Heat fans dominate Twitter as LeBron James scores 61

Shares

The Miami Heat walloped the Charlotte Bobcats. LeBron James stole the show. Par for the course, right?

Not quite.

First LeBron James tied teammate Dwyane Wade’s second-best franchise record of 55 points. Shortly after, he passed Glen Rice’s franchise record of 56 points, set in 1995. 

James also smashed his own personal record of 56 points. He went on to score five more, walking off the court to a standing ovation. 

The NBA has already packaged every field goal in an easy-to-digest video for us to watch his epic night on repeat:

People on Twitter could hardly contain themselves as they watched what might be the best night of James’s career.

It became apparent to fans that James was not just a mere mortal like the rest of us.

If you’ve eliminated all other possibilities, it’s probably the Illuminati.

Even sports pundits were impressed.

At least Bobcats fans had something to look forward to the next day.

And for posterity’s sake, let’s watch those final two field goals again.
