Dominique Wilkins on LeBron’s 61-point game: ‘It was too easy to score’

LeBron James record

LeBron James caught fire on Monday night against the Charlotte Bobcats and went off for a career-high 61 points. He set Miami Heat franchise records for points in a game, points in a quarter (25) and field goals in a game (22). The accomplishment came against a mediocre team, but does that really matter? Dominique Wilkins believes it does.

On Tuesday, Wilkins took to Twitter to play Devil’s advocate while everyone was still buzzing about LeBron’s huge night. The nine-time NBA All-Star simply saw it as LeBron getting hot against a terrible defense.

“No denying he put on a shooting display,” Wilkins wrote. “He was hot. Let’s not forget, he was playing the Bobcats. A sub-.500 team (with) a match up nightmare. Where is the Defense? The Bobcats put up 107 points in a defenseless display of basketball. Offensively who was there to make Bron work on D?”

Dominique Wilkins was made out to be the victim in a fan attack that took place following the Hawks-Magic game Wednesday night, but it turns out he was anything but innocent.

Former Referee Rashan Michel Attacked Dominique Wilkins Over Unpaid Suits

Former Atlanta Hawks nine-time All-Star Dominique Wilkins was attacked following the Hawks-Magic game in Atlanta Wednesday night by former referee Rashan Michel.

We’re not joking.

Michel reportedly told police he went after Nique because he was owed money for suits purchased several years ago. Anyone who’s seen Dominique dress knows he can’t owe him more than 50 or 60 bucks, as BSO comically noted.

The best part of the story is that “Nique landed three solid blows on his alleged attacker, who swung at Nique but didn’t land anything solid” according to a tweet by Sekou Smith. The next step is getting video of this incident. How is it possible not to have a clip from the Human Highlight Reel? This has to beat any dunk he ever accomplished, right?

As for Michel, he reffed 54 NBA games from ’97-’98 and according to his Covers profile, he seemed to have low-scoring games. He’s also reffed 49 college games in his career according to Stat Sheet. Most notably, Michel is also now 0-1 in his unofficial boxing career.
