Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue was a serviceable player during his 11-year career on the hardwood. He averaged 8.5 points and 3.1 assists in stops with seven different teams around the Association.
But not a single person will mistake Lue for one of the greatest to ever suit up. Of course, we’re talking about Cavaliers forward LeBron James. In discussing James’ absurd streak of 787 consecutive games with double-digit points, Lue had a hilarious take.

This couldn’t be any more true. And Lue is right that he averaged 10-plus points over the course of four consecutive seasons. Dude surely does know his own stats.
As it relates to LeBron, the reigning NBA Finals MVP has never averaged less than 20.9 points per game. That came during his rookie season back in 2003-04, when he was months removed from playing high school basketball.
The last time James failed to score double-digit points was all the way back in January of 2007 against the Milwaukee Bucks. That game saw him go for eight points on 3-of-13 shooting.
