LeBron James recently put on a mask and transformed into a whole new scoring machine. After stating in November that he would ‘put up 60, easy’ if he was granted Kevin Durant’s amount of attempts, the two-time reigning league and Finals MVP set a new career high with 61 points, on just 33 shots.

Before Ray Allen was winning Larry O’Brien trophies with the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat, he was ringless in Seattle.
