LeBron has never posted his career average in a single regular-season game


1289 regular-season games into his 18-year NBA career, LeBron James is averaging 27 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 7.4 assists. However, he is yet to post his career average in a single regular-season game.

For a player flirting with triple-double for almost two decades, continually delivering statlines that would make career nights for most of the guys in the association, this seems hard to believe. But it's true -- a 27-7-7 game still hasn't been recorded in LeBron's career game log.

This year alone, James came close to reaching that threshold on two occasions. On January 13, in a blowout win against the Thunder, James put up 26/6/7. Two weeks later, against the Celtics, he finished 6 points shy of his career average in points despite putting up 7 rebounds and 7 assists.

Regardless of the 27-7-7 game eluding the Lakers superstar, he keeps displaying unprecedented consistency even at age 36. 24 games into the 20/21 NBA season, James is averaging 25.5 PPG, 7.7 RPG, and 7.8 APG, leading the Purple and Gold to an 18-6 record and No.2 seed in the West.

There's no doubt another championship is at the top of LeBron's priority list this late into his NBA career. Matching his career average in a single game is probably the last thing on his mind right now. But the fact he still hasn't done it is mind-boggling.
