Lebron doesn’t know how to adjust in the way that he needs to, it’s not in his game. He’s not a great one one one player, nor is he a great shooter or ball handler, he’s not clutch and doesn’t don’t know when to activate attack mode. He’s made it this far off his athleticism, but he needs to be able to score 40 and 50,

Jimmy outhustled Lebrn, simple as that, he shyed away and gave the shots to his teammates so he won't get blame, very same look during the finals against Dallas, looking for someone else to takeover on clutch moments. Lakers were lucky Dragic and Bam wasn't well last year's finals.

Kd is the best player in the world. The true best player player of this era. They have so many excuses for his failures its unbelievable. He is not clutch and has no killer instinct. Always passin when he should be taking the last shot. Been like this his entire career. Even james harden is better than Lebron.

I think LeBron should do enough to get them to the playoffs, and the work out whatever problems the team may have, the players may have, before the time comes. He shouldn't turn it up and just be playoff LeBron just because he's LeBron. If he is injured, the Lakers are going out the first round if they even make it to the playoffs, even if AD comes back 100%.

I wouldn't say that Lebron should be doing more but rather the supporting cast needs to find a way to contribute more than they have been, that's what should be addressed. Lebron may be shooting 36% from 3-point range as of now, but he's 9-46 from the perimeter in the last 7 games... he needs to get his shot going.

I've said this many times. LeBron needs to modify his game so that when he's off the floor, his teammates can sustain without him. That's the best way the Lakers are gonna turn things around. Outside of that, there's not much else he can do
Rossjyn Fallorina
Rossjyn Fallorina Acum 6 Zile
@Lakers In 5 maybe make his on-the-floor game less reliant on him running the offense? Most of the time it’s him facilitating (when he’s not scoring) - when he’s off the court the team just looks lost since no one runs the show as much as Lebron. They don’t get enough minutes to do that. Rondo worked since he has the IQ and experience.

SAS sound silly. LeBron is 37 years of age and 18 years deep in the NBA. No way he should “do more.” Ask his teammates to do more.’s what SAS loves to do, he’ll setup a narrative that he can later tear down. In this case it’s LeBron doing more. Now, if LeBron does not perform at SAS’s level, he’ll circle back around and use it as a way to offer harsh critique of LeBron.
