Every season in the NBA, the competition for the scoring champion is fierce. Although this award is not as hard-cored as the MVP, the scoring champion is basically a stable entry into the Hall of Fame and can also win high salaries for themselves, so the players are working hard to win. To say that the scoring king competition was the craziest year, it had to be 2006. As for why you said that, you will understand after reading the top 3 scoring averages. The scoring king competition this year is really a "fairy fight".
3: James has entered the season in 2006, but he has only played for three seasons and he is already a league superstar. During this period, James is still very competitive. He also likes to score points with his opponents. This year he averaged 31.4 points per game, helping the Cavaliers reach the top 4 record in the East. Originally, this was the scoring leader's stats, and this year only ranked third.
2: 2006 is the last season of Iverson's personal peak, because since this year, his state is looking down. At this time, Iverson is still a lonely hero, he is doing his best to help the team into the playoffs. In addition to Webber, the team did not help much. Iverson averaged 33 points per game. The team still failed to make the playoffs.
1: Kobe was really a god-killing mode in 2006, because he completed the 81-point miracle that shocked the past and now. This year Kobe wanted to score, but he couldn't stop it. He conquered his opponent with high scores time and time again. Especially after O'Neal left, Kobe wanted to prove himself more. He maximized his offensive firepower and finished the season with an average of 35.4 points and won the scoring leader. Kobe has given it all. He was selected for a team and a defense at the same time. He wanted to attack and defend. But the team was eliminated by the Suns in the first round of the playoffs.
Regardless of the small ball era, the competition for scoring champions is not as fierce as in 2006. Harden averaged 34.3 points per game this season, and he couldn't win scoring champions in 2006. In that era when positional warfare was the dominant one, it was already very strong to average so many points per game. I don't know when this season of soaring points can happen again!
