In 2011, LeBron led Miami in ppg, fga and posted a career-best in fg%. He led the league in PER. His game was "flourishing" just fine. Nobody needed to take a "backseat". More importantly, given Wade's injury issues last year, he wasn't capable of doing more than what he did anyway. And that made Miami's playoff run A LOT tougher than it would've been had Wade simply played like he did in 2011. Again, they were doing just fine in '11 with both him and LeBron being the alpha dogs. They would've won a championship with relative ease if not for LeBron's bizarre brain freeze.
