lol half of Lebron points are from near rim or freethrow.. And you know refs has lot of assists in those freethrows area
Shots at the free throw line are layups now? Brilliant.
Combined layups, tip ins, dunks, for Lebron James in the regular season this year is 38% of his total shots.
You said 70%. You're wrong. And you've use your trollish powers to trick me into using logic, facts, and proper punctuation... well done.

Look at the Heat Maps on the following pages....Sorry I don't know how to put the graphs directly on here.
What do the heat maps of Westbrook and Harden have to do with Lebron?
A little off base is 5% off... maybe
10%. Lebron James took 40% of his shots in the restricted zone, not
70%. It's the same myth people are still clinging to because they're quickly running out of things to criticize on the court. "Oh but he can't hit a jump shot"... that's a flatout lie. "Oh but 70% of his shots come from layups and dunks". No, 40% of his points are scored in the restricted zone. A 30% difference, that's foolish talk.
Other guys made more 3's. Good for them. They also took more 3's. It's not a negative that Lebron has taken smarter shots. He's deadly at the rim, so I want him taking a lot of shots there. But it's a myth and a lie people keep spewing that "All he does is dunks and layups.. he can't hit a jumper". That's wrong.
