Yeah.. because he's really been strugling with those extra 15 pounds the last few years...

You don't fix something that isn't broken.

at this thread...dude is playing at an all time great level, and some d-bags are wondering what is wrong with him LOL. Do you know how many back to back games Cavs had so far? Maybe he is just saving energy and playing smart basketball? Or is that so hard to grasp...

Can people STFU about Lebron's explosiveness and stop pretending like they're experts about it. He looks the same in the regard and better everywhere else.

If this is what a "troubled with explosiveness" Lebron looks like, then he's still someone I would take over all but about 5 players ever in NBA history. So yeah, he sucks ass.

How many fast break dunks and lay-ups has he blocked this year? I really don't see whatever it is you guys are seeing.

^ Just a couple of days ago..


Can't go all out on dunks anymore and risk injury, he's playing for something this year.. His FG% has been ridiculous this season and is just playing smarter basketball.

I disagree with the premise of this topic. Is LeBron James still the exact same, explosive athlete he was at 19? Maybe he's lost 5-10 percent of that (maybe--if that)), but he's gotten smarter as a basketball player, added to his repetoire, and is still an athletic freak when compared to most everyone else in the league

His head got above the rim on a dunk vs. The bulls.

I don't doubt that at all, but it just seems weird that he'd start to look like he's declining before turning 25...

Did anyone mention anything about him playing bad? Not once was there a mention of him not playing like the best in the league, so your first statement means nothing. About your second point, if you took the time to actually read the first post you would've come across this

I've also noticed that he doesn't seem to try as hard to jump very high, but I'm not sure if I'm right
so clearly that idea was already brought up, and I was asking others for their opinions, you know, how a basketball forum is supposed to operate...

All you have to do is look up LeBron James on youtube and find his dunks from this season to know he didn't lose any vertical. I say he is saving his energy for the dunk contest.
