All-N.B.A First Team Predictions: Forward- Lebron James (Cleveland Cavaliers)


Per Game Stats: 25.3ppg 7.4apg 6.0rpg 1.6spg 26.01per

Lebron James had a down year regressing in points, rebounds, and overall efficiency. Compared to other seasons he had this would not be in his All-time first teams. But compared to the rest of the league Lebron’s overall game is still elite. He averaged the second most assist of his career which seemed to be the difference maker in the Cavs games. In wins, he averaged 8.0apg but that number plummeted to 5.8 in losses. It’s clear that if Lebron James continues being a facilitator for the Cavs he will be able to take on less of a scoring role in the end of his career. In the playoffs James has struggled with his efficiency (41.8fg% 15.43pt%) and with turnovers 5.3pg but has made up for it in other categories. Through the Cavs first 8 games (6 wins) James has averaged 26.5ppg 10.1rpg 7.8apg 2.0spg and 1.4bpg. These Oscar Robertson like numbers although sloppy at times are the driving force in the Cavaliers playoff run along with some clutch shooting (like his game winning shot in game 4 against the Bulls). Although James recently turned 30 and his best days might be behind him he still has he seems like he has many productive seasons ahead. It’s safe to say this won’t be James last appearance on the All-Nba first team.
