Well, he does work for ESPN, but I gotta give him props. Earlier in the game when LeBron was gunning and dribbling and gunning and dribbling, Mike called him out on it.

Lol, I always love when they call him that when he's only like 24 and hasn't won a ring yet. Good thing they didn't call Grant Hill and all time great this early.

Ya know it would have been a great game from him if he didn't come out and say today that he wasn't gonna try and match Kobe.

James, however, downplayed any notion that he'll come in tonight with any intention of making it another personal showcase.

"I'm not a video game where you can expect me to go out there and score 60 or 70," James said to reporters after last night's win over the Raptors in Cleveland. "I play the game and I'm not about individual accolades. Kobe Bryant's performance was unbelievable, I watched every last second of it and he won the game. But it's not about individuals in this league; it's about the basketball game. I'm not trying to outdo Kobe or anybody on their team. I'm just trying to win the game."

Dove over like 3 guys for the rebound. No, LeBron doesn't care about individual accolades. Haha.

I think Lebron just learned how hard it is to score that many points. He was real hot early on but came down to earth towards the end (especially with his jump shots).

Good game for Lebron but a bit contrived. Regardless of what he said, he was gunning for the record.

Yeah apparently LeBron could retire now and he'll still be one of the all time greats.

Is this the first time any player has recorded a 50 points trip-dub?

Wow at LeBro. He really wanted that triple double how he tried to get that last rebound.

the only thing that bothered me about Lebron trying to up one Kobe was that he said after Kobe's game that he was a team player he's not out there for individual accolades...when they interview him i hope he just admits he was going after Kobe's record and be straight up about it and just say it

On his 9th rebound, Ben Wallace got the rebound and as he cradled it, it rolled off his fingers to LBJ who was standing right next to him, and they gave LBJ the rebound. Haha.
