King James Takes it to the Rack

SnapCall Question
Never Doubt LeBron James

Carmelo Anthony is an efficient shooter from the right side of the court according to ESPN's latest analysis. While that's true, LeBron James is an efficient scorer from everywhere on the court. Inside, outside, or from behind the arc -- he does it all.

In Miami's win over Los Angeles on Sunday, James scored 32 points on 12-of-18 shooting to become just the third player in NBA history to score 30+ points and shoot over 60% in 5 straight games.

LeBron has made great strides on his jumper throughout his career, but the reason he's shooting such a high-percentage is because of his ability to get to the rim. When it was all said and done tonight, James shot 5-of-7 from inside the paint against the Lakers.

Given that King James gets to the rack at will, it's no surprise that when we asked about James' shot selection, the correct SnapCall was "inside the paint." Did you get it right? Then again, maybe that answer wasn't a sure bet since LeBron is 8-of-13 from beyond the arc in his last three games.
