LeBron doesn't draw out the best in most players and Lue is just a face on the bench so LBJ can run things how he wants. Most players look a lot more pedestrian when playing with LeBron, it's not a new thing, it's been a good 10+ years of us seeing it happen to various players.
You want to talk about garbage, talk about LBJs ability to adapt to his decreasing speed and athleticism. His only real move is to put his head down and drive like a bull to the basket and that just isn't efficient anymore.
He's a better shooter now.
He can still get to the basket and dunk on people-He conserves it.
He's still a great finisher without jumping 3 feet in the air.
He's definitely adjusted. Lebron at this stage of his career is like a PF. He's a little slower now but he's stronger.
