LeBron James is shooting the basketball a LOT during the 2015 NBA Finals. Through the first three games of the series, he has attempted 107 shots, including 38 in Game 1, 35 in Game 2, and 34 in Game 3. He's taken so many shots that Dwyane Wade actually got on him a little bit during his interview with LeBron last night. And while LeBron admitted that him taking so many shots is "out of character" for him, he also said that he feels he needs to do it in order to give his team the best chance to win.
Kobe Bryant couldn't agree more. Last night, Twitter user @samsheffer posted this tweet comparing some of the shots LeBron took during Game 3 of the Finals to some of the shots Kobe has taken over the course of his career:
And Kobe actually responded to it. His advice to LeBron? KEEP SHOOTING.
If LeBron takes 40 shots in Game 4, you know who to blame.
