Are we still pretending that LeBron can't shoot? Really? Pretty pathetic.
I wouldn't go this far. Lebron could really stand to improve his shooting. If he had Vince Carter's jumper, but played the same way he does now, he could be in GOAT discussions. People would be making Lebron or Bird? posts.
I don't know what the stats are, but the fact is Lebron's jumper is marginal. Has nowhere near the consistency and touch you want.
Still the best player in the world and everything, and this idea that he passes up shots in the clutch is ridiculous, but his J sucks. It's better than Rondo and Wall and Wade, but worse than almost every other top perimeter player's.
Of course, if he had a great J, he'd be more tempted to settle for it, which nobody wants. Except fans of opposing teams.
