Default Is Lebron James shooting percentages overrated?

I've heard him get a lot of praise and also lot of heat (no pun) over his shooting %'s.

Not sure if it's a good or bad thing anymore that he's shooting nearly 60/50/80 from the field.

So is his FG% a good thing or a bad thing? Explain.

Not one single person has complained about his fg%. He may get heat time to time for passing up decent shots but no one has ever spoken negatively about his actual fg%. A high fg% is never bad.

How could putting up 26 points on 60-49-80 possibly be a bad thing?

It's a terrible thing. Fewer misses = fewer rebounds. Rebounds win championships.

It's a bad thing. He should be shooting 40/30/60. I don't get how you don't get it. Are you even a bball fan?

This. LeBron is both the most ball dominant player of all time and the most spoon fed player in the league.
