Whether it's from his ability to spot the open teammate when the opposition decides to double team him or his linebacker-like frame, LeBron James in the post is already a difficult assignment for any defender. But as they say, there is always room for improvement and LeBron believes that he could become an even better player next season and beyond by adding the "skyhook," which was made famous by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, to his arsenal.
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….
James vows to add the traditional hook shot to his game, and he could test it out when the Heat play a pair of exhibition games this week in China against the Los Angeles Clippers. (Heat assistant coach Bob) McAdoo proudly acknowledges that James is continuing to build a foundation of post moves that took root two summers ago in Houston with (Hakeem) Olajuwon.
If King James does manage to get the hook down pat, will this impact your individual stance in the LeBron/Jordan debate?
