Following the win against the New Orleans Pelicans, LeBron James was asked if he is the best shooter of the Los Angeles Lakers and whether he was the best shooter on the team before.

“We got a lot of great shooters on the team,” LeBron replied to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “KCP great shooter. Wes Matthews great shooter. Kuz can shoot the heck out of the ball. Dennis the Menace can shoot the ball as well. AD can shoot the ball. We got a lot of great knock down shooters

“If someone said bet, I’m going to take, you guys know, obviously, I’m going to take myself. That’s just the competitive nature in me and the work ethic that I put into my shot. I feel real good with my shot both from the free-throw line and and also from the three-point line.”

This season, James is making 48.6% of this two-pointers and 38.2% of his three-pointers. His career numbers are 50.3% and 34.4% respectively.
