There's a difference between losing it in the 8th season and in the 14th or 15th (and all of those deep playoff runs, finals, etc.). Plus, Kobe came up with great post moves to counter that. What did Lebron do? Just got a bigger head band.

In the last few games he's just missing a lot of layups which he usually makes

bare in mind, there is also another attacker of the rim on the floor and on his team...and both have given up some drives for the other.

meh, wade still drives like all the time. the only times he gave up some drives were in the last seconds/minutes of games for James. which like I said are almost the only moments James will attack the rim.

maybe that's the way they want their team to function...

The only argument for the case is "clutch-ness" and even so I think Lebron is still clutch, just a lil rusty that's all.

Lebron has to be by far the most scrutinized player in NBA history. He hasn't lost the ability to attack the rim in a span of 8 or 9 months. But let's just say that for the sake of argument he has lost the ability to attack the paint. He's shooting the 2nd highest fg% of his career. Then the only conclusion would be that he's settling for more jumpers and his jumper has improved drastically.

Well he's averaging 25 points per game and basically most of those points are with him attacking the paint.

Well if you compare the past seasons to this season, it does seem like LeBron is not dunking it hard as often. Did he really lose some athleticism?

I don't think he would so soon. He's probably playing it safe and conserving.
LeBron.
Wade.
Westbrook.
70% of LeBron's shots are jumpers. Compared to Dwyane Wade and Russel Westbrook, Derrick Rose, he's not attacking the paint as much as they are.

You can't expect him to have that drastic a change in team composition and still play exactly the same way.
