I'm interested to see what people think? I dunno. Peaked is a tough term to me because your pretty much saying he wont get much better or worse.
By saying that that would mean LBJ has peaked IMO because I dont see him scoring alot more (8-10ppg), rebounding alot more of increasing his assists numbers
I throw the question to you: Has Lebron James Peaked?
No his has not. Dude has not even hit 30 yet and that is around your prime years. He could still add to his game. Numbers wise he may not add much but he can always be more effiecient.
So your saying stat are the only way to tell? and 8-10 pts more is unrealistic, he would be averaging 38-40 ppg
...The man is 24 years old...He still can work on his jump shot...Also, if he works on his post moves, watch out! Heck, who cares if he has peaked? He is still the best player in the NBA.
stats dont tell the whole story..jordans stats went down during his dominate years. lebron isnt even in his prime yet i dont kno the future but im willing to bet the house that he hasnt peeked
He can work on his handle a little more, you know tightening that up..he definitely isnt the best shooter, he's streaky and doesnt shoot a good percentage. He also doesnt have a mid-range game. He does work hard on the ball on D all the time. He has weaknesses, and all of them are improvable. He hasnt reached his peak, he actually has quite a bit of upside. Thats the scary thing about Lebron to everyone, as ridiculously good as he is right now; he could get alot better. Scary huh?
I never said " He is not good" I said we will see more similar seasons to his last one.
I mean whats the next step for LBJ? I dunno. I know he wont average 38-40 ppg because to me, I dont think he wants to. I see him being a 27-6-6 guy in the next 8-12 seasons especially if he goes to a team and plays along side a Wade or a Bosh.
Not if he gets a legit #2 option like Wade, Bosh or even Joe Johnson.
I see 26-6-6
LeBron will be a 28-8-8 guy. Great big man or not.
i think hes peaked athletically but thts like the obvious and besides if i was lebron and i had reached my athletic peak i would be pretty happy!
But has an overall player he still has more in the tank
Dude is only 24 that's very young and already has acomplished alot of things he is a rare bree a 6'8 265 pounder forward who dribbles like a guard and runs like one strong like a center i dint even think he scratching his potential and lebron works hard as much as i hate see he is the best player in the nba only because of kobe age. And another thing he can go down as the greatest basketball player of all time im not saying he is better than jordan but when seen people get called the next jordan but i dont think we will never see another lebron
it makes me laugh when ppl say things like he's a 29-8-7 guy.... as if those '29-8-7 guys' come along everyday. lol As if that's a pretty ordinary 'guy'
No. He still has a lot he can work on. His jumpshot and his defense could both be greatly improved. Absolutely not.
no way this guy has peaked. He is only 24 and still has so much he can add to his game. I think the only reason we r having this conversation is because he's so damn good already. Oh and by the way if he does get a serious second option, like Bosh, then i see the scoring average going down a bit, but i think he would get awfully close to averaging a triple double per game. Something like 27ppg, 9assts, and 8-9rpg. This guy isn't even close to where he will ultimatley end up in my opnion
with what most of you guys say. hes 24 and how many guys at that age dont get better?
