Not everyone was bowled over by LeBron James' incredible 61 point explosion against the Charlotte Bobcats, NBA legend Dominique Wilkins took to twitter to explain why he wasn't that impressed.

The Hall of Famer went on a tweeting spree Tuesday morning to explain why LeBron's career night wasn't as remarkable as it is believed to be.

Firstly 'Nique explained: "No denying he put on a shooting display. He was hot. Let's not forget, he was playing the Bobcats. A sub 500 team w(ith) a matchup nightmare."

Before adding "Where is the Defense? The Bobcats put up 107 points in a defensive display of basketball. Offensively who was there to make Bron work on D."

Wilkins seems to suggest that praise should have been targeted elsewhere on the night, in fact he believed the real star of the game was the Bobcats center Al Jefferson.

This is what he tweeted: "Why are we not talking about Al Jefferson and the MONSTER night he had 38 and 19! Yes, like I said, Bron got hot & put on a shooting clinic."

The 'Human Highlight Reel' continued to tweet about the lack of defence shown by the Bobcats and that he doesn't believe that this game edges LeBron ahead of Kevin Durant in the race for MVP honours.

James' fans rushed to his rescue and began tweeting the ex-Hawks star, the firestorm of tweets began and Wilkins had to respond to the influx of comments he was receiving.

He said: "Calm down people. Not taking away from a great OFFENSIVE night from one of the greatest the game has seen. He shot the lights out!"

'Nique must've really provoked a reaction on twitter as he felt the need to continue "Man, some very sensitive Bron fans out there. My goodness!"

So what have we learnt from this twitter episode.

Firstly, Dominique Wilkins seems to be a very tough man to please, not even a Miami Heat scoring record will get you his approval.

Secondly, think about what you say on Twitter about LeBron James, he has some loyal fans out there that will passionately defend him to the extreme.
