Still needs to improve his shot a bit, something like 50%FG, 36-38% 3pt, 80% FT.

But obviously the main thing he needs to do is become more consistent on defense, though it should be understood that this will not be his main focus and shouldn't be.

His jumpshot has improved greatly, but he could be a little more consistent with it. Improve on the defense end. DEFINITELY improve the free throw shooting. There are times when he should really be driving to the hole instead of shooting the jumper, when he knows he can get to the hole. Maybe that's just a mind thing, but it would be nice if he would take it to the basket more when he knows he can and needs to.

dude needs to be more aggressiving defensively, that would make him clearly more dominant.

Plus I'm not sure if he realizes, but for a SF, he's chizzeled and is much stronger than a lot of swingmen in the NBA, can overpower them, he should use that to his advantage, makes his jumpshot and drive that much more dangerous

He will be the MVP next year... He has the anticipation to be a great defenders its just gonna take some time. I think we all forget that this kid didn't even attend college so he is still unpolished. Hands down, the best player in the NBA and the sky's the limit

my biggest gripe with Lebron is that he settles WAY too much for the outside shot when he can clearly get to the hole at will. He takes so many ill advised jumpers that it is an almost constantly frustrating thing to watch. TO's must be limited, although he handles the ball a lot, he gambles with the "thread the needle" type of passes when the situation doesn't neccessarily warrant such a play. He also must exert more energy on the defensive end because he has the ability and awareness to be a great defender. I believe that he will improve on all of the above for next year.

The guy was 2nd in the league in minutes per game in the regular season and he averaged something like 47 mpg in the playoffs. If he had stamina problems, he would have probably died around Game 3 of the Washington series. Instead, he was making game-winning shots.

Get a clue.
