NBA Season 2017-18: Top 5 Transition Scorers
#3 LeBron James - 6.5 points per game
LeBron James was the driving force behind the Cavs finishing 4th on the transition scoring list (with 21.3 transition points per game) last season.
With the rebounding machine in Kevin Love by his side throughout the season, James could focus on running more and converting or drawing a foul as early as possible.
James is not consistent with his fast-paced game, although his athleticism is magnificent. He was amongst the slowest players in the league last year with an average speed of 3.88 miles per hour.
What makes the opponents sweat is his potential to spread the floor and make accurate passes at such high speeds. James ranked No.4 at transition assists with 2.2 per game in the past season.
Keeping in mind that he has now joined the team that had the best transition offence in the past 2018-19 NBA season - with the league’s most points scored in this way (23.4) - it will be fun to see how high he sets the bar for transition offence this year.
