His mobility is still excellent for someone of this height and weight. The dude is a freak.

Is he really that much bigger then 09? I mean, he's a lot bigger then his first couple years, but I really don't think he's gotten much if any bigger since he's entered his prime.

I think he's slowed down a little bit. Not really because of muscle, i'm a gym rat/old track star (ok, not really a star but i was decent) and muscle doesn't make you slow down if it's pure muscle and not fat.

I think he's just gotten a little slower due to age and wear and tear on his joints.

That's as a member of the Heat. Still as fast as ever in my opinion, and one of the plays that truly excited me as a Heat fan becoming accustomed to our two new stars that season; even though it was a goaltend.

Hes changed his game up, so all this eye test field reports by posters are useless. We as humans can't tell the difference when its that slight, although we can in patterns, and its obvious his game has changed with his new team.

If you look closely, he and lee started at around same position at the same time.

I'm sure it would make a damn good post if captured at a right angle.

Take into account Lee had forward movement, time of reaction for Lebron, and you notice that at half court Lee had a good 8 foot lead on him. Also the fact Lee could flat out go for the dunk and not slow down, where as Lebron had to make sure not to foul him.

True, not saying he wasn't fast. But there's something more than just speed. Like co-ordination and body control. In short: Freak of nature

I guess he's a little bit slower these days but his speed is still impressive.
