Re: LeBron makes a statement
Last night Lebron made sure Larry Brown knows why the US lost in the Olympics.
43pts while making the Detroit defense look like a HS team.
I hope his maturity and goodwill is contagious for the NBA's sake. It is sorely needed.
I start with this:
You have no idea what you are talking about. Larry Brown knows how to coach.
The reason The US lost in Athens was because of the lack of shooters. Lebron did nothing but add to that lack of shooting, because he in fact, can't shoot.
But if Lebron can torch the defending Champs he can surely torch Argentina or Italy right? No. Lebron burned Detroit with his slashing and fast break dunks. I don't know if you know this, but in the Olympics there are different rules, and the court has different measurements. Lebron's slashing attempts would have been turnovers in International B-Ball. All he could have added is Fast Break Dunks, and that is nothing that Richard Jefferson and Shawn Marion didn't add.
Gotta look past the surface sometimes. 43 pretty points can be very deceiving.
