Default Lebron is 2-27 from outside the paint in the Finals...

0-10 tonite on jumpers

people talk about him not getting to basket because of extra defenders... But truth is they are giving him an 8 foot cushion and he is still scared and unable to shoot... 2 for 27 is just freakin horrible with all the open looks on jumpshots the Cavs are giving him. Does Bron take any Blame for not taking what the defense is giving him and making open jumpers??

People think James is a jump shooter, when he is not.


Examples of Jump shooters, Bryant, Gordon, AI etc.

Thats a heck of a stat. LeBron hasn't played well so far in the finals but he hasnt had any help either. Just needs to keep working though. His jumper could do with some work but he could very easily get hot next game.

Hey you better watch out. LeBron is already getting MJ status around here. Point out on flaw and you're gonna get flamed by someone.

that's the difference between Wade and Lebron. When the playoffs come, Wade's shooting makes him almost unguardable.

Lebron is still very young. he still has ALOT of improving to do with his game. the problem they are having is that the spurs are leaving illgauskas, varejao open and daring them to take shots. they are doubling lebron every chance they get. lebrons confidence is very low because he cannot do the things he normally gets to do. the spurs have taken him out of his comfort zone.

if he had another player to help keep the defense honest the spurs would be forced to play lebron one on one and he can continue to do as he pleases, but his teammates are just not showing up...and since teflon don brought him in this thread, dont know why, but you can make this exact same case for kobe. he needs another player to help keep the defense honest.

Lebrons teammates have nothing to do with Lebron being 2-27 from outside the paint. They are giving him 6-8 feet and daring him to shoot... Thats all on Lebron...

LeBron is a 4 YEAR VETERAN. Enough of this 22 year old and he's "young" nonsense.

Oh and stop making excuses for his sorry performances. Just 4 games ago after scoring 48 points.....this guy was being anointed as the G.O.A.T.

you cant learn and master the entire game in 4 years. and iam not making excuses. iam explaining my point of view.

Lebron is having bad shooting nights, but lets not forget who is guarding him: a two time DPOY runner up who is also a first team all defender, Bruce Bowen. its not like he is being guarded by some scrub. Bruce does a good job of harrassing lebron and lebron never gets into his comfort zone. by the time lebron gets some rhythm going its too late.

I dont care if freakin Michael Jordan in his prime is guarding me....If he steps off me 8 feet on his heels and dares me to shot then the miss is on nobody but me. MJ would have no effect on the shot.

Bowen is not effecting Bron when he is giving him an 8 foot cushion and daring him to shoot. The only thing effecting Lebron is the lack of time in the gym on his jumper.

Im not expecting him to master the game...im asking him to make a freakin open 20 foot jumpshot....That is hardly mastery...And there have been tons of 22 year players who have shown the ability to hit those shots.

yeah...being 22yrs old justifies shooting 2-27 in the finals, not to mention as an overrated overhyped superstar.

lebron is still very good. still very young. not a legitimate excuse. thanks.

and yes the cavs are gonna be sweep.

Didn't Deron Williams just abuse Bowen during the Jazz series? What's he doing that LeBron isn't? I'm not trying to hate on Bowen or anything I'm just trying to figure out why LeBron who is so much bigger and stronger just doesn't post up on Bowen. Whenever he posts up it isn't to score but to look for a kick-out pass to a teammate that is just going to clank the shot. LeBron has plenty of opportunities to score on Bowen but he just isn't getting it done.

true, but his jumper has been suspect from the beginning. he has worked on it but it still hasnt been as consistant. i dont mind him shooting 2-27 though. works out well for me. :)

So now his age is an excuse? Everyone wants to use it to say how good he is(He is clearly not the best 22 year old, just like he wasnt the best at 20 and 21 either).

Sure he is young, but his team is there and playing. If he shows up his age is a positive. LeBron needs to lift, his teammates are all going to lift with him, it is what being the star entails. He has been flat, his team has been flat. Pistons series was the same, as soon as Bron got going, whole team did, well except Larry Hughes.
