Cam Thomas went off again on Monday night, lighting it up for 47 points in 38 minutes in an eventual loss to the Clippers at the Barclays Center.

For Thomas, coming off a 44-point night back on Saturday to lead Brooklyn to an epic comeback over the Wizards, he became the second-youngest player in NBA history to have consecutive 40-point games, trailing only LeBron James.

Asked about being in historic company with King James, the 21-year-old showed his true allegiance when it comes to the game’s legends.

“For real? That's great company. I'm glad I have my name mentioned with that guy, even though I'm a Kobe guy,” Thomas said, as he was coincidentally wearing a Bryant t-shirt.

“If you said Kobe I would have been more - nah, I’m kidding.”

Jokes aside, to be named alongside arguably the greatest player in the game’s history is not something Thomas will take lightly.

“It’s still great company,” Thomas said. “LeBron is about to break the all-time scoring record…I’m just glad to have my name mentioned with him this young. Hope I can keep it going and keep having my name mentioned with those guys.”
