Re: Which duo would you rather have?
When has Lebron played off the ball in his entire career? When did Shaq become a pick and roll player?.
2-3 zone denial for Shaq (The fact that this was illegal for Shaq's prime was a huge factor in his dominance). Now the argument can be made that this would let Lebron do his thing on the perimeter.
It gives him more space.
On the perimeter.
The Lane is closed down here and he isn't going to score as much points on the outside. His mid range and outside game ain't bad but it's completely broken when those are the shots he's forced to take.
Don't mistake me for saying this is going to stop them. It won't. But if I can instantly think of a strategy that's going to make things difficult...then chances are coaches are going to go to work.
