Do we recognize how great LeBron James is?

  • “They’ve got LeBron James,” Lowry told The Vertical late Friday night. “Nobody’s closing the gap on him. I mean, that’s it right there: They’ve got LeBron James and nobody’s closing the gap on him. I don’t know when his prime is going to stop. I don’t think it’s going to stop anytime soon. I think he’ll be able to continue what he’s doing for a long time. But that’s basketball. You’ve got to find a way to beat the best.”
  • LEBRON JAMES last 10 playoff games (10-0):
  • 41-16-7, 41-8-11, 27-11-11, 36-6-13, 25-10-7, 41-13-12, 33-10-4, 35-10-4, 39-6-4, 35-8-7
  • 34.9 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 8.0 APG, 54.4 FG%, 46.3 3P%, 63.7 TS%
  • Could Nikola Jokic be 80 percent of that some day?
