LeBron James is certainly a creative player. Add that with being the best on the planet and you have yourself quite a deadly combination. During the Team USA destruction of Great Britain, James threw the ball off the rear end of Joel Freeland and scored a nifty layup.
Right now, Team USA looks unstoppable. Of course, they have not played anyone of note just yet, even if Brazil did give them a bit of a scare. If the team is focused on defense, they are going to wreck havoc on almost any team on the planet. They are too quick to handle easily.
This is what makes LeBron James so good. It looks like he is having a lot of fun out on the court. That is a bad thing for every other player on the planet. When Bron is having fun, that means he can relax on the court. When he’s relaxed, he can do things that no other person can do.
It is going to be fun to watch this team play in the Olympics. They are going to be the favorites and not many teams have a chance to pull off the upset. They will need to hope that Team USA has an off shooting night or that a couple guys end up with a nagging injury or too.
Plays like this make the game of basketball fun. It is going to be a lot of fun watching the Olympics this year.
