Lebron James improves his shot

If you’ve been watching Lebron James this season, you’re seeing an all-time great actually improve his game. Lebron is shooting the ball so much better this season, and you see a greater emphasis at times with posting up and using the fade-away jumper. And then you see him hitting his threes.

This article explains how Lebron has committed himself to improving his shot. The results have been impressive – “This season he is shooting 58.5 percent from the field, 42.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.2 percent from the foul line — all career-bests.”

I think having Kyle Korver as a teammate has helped as well. Lebron was always the hardest worker on the team, but now he has Korver as well – someone who is obsessive about working on his game and his shot.

Kyrie Irving and the Warriors

Kyrie Irving did it again on Christmas day, and the Golden State Warriors have to be thinking about how they can stop this guy in crunch time. And that’s after dealing with Lebron James and Kevin Love as well.

For all the hype about Kevin Durant, we’re seeing the Cavs playing together like a real team, and that has to be scary for the Warriors and the rest of the NBA.

Kyrie Irving vs Dwyane Wade

The folks at First Take posed an interesting question the other day by asking whether Kyrie Irving or Dwyane Wade was the better teammate for Lebron James.

Both are great players, and both were great teammates, and your answer will likely depend on which traits you value more.

I’ll side with Kyrie Irving at this point, as his game compliments Lebron’s game perfectly with his ability to hit three-pointers and take on late-game shots. Wade was incredible as well, but he and Lebron have similar games.

New Nike ad from Lebron James

Riding the wave of his championship with the Cavs and his epic block against Andre Iguodala and the Golden State Warriors, Lebron James and Nike are out with a new ad that relishes that moment.

How good with the Warriors be with Kevin Durant?

Kevin Durant has declared his independence and taken his talents to Oakland. He’ll sign a two-year deal with the Golden State Warriors in an attempt to form a super-team and finally win a title.

I don’t blame Durant for leaving, it’s his decision, yet I also feel bad for the fans in Oklahoma City. As a Cavs fan I know how they feel. But I am a little confused by this decision, as Durant had a very good team in OKC with a clear shot at getting back to the Finals. He clearly didn’t have to leave, which makes this even more painful for OKC fans.

Many assume that Durant and the Warriors will be unbeatable, but how many scorers can a team accommodate? We’ve seen Kevin Love and Chris Bosh make real sacrifices to win a title in a Big Three environment. Who will make the sacrifices here? Who takes the big shot at the end of the game? Durant thrives on ISO basketball. What happens now?

Chemistry is critical in basketball, so now we’ll have to see what kind of chemistry develops in Golden State.

Also, the Warriors will have to shed salary in order to make this happen, so say good bye to players like Andrew Bogut and Festus Ezeli. Who will play center now for the Warriors? How will they handle bigger teams? Will Draymond Green wear down as he’s forced to handle the load against big centers over a long season? The starting five of the Warriors looks like a dream team, but there’s so much more that goes into winning a title.

In many ways this is great for the NBA, driving some serious buzz heading into next season. Lebron James and the Cavs can play the role of underdog yet again. It should be fun to watch!
