LeBron James Scouting Report From 2003: Why Hasn't He Improved?
 

 
2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Smooth player who makes things look effortless no matter how difficult... Shows unbelievable ability when it comes to passing the ball. Simply has that uncanny court vision and knack for seeing plays develop before they occur... Possesses very good motion on his long range jumper as he does an excellent job of keeping his body square and his shooting with his elbow tucked in ... Owns a quick first step and solid ball handling ability to get past most defenders ... When penetrating to the basket, he shows tremendous body control as he can adjust his shot according to the defense ... Shows remarkable shot selection as he doesn't force too many shots ... Solid rebounder who understands how to position himself well under the boards to gain easy rebounding opportunities ... Shows great poise and leadership on the court... Has a very good body, although not NBA ready. James definitely can put on 10-15 more pounds quite comfortably ... Excellent finisher when running the break where he can take opponents off the dribble and rise up for the quick dunk ... Defensively he shows solid anticipation skills when playing the passing lanes ... Plays the baseline very well where he is often the recipient of a quick pass for the alley-oop dunk ...

Weakness: At this point in his career his defense isn't the best but he does have the physical tools to be an outstanding defender... Has a bad habit of overplaying his man for the quick steal which can leave his player open for the easy shot... Struggles on the free throw line, however getting a free throw routine and experience would be of great benefit to him, plus establishing a sharper mental focus ... His ball handling ability is very good at the high school level, however he still needs work on maintaining better ball protection and has a tendency to get careless ... Perimeter shooting from mid-range isn't as developed as his long-range shooting ... Doesn't exploit his body size enough as his post-up game offensively remains unutilized ... Sometimes he can be a little too flashy at times as he gets caught up in the moment... His shooting off the dribble leaves a little to be desired from 18 feet out... Some have questioned if he has bought into all the hype about himself but to his credit it takes a certain level of brashness to handle it all ... Not a blindingly quick player so lateral quickness on defense should be worked on ...

 Lebron James


He has improved on defense, I'll give him that but everything else is still a problem. LeBron knew back when he was drafted what the scouts said he needs to improve on. Why hasn't he done it? Why are people still questioning his jump shot, free throws, mental toughness, post up game, etc. 9 years later?

Sounds like he improved to me. He's definitately a better shooter, ball handler, and defender. His free throw shooting has been horrendous by his own standards, however.

n*gga what the fu*k is you talking about?

LeBron James is in his prime right now and is playing the best basketball of his life, you stupid a.ss n*gga.

he's quicker, sharper, better shooter, jumps higher, more awareness, dunks harder, greater court vision than he has ever been in his life.

dont you dare disgrace the Basketball God, all you fu*king haters will shut the fu*k up by the end of this month when LeBron hoists that Larry O'Brien Trophy over his head.

fu*k BX cause you dumb n*ggas never learn. we're gonna show you n*ggas, i promise you.

Where's his jump shot? Where's his free throw shooting? Where's his post game? Where's his sharper mental focus? Well at least he didn't buy into the hype

he is the best player in the league he has gotten better. but its clear if u can keep him out of the paint he cant k!ll u with just his jump shot. That the reason why Dallas won they kept him out of the paint and he had not faith in his jump shot .
