MIAMI (AP) - After winning his third MVP award, second Olympic gold medal and first NBA championship, LeBron James said he wanted to get even better.
Seems like he's done just that.
James is shooting a career-best 56 percent this season, including a torrid 79 percent in his last 111 minutes on the court with the Miami Heat, who lead the Eastern Conference standings and have won nine of their last 11 games.
He's averaging 26.9 points this season. According to STATS LLC, only five players in NBA history have averaged that many points while shooting at least 56 percent.
Maybe that's why Heat guard Dwyane Wade marvels when talking about James' play this season, saying ``every year, it seems like he does the amazing.''
