How do you average 27/7/7 being unskilled?

Dude might not have terrific footwork, but he doesn't need to. He is as efficient as they come in the post. He decimated OKC in the 2012 from the post without having the prettiest footwork out. He is 6'8 and 265lbs. You people expect everyone to move around like Steph Curry or Dwyane Wade on the court?

No trolling but LeBron is way more physically imposing than Gerald Green, James White, T-mac, and VC. It might be a tad bit of hyperbole to say he is "unskilled". But it is pretty obvious to see that his 27/7/7 averages have a lot to due with his freakish mix of size and athleticism.

No one can seriously argue Lebron has great footwork. Hell, he doesn't even have good footwork.

Lebron and Kawhi both have basic footwork but Kawhi is much more polished and ahead of the curve being in only his 5th year while Lebron didn't have anything resembling a decent post game until his 10th season and even then Lebron didn't have the counters that Kawhi is starting to display as he improves.

Probably doesn't have the best footwork or the best post moves, but people saying he doesn't have any at all are just being ignorant.

leonard's footwork is pretty fcking weak once he faces up the basket.. he knows how to pivot into fadeaways and he can step back to make space... he's good at using his body to protect the ball but that's more body control...

lebron learned how to do these things ten years ago. and anything on the way to the basket lebron is superior by miles. leonard still loses count of his steps and will shuffle or travel to compensate.

but one is in his prime and the other is still developing.

and lebron most certainly doesn't have all-time great footwork. it's just serviceable thanks to his other talents.

Stupid way of evaluating footwork...

Mark, i know who you are, i know your agenda... i dont know why im trying to have an impartial basketball discussion with you when it never worked before....
Dude you could get maybe a couple of vids about Kobe and MJ whole career.

You could get an Oscar nominee 2:00:00 movie about Lebron's footwork for only this season. For his whole career? Better get me James Cameron to be the director because that movie is going to be long as f....

Kawhi, by far. Bron's footwork has always been atrocious, and he's always been the King of travelling his way to the basket.
