Lebron isn't a quick-hitter scorer because he doesn't have a great jumpshot.
He can't just come down and start jacking jumpers like Kobe or MJ did - he doesn't get hot and force the opposing coach to call timeouts and shit, whereas MJ/Kobe did all the time ..
every game the opposing coach would call a timeout because MJ/Kobe got hot and now the coach must start planning double teams against them.. the whole team would get juiced when they got hot...
this happened every game for Kobe and MJ, but almost never for lebron.. Coaches want
the ball in Lebron's hands like SVG said, because it's easier to defend the basic 1 ball-dominator and 4 shooter setup than zippy ball movement created by a double team... And since Lebron's jumper doesn't get hot, there's no need to double team him like MJ or Kobe... Just let him dribble away to his heart's content (he thinks he's controlling the game, but he's actually being
controlled and exploited at the championship level)
Ultimately, it was fun watching MJ and Kobe because you knew they'd get hot and the opposing coach would have to call timeout and start doubling them - it was standard every game and as a fan you'd look forward to this break in the game as a sign that they were "taking over"
But heck, just look at the kind of jumpers Lebron takes - it's nothing like MJ and Kobe - can you even imagine him attempting a floating jumper like the one MJ took over Ehlo?... He doesn't have the touch, the aggressiveness, or the sheer jumpshooting skill to execute tough jumpers like that.. He needs a lot more setup time...
MJ, Kobe, and Bird were just a lot better and their teams were much tougher to defend - their jumpshooting and off-ball play imposed a much tougher routine of movements that the defense had to go through - the defense was on their heels more, and ultimately got worn down so their own attack wasn't as strong.. whereas teams get comfortable defensively against lebron, and start going off offensively... again, Lebron's style doesn't win the attrition battle against the best teams
Btw, Lebron's style doesn't work against the Spurs (lebron is 1-2 against them).... it works even worse against the warriors (1-3), or the Mavs (0-1), or Dwight (0-1)... But yes, it worked once when the series alpha got suspended and Kyrie went apeshit over an injured (or choking) league MVP... Yes, everyone has one-offs where everything comes together perfect ..
... But the reality is that SVG wanted
the ball in Lebron's hands - he preferred lebron's extra dribbling and he didn't have to worry about lebron getting hot/the team getting juiced - lebron needs time to drive or shoot, and SVG loved that.. so did the defense
