(In other NBA news, Dallas Mavericks players vowed earlier this month not to shave until the team reaches .500. The Mavs are currently 23-29 - I think we're talking Rip Van Winkle beards here.)
Of course, LeBron still has only one NBA title - heck, he trails Robert Horry by six rings - so we can't crown King James the best ever yet.
Alas, LeBron's 30-60 streak finally ended just before the all-star break. Against the Thunder, LeBron had 39 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists, but he made only 14 of 24 field goal attempts.
However - and I'm proud of myself, because I did a little independent research here - it was his seventh straight game scoring at least 30 points and shooting 58 percent or better, which is a record.
Ask The Slouch: Special Papal Edition
Q. Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down because he says he's just too old and tired for the job. Will you know when it's time to hang up the remote, or will they have to carry you out on your La-Z-Boy? (Jim Cataldi; Pittsburgh)
A. As long as Costco carries Pabst Blue Ribbon, I will answer the TV bell till kingdom come.
Q. As Jerry Jones has a God complex, should the Vatican appoint him pope? (Bob Johnson; Crownsville, Md.)
A. I am reminded that Rob Ryan, upon being hired as defensive coordinator in 2011, called the Cowboys "God's team," and, well, God fired him after two seasons.
Q. Now that the Vatican is looking for a new pope, should they go with a high-priced veteran or just stick with the draft? (Peter Paganussi; Oakton, Va.)
A. Pay the man, Shirley.
