    How can you be a wing player and not let it fly?

    This is what I don't get. LeBron has been passive this whole finals series. They have been daring him to shoot. Now they did the same thing in 07 and LeBron just LeBricked everything.

    If you are wide open on the perimeter and you are a wing player you got to shoot and knock down the shot. That's what your job is as a wing player. To score the ball. Think about it, there are 5 guys on the floor. The object is to score more points than the other team. Somebody has to score the ball.

    The PG can get away with being passive because he is running the offense. He is running the pick and roll. He can dribble drive. Big men protect the rim. If they have skills they can post up and score.

    What the hell is Chalmers going to do when LeBron always has the ball and the Spurs are leaving LeBron wide open?

    I don't like it. LeBron should move to PG or PF this series because the guy doesn't have any trust in his jumper.

    I do recall LeBron before this series saying 'I'm 10, 20, 50 times the player I was on '07. If they force me to shoot like they did then, I'm going to make them pay'

    Am I dreaming or did he not say this prior to game 1?

    Actually Leonard is the more lockdown guy. Green is good too.

    But the point is LeBron is wide open on these jumpers. He's more wide open than if he was playing a game of HORSE.

    Being a wing player doesn't automatically make you a good shooter. And you can't say "every wing player should be able to shoot well", that's like saying "every point guard should be an elite passer". You're judging guys based on arbitrary roles that are outdated in the modern game.

    lol, no it won't. First of all he just had the worst game of his entire career, it's unlikely he'll do that twice. And he hasn't been awful on offense this series. On top of that you're saying he won't be a top 10 player all time because of one series? That's just foolish.

    Yes if you are a wing player you better be able to knock down shots. If you are wing and you are open for a shot and have the ball in your hands what does the PG do?

    Most PG's can't create their own shot.

    If a wing can't knock down an open look it screws with the entire team on the floor. Especially if you don't have a big to post up.

    What do you mean he should move to PG? That doesn't make any sense, just by declaring he is the pg and not the SF doesn't mean anything when he already runs the offense. Weird statement.
