It's hard to find something wrong with a 61-point performance, but Dominique Wilkins managed to nitpick LeBron James' 61-point outburst against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.

Although he gave James a lot of credit, Wilkins was very critical of the Bobcats defense. After all, this is the same team that allowed the Carmelo Anthony to explode for a league-high 62 points earlier this season.

The NBA legend also shared his thoughts on the MVP race:

Kevin Durant did have to play a long stretch without Russell Westbrook, but Dwyane Wade  hasn't exactly been a paragon of health for Miami.

Wilkins later clarified his tweets about LBJ's 61-point night:
