Dwyane Wade & LeBron James reveal 2012 offseason plans

Dwyane Wade said he will work on his jumper and LeBron James promised to reveal a new element to his game next season.
Dwyane Wade isn’t sure whether he will need off-season knee surgery that could knock him out of this summer’s London Olympics but will consider hiring a shooting coach regardless. Meanwhile, LeBron James plans to add another element to his game, even after another MVP season.

The Heat’s two biggest stars shared those and other nuggets after the team’s championship parade Monday.

For Wade, a decision on his troublesome left knee will be made shortly.

“When everything dies down this week, I will sit down with doctors — those that I trust — and make the best decision for me and my career,” he said. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I won’t know until I sit down with [the doctors] and have an MRI and see what’s wrong with my knee and what I have to get done.”

Wade said he would not be inclined to go to the Olympics if he cannot play.

Wade said the knee caused him discomfort throughout the postseason and, “I had to go through a lot to play. If people knew what I had to go through just to play, it was crazy. The biggest thing was I had a lot of swelling.

“My left knee is my power knee. It’s my explosion knee. When you are dealing with knee issues, you are dealing with lateral quickness [issues]. I dealt with it. At times, I did great with it. At other times, I didn’t do great with it.”

He said he had his knee drained before Game 3 against Indiana, when he scored five points on 2-for-13 shooting. “Very sore,” he said. “It was so much swelling, and I wanted some relief.”

Wade said he might work with a shooting coach “for the first time ever” after a postseason in which he shot 31 percent on mid-range jumpers (50 for 163) and 29 percent on three-pointers (10 for 34).

The goal, he said, “is to try to do more in the sense of my three-point game and midrange game, getting that back. My mechanics aren’t that bad. I don’t have an ugly shot, not one of those Shawn Marion shots. There are certain things in my shot I can change.”

Wade said a shooting coach could “give me a different look and [suggest] where I can get better.” He said he also wants “to continue to get better in the post.”

James also has “thought about what I’m going to do personally to improve my game. I always love the offseason. I’ll have an opportunity to come back with something new. There is more to add. Not telling you guys what yet.”

James offered more self-analysis Monday, noting: “I always wanted to be one of the greats. I knew I couldn’t be one of the greats until I entered that championship room. It’s a relief. I feel happy today to be a champion.”

After losing in last year’s Finals, James did not leave his home for two weeks. Since winning the championship Thursday, he has gone home only “to shower and get changed again. That’s all.”

Winning a title has renewed his faith in some of life’s lessons.

“There are sayings you hear and you start to wonder if they’re actually true,” he said. “Hard work pays off. Good things come to people who are patient. And patience is a virtue.

“Sometimes you question if it’s actually true, but there’s truth to it. I was very patient; I tried to work on my game as hard as I could and tried to be more of a leader.”

In the aftermath of a title, Wade said James “is more relaxed. Like they say, the monkey is off your back. It didn’t get off by him riding a coattail. It came off by him going to get it. Losing last year humbled him so much and made him grow up.”

Looking back, James said “the best thing that happened to our team, which was the worst at the time, was Chris Bosh getting hurt because it gave [Erik Spoelstra] a lineup change we didn’t know was possible, with Shane Battier starting at the 4.

“We always envisioned Shane being a backup 3. When I went out, he would come in. When he started at the 4 and guarded [Indiana’s] David West and takes one of the bigs out of the paint and opened up the floor for me and D-Wade and gave us a lineup we so needed, gave us space we needed and also an unbelievable defensive lineup.”

James, happy to have been joined in celebrations by a few of his high school teammates in recent days, will spend the next week appearing on David Letterman’s CBS show on Tuesday and with Wade and Chris Bosh on The View (undetermined day) and with Oprah Winfrey (on her OWN network at 8 p.m. Sunday).

“After the Olympics, I will take some time off and try to get my legs back under me,” James said. “Hopefully, it’s another long season for us next year. I’ll be ready.”

Yep. Agree with Wade. Must be able to spread the floor for LeBron. Too many times Bron drives and kicks and Wade instead of taking the open shot drives into defense a lot of time taking a tougher shot. LeBron also needs to work on that mid-range shot. His problem is simple though...he needs to be able to square up on that pull up J. When he squares up he makes it. When he drifts or fades he misses. LeBron has an obvious problem. Wade...sh*t its like he said..his mechanics are fine. Its probably something small that would require a shooting coach to figure out.

why shoot low percentage outside jumpders when you can be aggressive, drive to the hole, get fouled and take high percentage free throws and get the other team in foul trouble?

oh that's right you're a kobe stan who doesnt give a shyt about fundamentals, just how pretty kobe's fadeaway looks when he's bricking it over 3 defenders

kobe shoots much less % from 3 than lebron tho keep talking out your a.ss ill bring up #'s to back it up


Lebron shot 36.2% from 3

kobe shot 30.3 % from 3 this year


yea that's right, compare Bron's best year to Kobe's 16th season, good way to go lmao...when it comes to scoring, don't compare the 2, just don't

Kobe had a bad season percentage rise, it was no spacing at all, u want him to drive? how when the lane is clogged up like a muthafu*ka, u got 2 big lame soft fu*kas in the paint who even space the floor or an threat, Bynum is the 2nd best post player on the team behind a guard lmao









can't wait to see Bron shooting jumpers at 33 when he loses his athleticism like Kobe did lmao

Bron going be able to build them 3 little pigs last house

Lebron can really expand his post game. He has a turnaround. Needs an up and under move. And add the sky hook for nostalgia

what do you think he's been working on his post game for, dummy?

when bron loses his athleticism he's just gonna get his karl malone on and average 20 and 10 playing near the rim. when you're a rare breed of athletic specimen like him you can do shyt like that

meanwhile kobe will be making yearly trips to germany in the offseason to get knee replacement surgery
