LeBron James established himself as the best player in the world about six years ago. He carried the Cleveland Cavaliers to the best record in the league two years in a row, moved to Miami, got to The Finals three times, and won two championships.
This season, Carmelo Anthony set a new Madison Square Garden record, Kevin Durant has put up 40-plus on a regular basis, and Terrence Ross (Terrence Ross?) dropped 51. And as all these other guys were putting up big scoring numbers, you realized that it had been almost nine years since the league’s best player had established his career high of 56 points, a number less than the career highs of guys like Gilbert Arenas, Michael Redd, Jerry Stackhouse and Deron Williams.
這個球季進行到現在為止，Carmelo Anthony刷新了麥迪遜花園廣場的得分記錄，Kevin Durant拿40分以上就跟家常便飯一樣，甚至Terrence Ross(有沒有搞錯?)也砍了一場51分的比賽。當其他球員不斷創造得分新高時，這名聯盟最佳球員上次創造生涯最高得分記錄的56分，已經是9年前的事情了，而這個數字還輸給許多人，像是Gilbert Arenas、Michael Redd、Jerry Stackhouse和Deron Williams。
