MIAMI (AP) Attention, Grinnell College basketball office: LeBron James wants the tape from Jack Taylor's record-setting scoring spree.
Or as ``King James'' is now calling Taylor, ``Sir Jack.''
The NBA champion Miami Heat took plenty of notice of Taylor in their shootaround practice Wednesday morning, one day after the Grinnell guard scored a record 138 points in only 36 minutes of playing time against Faith Baptist Bible In Grinnell, Iowa. The Heat called their intern - the day's designated shooter during a defensive drill for the team - ``Taylor'' all morning during practice, and after the session, James was among those weighing in on the significance of the feat.
``It's unbelievable, honestly,'' James said. ``I would like to see the game. I want to see the game.''
Hard to believe, but after one record shooting night, a three-time NBA MVP like James was putting Taylor in the same breath as all-time superstars like Kobe Bryant and Wilt Chamberlain.
``I watched Kobe's game when he had 81,'' James said. ``I watched some of the greatest games ever played when guys scored big numbers. There's two games that I would love to see: One was Wilt, when he had 100, and this kid, I want to see him too. Sir Jack.''
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wasn't sure of the name of the school, but knew plenty about what Taylor had done.
``A lot of us probably wished we were at, Grimmell? Is that where it is? Grinnell?'' Spoelstra said.
James said he doesn't believe he's ever topped 56 points in any game - he scored that many against Toronto in 2005, but didn't remember any game as a young player or high schooler where he had more.
He said he couldn't even manipulate a video game well enough to score 100 points, noting that ``you've got to mess with the rules and the users and all that stuff to get to that.''
