Nope, it's not natural to want to get high efficiency shots and set up players. Everyone's gotta play hero ball like GawdBe and score 30 points on 25 shots.

Lebron was just trying to copy what David West did to them the other night, when he went 12 for 15 for 30 points. West did it on the champs though.

Only perimeter player that shoots less that Lebron from the perimeter... Landry Fields.

I'm not faulting him, i'm faulting you slobbering over him being a perimeter player.

Haslem 18 footer or lebron from 20? He's not going to make the right basketball play.. He's going to do whatever gets him the best stat. Pass to batter? Worse that happens is a miss, no assist, and no decline in field goal percentage. Shoot it himself when it's not a layup? That could fvck up his fg and is the worst case scenario in his decision making process.

Lebron isn't playing natural bball.. He's fitting his play around individual numbers.. Passing up shots that would give his team an even bigger edge on purpose to protect a number.

And I remember when pauk was saying taking a half counter at the buzzer could only result in a negative outcome. For winning? Nah.. For lebron's stat sheet? Well that's all that matters to both of them.
You make sound like getting a lay up is so easy... You must really diminish Shaq and Wilt's career going by your logic? You do know he drove the rim to get his points right? Please stop acting like you know anything about basketball or even watched the game.

@tomhaberstroh LeBron's now shooting 55.5 percent on the season. Over half his shots are jumpers.

Only the dumber Kobe fans criticize LeBron for this because they define greatness by how many turn around 3's over 4 defenders you hit in your career. Things like smart shot selection don't even enter the ranking process. I've never seen a player get criticized for not taking contested shots I don't see the logic.

Yes let's all be amazed on Lebron's numbers for a perimeter player when only Landry Fields shoot less from the perimeter.

Oh Look he is less efficient that Melo from the perimeter, you know that guy heat fans keep calling inefficient.

B-ball reference actually lists Lebron as a pf this season. 82games suggests that he's played more minutes at the pf position than anything else. Yahoo sports has him listed as just a forward with no specification as to whether it's pf or sf. He actually vacillates between the 3 and 4 and honestly is neither just a perimeter nor a post player. He's more a hybrid.
