Despite being the most scrutinized player in the NBA (possibly sports), this summer has been relatively tame for Miami Heat's LeBron James.
You know what happened, LeBron didn't exactly show up like we were all expecting during the NBA Finals. Nevermind the fact that he destroyed Boston and Chicago on his way to the Finals. A lot was said immediately following the Finals about what LeBron needed to do to improve his offensive game since his jumper stopped working and his post game didn't really work out that well in the Finals either.
LeBron then worked out with Hakeem Olajuwon for a few days (can that guy just open up a summer camp for the pros already?) and has more recently been back in Miami working out with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and a few other guys. He also spent some time in Akron, Columbia, OH and Lexington, KY working out and he's also competed in a couple of these Goodman League, Drew League, Team Melo, Team Philly exhibitions.
During one of his mailbags, Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel fielded a question about LeBron's on again, off again jump shot.
Q: LeBron’s jumper was awfully shaky in the Philly exhibition game Sunday night. Off shooting nights happen to everyone, though. That’s not what worried me. What worried me was the incredible lack of confidence he showed at times. Did you see how much he hesitated on some of those jumpers? I know he ended with quite an impressive stat line, but I guess I’m just surprised. — Jim.
