and LeBron. LeBron James will obviously be the biggest domino in free agency, and where he goes (or stays) will have a ripple effect around the league. Saturday Night Live even sent up Cleveland's dumbfounding over-reliance on their star player in an unaired sketch from over the weekend.

Jayson Tatum has had an incredible rookie year.

"I said what's up", Tatum said of his first encounter with James prior to the season opener between the Cavs and Celtics. LeBron still has many chances left for him chasing Jordan as LeBron could win more championships or accolades in order for him to surpass Jordan. Before getting swarmed by teammates, LeBron appeared to be the most surprised person in the building to see the shot go down, immediately throwing his arm up and sprinting back down the court.

Right now, the king and his Cavaliers are waiting for Sunday afternoon to arrive, when Game 1 against the Boston Celtics tips off. It's helped the Cavaliers win six of their seven games that have gone down to the wire, their only loss coming in Game 3 of their first-round series against the Pacers. Considering Boston has four players scoring 16.2 points per game or better through 11 playoff games, it'll stretch Cleveland's defense thin.
