LeBron James just submitted his latest application for greatest games of all time. Finishing a surprisingly competitive early March game against the Charlotte Bobcats, James had a final box score worthy of envy; 61 points on 33 shots, 80 percent shooting from deep, 9-12 from the free throw line, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and just two turnovers in 41 minutes of action. James joins Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks as the only player to break 60 points this season, and they are the only two players to do it since Kobe Bryant back in 2009.

It was the latest great game in a long line of great games for the greatest player in the NBA right now. James has been marked for greatness, rightly or wrongly, since he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated as “The Chosen One” back in 2002 as a high school junior. That was the first of 20 SI covers for James, who has averaged two covers a year for his entire NBA tenure. Luckily, for fans of high-level hoops, LeBron has proved to be anything but a style-over-substance superstar. Here are LeBron’s 6 greatest NBA games (so far.)
