LeBron James Has Oddly Never Posted His Career Averages of 27 Points, 7 Assists, and 7 Rebounds in a Single Game in the NBA

James currently ranks third in league history in regular-season points, eighth in assists, 46th in rebounds, and has averaged 27.0 points, 7.4 assists, and 7.4 rebounds over the course of his career.
