Footwork allergic to a ball game breakdown cause it makes Bron look good. Lol.

I've NEVER seen a Bron stan "breakdown basketball" ever in my life.

I'd be willing to bet my life that I'll never see it on ISH or RealGM.

You guys just don't know basketball :(

He only assists on low % jumpers. When they don't make the low% shots, you claim they suck.

If LeBron actually stopped stealing rebounds from his guards/Center, he'd actually be a helluva threat filling in the lane on a fastbreak. This would allow for a better brand of basketball so your hero doesn't have to keep losing so much.

You don't notice the cycle because you've been excusing his statpadding for so long.

Grant Hill used to get rebounds to sprint across the floor to score. It's what guards and forwards should do.

A great rule of thumb is: "If you're looking to pass - think score."

The lane opens up with you're tryna be aggressive. But Lebron sometimes telegraphs his passes too much because he doesn't put himself in scoring position.

He always walks the ball up like a point-guard that's trying to design a set play but instead he just pounds the ball for 10-15 seconds and passes it off to someone else :oldlol:

It's hard for your best player to be your best facilitator. That's why this whole "pg-era" is fool's gold. Unless you're like Curry and get put into a system where everyone shares the ball, it just isn't a sustainable style of play because it's way too predictable.

And main issue is the best way to circumvent this is a steady diet of pick n' roll (which is what they used to run a lot under David Blatt). But they also had Kyrie back then who ran the high pick n' roll beautifully with Thompson and Lebron, and Lebron ran it with Thompson and Love.

Unfortunately Lebron just isn't the same player anymore. You can see it in his stamina, lack of finishing ability, turnovers (makes more sloppy passes), and defense. He's a better shooter than he's ever been but it just might not be enough.

Pacers in 6.

It's over. :(

He should shoot, but the funnier thing is people in here complaining about it. Acting as if almost 95% of the league doesn't dribble out the clock. Aren't they happier the Cavs have less of a chance of winning anyway if he doesn't get a shot up?

The reality is, the haters on here care more about his stats and wins than the fans do. :oldlol:
