That's because you have no dribble and launching up a 3pter as soon as you get the ball is your only play on the court.

You cant really mirror either, especially not Lebron, he is arguably the most complete player of all time at ~6'9-260 with freakish athleticism playing-guarding all positions... and Curry while being more closer to us mortals with his size/athleticism and hence gamestyle still is arguably the best shooter of all time, you can NEVER get anywhere close to be as good of a shooter as Curry, to get to that level of shooting it still requires something extra, a gift.... and getting anywhere close to what Lebron does is even harder...

You can mirror their gamestyles however, work towards their skillsets & offensive mindsets... which for us mortals, growing up to be normal sized, with normal vertical etc. it will look completely different, especially compared to Lebron....

Its easier for us to try pattern Curry, simple due to his more "normal" size we think we can "play like him"... you know, shooting, ballhandling... makes sense...

But playing "like Lebron" at say 6'0" doesnt make sense even tho it should make perfect sense... the skillset/gamestyle is simply passing, scoring arsenal, defense, doing everything.... but again, at 6'0" it will make you more like Chris Paul, not sure... or something, hard to tell....

Mirroring Lebron's gamestyle/skillset will make you a completely different player at a normal size... with his skillset & offensive mindset (but at more quicker/nimble/agile body at 6'0", laws of nature) there he would be more like Chris Paul/Kyrie/Rondo hybrid or something like that... but you dont think of Lebron when you think of Chris Paul at all, even though thats Lebrons exact skillset (with more scoring skills perhaps and actually Lebron is even more of a skilled passer, perhaps more defense aswell), simply because it all becomes so vividly different exploiting it at 6'9-260 with crazy athleticism....

So, "Mirroring Lebron" would generally mean more like you striving to be the best in your team at everything, being the most versatile/complete, on both ends... well perhaps not literally as example some teammate may be a 85-90% FT & 50% 3PT shooter.... but yea...

Whatever the case may be.. its easier to become a pure shooter....
