LeBron didn't really have a triple double

LeBron James probably wouldn't have risked life and limb diving for his 10th rebound Wednesday night -- the rebound that completed the first 50-point triple double since Kareem in 1975 -- if he'd known that it really was his ninth rebound.

Check out the proof here: Despite the official scorer giving this rebound to LeBron, it actually should've been credited to Ben Wallace.

I'm checking to see if the league office can and will review such statistical shenanigans. If so, Kareem's milestone is safe.

Sorry to let the facts get in the way of a good story.

LeBron didn't really have a triple double

The guy of the original article that Berger ripped off was praising Kobe Bryant for his 61 point, 3 assist, 2 turnover, 0 rebound night a few days ago. Does this really come as a surprise that they will be going after LeBron James for the stat guy making a 50/50 call? Either way, LeBron had 8 more assists = at least 16 points, same on turnovers, and 9 or 10 more rebounds. Last time I checked, 52 + 16 = 68 and 61 + 6 = 67. LeBron took more shots, but they were pretty much even. Of course, they were playing a much softer squad than say Michael Jordan played against, but that is besides the point. LeBron has the Lakers/the Kobes at home, so let's see him get the triple-double with 50 points on them. Then, maybe just maybe, writers like this will go back into hiding.

Ben Wallace never had control of the ball, so its just something for you to blog about. Main thing is your an idiot, and your columns suck.
