LeBron On Pace To Join Bird, Kareem, Wilt For Record Month
LeBron James is averaging 26.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 7.4 assists for December.
If James can sustain those numbers over the final three games of December, he will join Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to post such numbers in a month in the past 45 years.
Brid was the last to accomplish the feat in March of 1987.
“We don’t take LeBron’s talent for granted,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We never do. He gets it done on both ends. He takes a big workload for us and took over in the fourth quarter again [Wednesday] and made some big plays for us.”
