LeBron James Not Concerned With His Scoring in NBA Finals

by June 07, 2011

While the silly debate about whose team the Miami Heat is (LeBron James or Dwyane Wade’s) rages on, LBJ is fighting another battle with the press regarding his relatively low scoring output so far in the championship series. For James, it’s all about the end result: winning. From the AP: “Here’s what constitutes what some might consider a “down” series for James so far: 20.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and six assists per game on just over 50 percent shooting from the field. James, as he’s done most of the season, is shrugging off the criticism. The Heat, which leads 2-1 in the series, is just two victories from winning the NBA championship, and to James that’s the only number that matters now. ‘Anybody that knows me throughout the years, all I care about is the ‘W’ no matter if I’m scoring,’ James said Monday. ‘I’m not just a scoring guy. I’ve got a lot of points in my career. I have had some teammates who have given me great confidence and ability to go out there and score a lot of points. But I’ve done other things. I don’t have to score points to be effective.'”
