NBA 2018-19: Scoring Leaders so far
#4 LeBron James
LeBron James is one of the NBA's elite. James is one of the league leaders in points almost every year. This year is no exception. If anything, it would be surprising if James was not on the list. James averages 27.7 points per game. He's helped the Lakers maintain a record of 18-12. The Lakers are the fourth seed of the Western Conference. The Lakers are playing better after their slow start at the beginning of the season.
Since James joined the Lakers, he's made an impact. He gives the young Lakers the veteran presence they need. James scores (when necessary) but he also rebounds and dishes the ball. He averages 7.7 rebounds and 7.0 assists. James scores but he can do much more.
On Sunday, James scored 13 points in a loss against the Washington Wizards. It was an out-of-character game for James. But, he'll likely recover in the next game. The Lakers play the Brooklyn Nets later tonight. I expect James to do a bit more scoring.
