I remember going to some of his high school games and back then he was playing against a bunch of 5'10 players so he could bust jumpers whenever he wanted, but now he doesn't realize that he can't.
At the game my gf kept asking "what's wrong with him why does he keep shooting??" And i really didn't have an answer lol...at the end of the game he just said **** it and started driving, and he didnt miss another shot the last few minutes. If he did this all the time instead of settling i guarantee the Cavs would be 10 times better and would probably be #1 or 2 in the East.
You guys don't get it. The rest of the Cavs are mostly awful. It's amazing their record is what it is. Defenses are keying on Lebron more and more and it's wearing him down. That has a lot to do with his scoring being down, and his jumpers being up.
Sure, he can still drive to the hoop, but it's like twice as hard as it was last year, and he has a third less energy, because he's not getting help consistently.
When are you people going to wake up and realize one person can't win a title on their own no matter how damn dominating they are. This isn't 1960, where you can get a giant like Wilt Chamberlain and suddenly you have an instant contender.
This team is going nowhere, until either Danny Ferry and Mike Brown leave, or get their acts together. One or the other. And Eric Snow has GOT to go. You can't be a playoff contender with your starting point guard averaging less than 5ppg and 5 apg. He has to do one or the other.
And that's a fact. Even when Philly made the finals, Snow averaged 13ppg.
