LeBron adds new hook to arsenal
Just what LeBron James needs: More weapons. A year ago, LeBron James adopted elements of Hakeem Olajuwon's Dream Shake. This time around, the Miami Heat star forward is implementing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's patented skyhook.
And no one in the gym is more ecstatic to see James continue to add to his low-post scoring arsenal than longtime Heat assistant coach and Hall of Famer Bob McAdoo. ... So when a sweat-soaked James spent nearly 30 minutes alone after a recent practice working on his sweeping hook shot, on some levels it was deja vu for McAdoo. "I'll be down here even more this year," James shouted through near exhaustion as he wrapped up the extended workout. "Might as well keep getting more comfortable."
I want to see him perfect Michael's fade away J next. Fadeaway baseline when the double team comes or beat the double and go middle with the sky-hook , that would be fun to watch.
i'd like him to make more free throws before learning his fade away lol
for the most part when he takes those fadeways off the high post he makes them, he just cant exploit it like MJ could. i was reading an old star say that without hand checking for the most part you're better off facing up you're opponent and blowing by them (if you can).
last year i started a threat saying lebron post shot will show improvement but his actual low-post moves will be lacking such as a sky hook or up and unders etc. and it was just like that, he showed the occasional hook shot last year but nothing special. hopefully he can develop his post game more

he's done a sweeping skyhook before, more than once, i cant find it right now.
but here's lebron's best game as far as post offense. his post scoring was jordanesque here and its shows you the potential
