Man, Myth and the LeBron James Streak

It’s Year X of LeBron James and prior to the last two weeks, we have been left without a defining basketball stat that personified what he could do individually that separated himself from other basketball greats. Bill Russell has his 10 rings. Wilt Chamberlain has his 100-point game, along with averaging 50 points and 25 rebounds over an entire season (not to mention the alleged 25,000 women that knew him intimately). Kobe has 81, Magic has versatility and MJ has everything else. What will come to define No. 6?
