Default why lebron james is an elite catch and shoot player

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWvTypNPWpc

but let ish tell you he can't shoot and scores only on layups and dunks. one of the best catch and shoot players in the league trailing a bunch of pure shooters like jose, nash and curry. the second best catch and shoot player from the three, only behind ashton kutcher.

You have to take these statistics into context of each of these player's playstyle.

Not saying that Coach Nick is wrong when saying that Lebron is a good catch and shoot player, because he's usually wrong about everything, but I definitely wouldn't classify him as elite.

Clicked the link, saw it was a Coach Nick video. Closed the tab, and did not read a single word of the OP.

he's actually a very good catch and shoot player. He's shoots better than he does off the dribble because he's so indecisive. If you watch LeBron it's like he's always fighting an internal battle on whether to shoot or drive and it messes up his rhythm.


I don't know how many times I can scream at the TV telling him to shoot the ball. Defenders be sagging of him so much. He gets the ball and dribbles for like 5 seconds trying to make up his mind on what he's going to do and then finally he shoots it...when he should have just shot the ball immediately!!! Too much airspace not to

He's good and also underrated in that aspect, but I wouldn't call him elite. And his off-ball game is not good.

Every perimeter superstar should be able to catch and shoot while open. The difference between Lebron doing that once per game and guys like Korver, Kerr etc is that Lebron and other perimeter stars have to dribble more than just stand in a corner and so Lebron receiving open shots is pretty rare.

Aside from that Lebron is no off the ball player by default. He doesn't roam around enough, doesn't run through sets of screens and he isn't unimportant enough on offense to be left alone at the 3 waiting for an kickout pass.
