Black mask, clear mask, no problem.
LBJ, King James, LeBane James whatever you used to call him is irrelevant. He is now Mr. 61.
A career-high 61 points on 22-of-33 shooting, 8-of-10 from 3, with seven rebounds and five assists. LeBron’s previous career-high of 56 came in 2005 against the Raptors. And he also broke Glen Rice’s Miami Heat franchise record of 56 points.
“The man above has given me some unbelievable abilities to play this game of basketball,” LeBron said in his postgame interview. “I try to take advantage of it each and every night.”
Forget Ellen’s selfie, Mr. 61 just blew up Twitter again.
