Default Lebron shooting stat from a recent article (you may be Surprised!)

Quote:
He crushed the rest of the league in PER last season with a 31.7, just shy of his career high. He shot a ridiculous 56.5 percent from the field. He scored more points in the paint per game than anybody else in the league. He dished out more assists than most point guards. He registered a higher rebound rate than Marc Gasol and Robin Lopez. Defensively, he's tall, quick and strong enough to guard just about anyone in the league, and he almost did.

And if all that wasn't enough, consider this: He now wields one of the most potent jumpers in the league. Only Jose Calderon averaged more points per spot-up play than James, according to Synergy Sports.

Most efficient spot-up players, 2012-13 regular season(Min. 100 plays)

Player Plays Points PPP
Jose Calderon 187 281 1.50
LeBron James 143 195 1.36
Kyle Korver 224 301 1.34
Steve Nash 114 153 1.32
Stephen Curry 226 294 1.30


James' name pops up near the top of all the jump-shot leaderboards for last season. And that includes the unguarded catch-and-shoot category, in which he effectively shot 73.1 percent once you account for the added value of 3s. Only five players were more lethal with open shots. While he couldn't find his shot in the Finals until the very end, he ended up converting 37.5 percent of his 3s in the postseason, which is well above average. (For perspective, Kevin Durant shot 31.3 percent from deep in the playoffs.)

He's an incredible all-around player, gotta give credit where credits due. Hate him and the Heat though.

When you can be used on arguably the quickest player in the league...and the biggest....its not wrong to say:


"he's tall, quick and strong enough to guard just about anyone in the league, and he almost did."

It's not a myth, even though you say it a 100 times. He can guard all of them, from the smallest ones like Parker to 7 footers like Pau Gasol. Only ones he can't guard are guys like Shaq or Hibbert who have too much weight and height on him. But then again, there ain't that many of those guys in the league which makes that statement pretty accurate.

I don't know how anyone can say this with a straight face.

If that was true, we would go from weak era to pathetically weak era.

An era were Hibbert is a "great" center and Lebrick have the most potent jumper in the league and Jr Smith is wins the sixth man of the year. Think about that.

And then his shots starts "betraying" him in the playoffs again, like every year He shot 37% from mid range in the playoffs and hasnt EVER crossed the 40% mark except for a fluke 49% hot stretch in the 2009 playoffs. He can cherry pick to great numbers in the RS all he wants but against playoff defenses he was at a consistent extremely horrible sub-35% before 09, and at a "just" awful 36-38% after 09.

Bu bu but I thought he improved?

If something starts betraying you every post season, maybe you just suck at it. Just a thought.

Interesting, considering he absolutely shut him down whenever he was on him.

The only player Lebron had trouble guarding was George, and it was due to the quick first step. Its a big reason as to why he can't guard Rudy Gay either. He tends to get him a lot too.

People forgot West was playing when Lebron was guarding him.
Dude was quiet.
