Miami Heat’s LeBron James Still Improving His Game

+Read full article

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

 

He is the reigning NBA league MVP, Finals MVP, and a two-time gold medal Olympian.

He is regarded by a large majority of league punditry as the best basketball player on  the planet.

And to the horror of his opponents, he is still improving.

Now in his tenth season in the NBA, LeBron James of the Miami Heat is still finding ways to get better at his craft. He is shooting three point shot better than before and is averaging more rebounds than before.

That is a scary prospect for the league on two fronts.

The first front is that it could lead to an era of individual dominance not seen since the days of Michael Jordan. In the 1990s the Jordan-led Chicago Bulls won six NBA championships during the decade. The only years when the Bulls didn’t win a championship in the decade where either because Jordan retired (1994, 1995, 1999) or when he didn’t break though yet (1990.) Since then there has been somewhat more parity when it comes to championships, that could change now.

The second front is the fact James is still improving at all. There is a plateau that all great players reach in their careers where their skills are at their peak. To think that James, even after being in the NBA for ten years, still hasn’t reached that plateau is astounding. Not to mention that with winning an NBA championship he seems to be playing more freely, which is helping teammates such as Chris Bosh and Rashard Lewis.

And he’s only 27 years old.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.
