Over these 10 games, the Heat went 6-4 — a winning percentage of .600, or well below their season percentage of .800, but also a rate that still would’ve made them one of the league’s better teams.
And LeBron? Over these 10 games — remember, these are the 10 WORST games of his season — he averaged 19.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 3.9 turnovers on 47.6% shooting.
If those numbers were his season averages, LeBron would be the league’s 12th-highest scorer.
He’d have a higher shooting percentage than Kobe Bryant, James Harden, and Carmelo Anthony.
He’d have more rebounds per game than all but one player who scores more than 19.3 points per game, that player being LaMarcus Aldridge.
And he’d have more points, rebounds, and assists, plus a higher shooting percentage, than Luol Deng and Paul George, who both made the Eastern Conference All-Star team.
In short: if LeBron James played as poorly in every game as he did in his 10 worst, he’d still be an All-Star.
