LeBron James Wins Scoring Title


Although he didn’t play, James finished the season as the league’s scoring champion — a first for a Cavaliers player. The 23-year-old averaged 30.0 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.2 assists, becoming the first player to average those stats since Michael Jordan in 1988-89.

James, Jordan and Oscar Robertson are the only players to average 30-7-7 in a season.

All those stats will be meaningless beginning this weekend, when the Cavaliers attempt a second run at the Eastern Conference championship. [ESPN]
