LeBron Revealed Improved Low-Post Game

The process for LeBron James has been two years in the making. Even when you’re the planet’s best basketball player, it can take that long to craft a liability into a luxury, to carve a weakness into a strength.
Yet there was a time James never really cared to admit his low-post game was the ugliest part of a beautiful skill set.
But when relentless hard work is blended with the distance of hindsight, the byproduct can be a refreshing humility.
He owns a post-up game so strong now James feels it will remain a viable option regardless of any adjustments the Indiana Pacers make Tuesday as the Miami Heat carry a 2-1 lead into Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.
“I’m much better than I was two or three years ago, and I still have a lot of room to improve,” James said Monday, a day after delivering the most revealing evidence yet. “I can work down there all game if need be now, and that’s something I couldn’t do probably just two years ago. If I have to spend all day, all game, in the post, I can do that.”
