Has LeBron James reached the peak of his skill?
“Growing up, you don’t know what a prime is or someone in their prime or ceiling,” James said. “You just watch them for their greatness and what they’re doing.”
Having arguably the greatest numbers ever for a player with 26.5 pts, 8.6 reb, 7.1 ast with a career best 54.4% shooting from the field with a 31.4 EFF(NBA.com), could he really do any better?
“I’m playing good basketball,” said James. “I’m at my highest peak. I don’t know if I can continue to improve. I want to. I’m going to study the game. I’m going to continue not to take anything for granted and keep working on my game each and every day.”
LeBron might think that he cant get any better, but there are plenty of people that think he’s still got ways to go before he reaches the ceiling.
“The reality is we don’t know what his ceiling is,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “So why would we even put a ceiling on it? … He’s in the prime of his career. He just turned 28. Most players are just starting to come into their own at that point.”
The Greatest player in the world will still be critical of his own game but his greatest skill is the confidence in that same game he’s been perfecting for years
“I take some contested shots, some fadeaway shots, some shots I wouldn’t teach my son to shoot,” James said. “It’s not fundamentals. I’m just comfortable in any shot that I take. I work on it. I believe every shot that I take is going in no matter where it’s from. It’s not that I’m taking better shots. I’m just confident in my ability.”
