LeBron James currently ranks fifth in points per game at 25.2, but he believes he could lead the NBA in scoring this season if he wanted to.

"If I wanted to, I could lead the league in scoring, but that's not my job here," James said.

"My job is to do a lot of everything -- rebounding, passing and defending so that takes away from my scoring. I've done (the scoring title) before. I'm capable of doing it, but my game sometimes doesn't allow me to have those big nights."

As for how many points James would average if he wasn't so concerned about his passing, Erik Spoelstra said: "He could average 37 points a game, realistically I think."

James won the scoring title in 2007-08 when he averaged 30 points.
