Difference styles .. but to be honest, LeBron's range is detriment to his game ..


He still needs to improve his outside shots...


We'll wait and see how the finals turn out to be. Heat losing this year, will give people break from their delusional stans ..

It's pretty crazy that this guy is supposed to be the best player in the world (and he is), yet the defense is giving him essentially open gym jumpers and he scared to shoot them.

Boggles my mind.

We have to start shooting the jumpers and making them. Myself included.

So much disrespect being shown to Lebron, the amount of space Kawai gives him is hilarious, Lebron is scared, scared and confused

This, I watched like 40 regular season heat games.. James' shot was money. He is a scared little boy.

Was really surprised at the Spurs strategy in defending him, more surprised that it actually worked. I don't remember any NBA star players being defended like this - I mean, even players like Jason Kidd (not known for shooting) during his Nets day was defended well (and even double-teamed) and he still managed to do well.

Maybe, Lebron will probably have one of his break-out night.

The Blazers backed off Jordan and let him shoot. He went HAM.
