LeBron James averages 25.6 points per game this season and ranks 8th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list!
But HOW does he do it?
Here’s a breakdown of all the ways LeBron James is scoring this season.
1. In the Paint
The King owns the painted area of the court. LeBron scores 12.3 points per game in the paint. That’s nearly half his points!
2. Free Throw Line
LeBron lives at the line because he drives into the paint and gets fouled so much. James averages 4.8 points at the free throw line.
James doesn’t shoot from beyond the arc too often, but he still scores plenty out there. LeBron averages 5.6 points per game on three-pointers. That’s almost two three-pointers made in each game!
4. Mid-Range Jump Shots
A mid-range jump shot comes when a player shoots from outside of the painted area but instead the three-point line. LeBron scores 3 points a game on mid-range baskets.
