He makes one backdoor cut, and one "catch and shoot" on the perimeter which he actually still put the ball down to dribble, and one great off-ball slash the entire game:

The rest of his plays (the overwhelming majority of baskets) were what he always does (albeit does great) - which is methodical, slow on the dribble decisions before the move is made (I'm not saying he's slow because once he moves he's quick, it's the decision that was slow). He's good at it. But it is totally opposite what a traditional shooting guard does. And the devils advocate to this playstyle is, that it takes up a ton of shot clock and can make teammates stagnate which has happened on a lot of LeBron teams over the years.
Did you really just use the best scoring game of LeBron’s entire career as “proof” of your point? He was absolutely on fire, of course he’s gonna get to do what he wants a lot.

I watched LeBron in Miami a lot, especially 2012 where I watched almost every game. He was and remains a great cutter (doesn’t do it much now but he’s still great at it) and he spotted up a decent amount in Miami as well. Them’s the facts.

It's easier to show 1 game with triple the possessions than post 3 games for you and expect you to watch them.

That's how he played in Miami - he still did most of his work on ball even in Miami, he did a few (very few) off ball cuts - by no means was it ever his bread and butter. Nothing wrong with me sharing the 61 point game to make this point.

James won't slow down because his teammates will get better and the Lakers Defense will get better and their offense will get better and they will start destroying teams and then the stats will go down because he's on the bench in the 4th against lesser teams. and that's great because he will need the rest because of his age.

I would like to see what Magic and the Lakers would've done in today's NBA against these same teams destruction every night by 20.

Magic wouldn't be stopped and the Lakers would run everyone into the ground.

Magic wasn't a very good shooter himself.
