Could LeBron James Shoot 60 Percent?
For one remarkable 21-game stretch during the 2012-13 regular season — more than one quarter of all games — LeBron James shot 63.2 percent from the field.
At this point in his career, James is playing the game of basketball against himself more than he’s actually competing against opponents. During training camp and the preseason, he has laid out a few of his goals for 2013-14. Among them, he wants to take the most efficient shots possible within the flow of the Heat’s offense while also focusing his efforts inside the box.
Given those objectives, could James shoot more than 60 percent from the field for an entire regular season?
“I don’t really set out goals as far as what I want to shoot from the field,” James said. “I know I want to take good shots and I know I want to be in attack and if that results in [60 percent] then it will be great, but I want to get the best shot for myself and for our team every possession.”
