The 15 Greatest Twitter Reactions to LeBron James’ 61-Point Game
15 Best Twitter Reactions to LeBron James' 61-Point Game
On March, 3 2014, Miami Heat superstar LeBron James set a career high when he threw down 61 points on the Charlotte Bobcats. On top of that, James broke the Heat franchise record for most points in a single game, which was previously held by Glen Rice and his 56 points that he scored on April 15, 1995. As amazing as the feat was (even if it was against the Bobcats), the Twitter reaction to James’ 61 points might be even better.
James is already considered the best player of a generation. However, it appears he has his sights set on a much higher title. He still has a ways to go to top the great Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, but there is no question he is giving the basketball loving public plenty to think about. As far as remaining in the present, the one thing James definitely accomplished is making sure the Most Valuable Player Award won’t be as clear-cut as everyone assumed.
Besides setting his own personal best and several Miami records, James also became just the third player in the past 25 years to take at least 33 shot attempts and make at least 66 percent of them from the field. Not to mention, he went 8-for-10 from 3-point range, and that was after he began the game 8-for-8 from beyond the arc.
It’s not Wilt Chamberlain’s 100 points or Bryant’s 81, but that doesn’t mean what James achieved isn’t special. It shows that the King is worthy of the title. Remember, James posted seven rebounds, five assists and one block to go along with his impressive scoring performance. He’s an all-around player who continues to make jaws drop on a nightly basis.
