View Full Version : Lebron James tinkering with new signature move.

not sure if you guys read this, but LeBron has been working this offseason on a few moves down in the post, including Kareem's Sky Hook!



It is becoming apparent that LeBron James won't rest until he's channeled every Hall of Famer's signature move.

Last year it was Hakeem Olajuwon's "Dream Shake." This year it seems that James wants to add Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's sky hook.

That shot was devastating enough to make that Hall of Famer the game's all-time leading scorer.

James tells ESPN.com's Michael Wallace that since he plans to be down on the blocks "even more this year" that he "might as well keep getting more comfortable."

And if developing a near un-blockable shot isn't scary enough for the rest of the NBA, James said he's still too young to know "what my signature move would be."

That sound you hear is the clapping of Hall of Famer and Heat assistant coach Bob McAdoo.

"To already be the best, the most unstoppable player in the game, and still put this kind of work in to pick up little moves here and there to make him even better shows you the kind of great player LeBron is," said McAdoo, who averaged 22.1 points a game and who played against Abdul-Jabbar. "...There's a lot more to it than shooting 3-pointers and athletic dunks. When you get to a certain point, it's about doing whatever you can to complete your game, to have something else to go to when entire teams try to take something else away."

for a guy that doesn't necessarily have a signature move, i really do like it.

What moves do you guys think he should work on?

me personally, I like the fact that he is broadening his game in the post, but at the same time, I really hope he improves his FT shooting.

I would also like him to improve his shooting from beyond 12 ft. But i would be happy with a different set of post moves as well as improved ft shooting.

I know LeBron worked with Hakeem, but I didn't see much of the dream shake from him. Maybe he should work on that move more before moving on to another move.

But have to respect the guy for expanding his game.

He shot 73% from the FT line for the playoffs, but I feel he got better as the playoffs progressed. I think he shot something like 82% in the Finals??

Correct me, some of my percentages may be a little off.

Tim Duncan's bank shot.

The backboard will help neutralize the power in his shots.

He needs to work on his outside and free throw shooting. His post moves are fine. It shows how dependent he was on his athleticism that he's just now 8 years into his career working on different offensive moves.

oh ok.. so by me posting a thread about an article that was on Espn.com, and almost every basketball related page/article/blog/etc., that means that i am a "Typical Heat fans making threads about how Lebron is the greatest player on the planet and the greatest *** wiper too."

k.

you don't need to start making kobe threads, i said you dont WHINE about it. what does whining about kobe threads have anything to do with you starting them? :confused:

anyways. it's cool tho man, I expected non-bias comments on this article, but you're just fitting the stereotype.

Carry on. :clap:

He needs to work on a move where he doesn't have to take 3 steps to score at the basket. Two steps would be preferable since it's in the rule books.

It's a testament to how great he is. He has been the most dominant player in the past decade, hands down. People who don't see that need to take their homer goggles off.

Guy pretty much destroys every team in the playoffs single handed and haters still say he "chocking" in the clutch? I think it's time to let it go guys, LBJ dissing is getting old and lame, how about dissing Howard or CP3 or Melo? those losers ain't done nada with themselves yet.

Your fan base and the other trolls keep making 80% of the Kobe threads in the NBA Forum.

Post should have said "LeBron tinkering with someone else's signature move". He's good, but he's not so good that he has a new move every year that makes all of the rest pale in comparison.


My favorite is still the "Crab Dribble" though :D

you're missing the point lol he's broadening his game. and he will keep working on these moves until he's really good at it. just think of him working on the sky hook, as improving on his already improved post game.

thats all.

you guys just missed it, lebron just attempted and made his first sky hook, used his left hand.. looked weird but it went in lol
