point 1. I could not agree with you guys more on what he needs to improve on next year; jump shots, taking it to the hoop and defense, etc. Except the stamina factor, this guy played football in highschool he got stamina. The guy that said that dont got any facts or is trying to be funny.

Point 2. I could not agree more with the posterizations, I need to be entertained a bit more. dont get me wrong LeBron on delonte, damon etc. was nice but I need a Kobe on Nash or Dwight. Betta yet Wilcox on Mihm.

Point 3. I would like to see LeBron's bad side next year. A few f*@# you's and attitude.

He has to develop a more consistent jumper, stop offensive fouling people to the rim, and stop travelling on game winners. Then he would be much better. (Maybe even start to be in Kobe's league...Maybe).

PS. In his rookie season he use to do these 2 step drop step travels (which the refs didnt call bcause they want him to be the next Jordan) but he stopped... I think.

1st year, had trouble with his jump shot...awkward.

Worked on it in the summer and improved it greatly.

2nd year, worked on his 3 point shot. Now can go to the basket or step back for the three.

This year, I expect him to have worked on his defense.

I think he has been reluctant to play hard defense not because he lacked the desire, but because he did not want to accumulate too many fouls early in the game. Remember, there is no one else that can carry a team. With a year under their belt, a new defensive temperament under Coach Brown, and the continuity of players, the Cavs should show much improvement in the defensive area.

I think we all agree that the team learned an invaluable lesson with the playoff series with Detroit. I think they finally realized how important defense is to building a championship team. With the core of players we now have, new adjustments and added variations to the basic fundamentals of Coach Brown's defense, the Cav's should improve even without additional roster changes.

1- defense
2- more consistent jumper

If he improves this he is hands down the best player in the league.

Talking

Clutch Shooting and/or 'crunch time' shots, he seemed a little tentitive on game deciding shots. Agreed that stamina is not an issue but I think the real issue is him being #2 in MPG, Mike Brown needs to ease off the court time for LBJ. Not so much that the average spectator would notice but maybe in the area of 2-3-4 minutes, not much but it all adds up for a better post season. Lebron is young and it won't affect his playing ability or stamina right now but as the years go on he will notice it, leaving a little left in the tank each game will help the Cavs in the long, long run.

Oh and yes, the defence needs a little work (not much mind you!!)
