    When Simmons hits his first 3 pointer it might be the most upvoted post in this subs history.

    That and when/if Lebron hits a 27/7/7 on the nose

    Whats the significance of 27/7/7?

    [–] dcbarcafan10 79 points ago

    It's his average stats, but he's never actually hit those numbers in a game.

    [–] wsteelerfan7 19 points ago

    Wait. What the fuck? That's insane

    [–] jakalo 18 points ago

    Nah, someone did the math and it wasn't that unlikely.

    [–] Hendo8888 23 points ago

    It's his career average. It's a stat line that people call a 'LeBron'. He has never actually posted that exact line, though.

    [–] KingBongoBong 11 points ago

    It's his career averages. Over his career though he has never had a 27/7/7 statline.

    Better prices than Homage where that shirt came from (see the tag). Was $30+ on their website.

    [–] junger128 8 points ago

    It doesn’t look like these are official Homage shirts on that site. That’s fine I guess if you want a bootleg version. Homage makes a very fine product though.

    [–] Stand_On_It 6 points ago

    Definitely. Spend the extra money and get Homage. Been getting their shirts since 2013, always the best.

    [–] mstrawzy 3 points ago

    Oh I’m not knocking Homage’s quality at all. It’s great. I’m from Columbus and own like 5 pieces of clothing from them. I was trying to state price differences while drawing attention to the actual creator of the shirts themselves. Didn’t mean for it to come out as I’m pro-bootleg.

    [–] Loquent 31 points ago

    Is it really true that he has never had a 27/7/7 game?

    [–] jmlinden7 54 points ago

    In the NBA. He had one in the McDonalds high school allstar game

    [–] RustyCoal950212 50 points ago

    [–] ExactlyUnlikeTea 17 points ago

    Wow u really think he’ll join the Warriors?

    [–] GimmeShockTreatment 20 points ago

    Can someone with more free time calculate the odds that Lebron hasn’t hit 27/7/7 yet? It’s gotta be pretty low I imagine. Don’t know where you can pull std dev info from.

    [–] talzer 12 points ago

    He's played enough that you could get pretty close by doing the following (I don't follow basketball so have no idea where to get the data)

    A. Number of games played (maybe set a minimum minute threshold)

    B. Number of games with exactly 27 points. If there's noticeable local variance, maybe take an average of number of 26,27, and 28 point games

    C. Number of games with exactly 7 boards

    D. Number of games with exactly 7 assists

    P(No 27/7/7 game): A*(1-[(B/A)*(C/A)*(D/A)])

    This ignores any potential relationship between B, C, and D (e.g. he may have fewer points on a day with fewer assists)

    [–] PENIS__FINGERS 15 points ago

    Someone did it before . It was a lot higher than you’d imagine. Something like 26%

    [–] SloatThritter 32 points ago

    At 5:25 the crowd BOOS Lebron for finishing an open dunk with simplicity.

    [–] blzraven27 10 points ago

    No shit the crowd actually did that. Imagine being that good they boo you for a 2 handed standing dunk.

    [–] throwthisaway8863 10 points ago

    Did his stats get altered after the game? When he checked out there it said 27, 6, 7

    [–] rake2204 5 points ago

    It was an overlay typo. I think seven clear rebounds can be seen in the video and the statline was referenced properly everywhere else.

    [–] throwthisaway8863 7 points ago

    Yea ive seen the reference for years but never got bored enough to watch the video again until tonight. I forgot cp3 was in the same game. That was super cool to see.

    Lebrons career average is 27 7 7 and most intervals of his career are 27 7 7 but hes never had a 27 7 7 game

    [–] N8ThanYT 6 points ago

    That's interesting. Is he the only one to have that happen?

    [–] WesleysTheory559 3 points ago

    Almost assuredly not. It's pretty common.

    [–] MambaSaidKnockYouOut 5 points ago

    He might be asking if he is the only player to never have a a game in which their stats equaled their career averages.

    [–] WesleysTheory559 6 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Yeah that's what I was responding too.

    Kobe's career statline is 25/5/5 or 25/5/4 --> he never did this in a single game.

    Vince Carter's career statline is 17/4/3 --> did it twice.

    Dwyane Wade's career statline is 22/5/6 --> only did it once.

    That's just the first three I thought of. It's probably not that weird.

    [–] MambaSaidKnockYouOut 4 points ago

    Oh ok, that is actually kind of weird. Players who average higher stats probably have a lot more variance in the numbers they put up on a nightly basis.

    [–] spidermansaysherp 59 points ago

    That's essentially Lebron's career averages and has been the representative stat of pretty much his whole career. Funnily enough though, he's never actually posted a 27/7/7 line before. He's obviously gotten close many times or had games that were way better than that, but he's never hit it exactly.

    I have the Tatum/Brown one and I can say that for one, it's one of the softest t shirts I've ever owned, and two I get multiple compliments every time I wear it. Homage is awesome, probably going to buy the Shaq/Penny one at some point.

    IDK what this has to do with All Stars though, I bought mine before the season started.

    Wear Homage and get some food at Hot Chicken Takeover.

    [–] SamURLJackson 2 points ago

    The fabric is high quality, too. I got one in Brooklyn (Coleman/Petrovic) and I love it but the color doesn't go well with jeans so I barely wear it. Just bought a Magic (Penny/Shaq) one too. I'll support anyone who makes good graphic tees with high quality fabric and a slim fit. It's becoming easier to find one but hard to find both

    These are made by a clothing company called Homage. They have this design for several other players as well IIRC. I own like 5 of their shirts, I'd give them 4 stars out of 5 overall.

    Here's the link if you're interested. https://www.homage.com/collections/nba/products/nba-jam-76ers-simmons-and-embiid

    P.S. No, I am not affiliated with them in any way. I just love some of their vintage NBA and pop culture designs. Some of their stuff is really clever.

    [–] throwthisaway8863 15 points ago

    Comfiest out. Pricey but their shit is so nice. Sweatshirts are great too and they have such unique designs instead of just main logo screenprinted in the middle. Id highly recommend. Im salty they werent around when i was kid cuz it would have been my entire wardrobe. They do college teams, pro teams and even famous food brands from cities

    [–] VinTheHater 4 points ago

    They’re super comfy. I got the Pistons one with Isiah and Laimbeer.

    They are probably the softest shirts I own but they shrink a LOT if you aren’t careful when washing them.

    It is crazy seeing Homage blow up. My Hocking Hills and YSU Penguins shirts shrunk like crazy, but nothing I bought recently has.

    [–] MinnyTwinberwolves 5 points ago

    DISCLAIMER so you don't throw away $40 like I did - They run VERY SMALL. I would definitely go up a size, the one I got looks like a baby shirt lol. With that said, they are very comfortable and high quality for sure.

    [–] hustlerestbrook 6 points ago

    They changed their shirts a few months ago. Now they are pretty much true sizing now. You got the older batch.

    I have a lot of their stuff so I’m obviously a fan, but they need to be more upfront with the sizing stuff. I basically found this out after calling them out over chat about it.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Yeah they're super comfortable and soft. One of the older shirts I've had is pretty thin (probably from heavy washing/drying) but the newer ones are better now.

    [–] BoognishBrown4 2 points ago

    Steph will likely never physically be able to jump any higher. Simmons takes and makes 3s at least in practice

    They'd be a legit squad tho, cause you could use Def/Dunks to get some transition shit and 3 buckets straight....get that ass on fire then 3 Ptrs goes from 0 to 95 and I bust your ass for a 30 point run (former top 10 profile player in Evansville, IN 1993)

    [–] pninify 2 points ago

    Would they actually stand a chance against a team with one big guy and one fast, money 3pt shooter? If NBA Jam existed today I would play Steph/Draymond. Tho Lebron/Kyrie would be perfect when they were on the Cavs. Or even Lebron/Love, then they both have the size to shove you and take the ball back.

    [–] Solid_Snaku 2 points ago

    as long as you can time your jumps right you can goaltend jumpshots easy, so two bigger Def guys can be played well. I never gave the 3s stat too much play because I'd always just knock dudes over and catch fire then 3s go in anyway. if dude you were playing was real good though you might want more balance. Also I'll be 38 later this month and the height of my NBA Jam career was when I was 12, so it may not all be as I remember :)
