Default Is LeBron James still coasting?

I had been under the impression that he has been coasting this season and he'd turn it on probably with a month left of the regular season to be peaking just in time for the playoffs. I'm not saying he's coasted every minute of every game this season but I'll say a majority of the minutes in a majority of the games. I haven't watched a ton of Heat games this season for that reason. For those who have, do you feel he's still coasting or has he turned it up already?

What about the game before last night? Like is there a trend or whatever or do you think last night was just because it was a nationally televised game?

No the heat turned it up starting with the KNicks game. Any loses and wins now were trying.

He is not coasting, if anything he was taking it easy on defense this season, but offensively, I don't think so.

How long ago was that? See if he and the heat actually crank it up right now then it makes no sense at all to me. Are they decreasing Allen, Battier, and Haslem's minutes and playing Beasley and Oden more minutes? I just don't see why they'd crank it up already. At least wait until after the break.

It's very simple.

Good game = not coasting, but not really trying
Great game = trying
bad game = coasting

They had to get going on their six game road trip so they started early.

You can tell by Spolestra no longer playing the scrubs. Even Beasley.

Nah cause I've seen him playing hard and still have a bad game more than once this season. I'm not one of those kind of fans.

that Utah game he wasn't coasting, I don't think he's coasting anymore. I think this is the time of year where they start tightening up the ship on defense and start gaining momentum into the playoffs.

Man I thought Beasley would be a major role for them off the bench. How's Shard been doing?

He doesnt play either. Spolestra likes a short rotation unless Wade is not playing. Which sucks because Beasly had potential.
