Wade needs to start showing up. Wade was carried to that second ring and it hurts me to say this. Only way i became a lebron fan was because i was a lifetime wade fan first.

Wade in no way shape or form was carried to a 2nd ring. Sure he may not have been the best on the team anymore, but he certainly wasn't carried. We are talking about a guy who was still 3rd in the league in PER on the season.

I was pleased with Lebron's effort, Clippers played well they wanted it more and were the hungrier team at the end. Very disappointed with Wade I think his injury is affecting his confidence.

Road trips like these can also be very draining. But again, Lebron is looking great.

I noticed this too, although his left is still better than most players.

Lebron's looked MUCH more comfortable creating with his back to the basket from the mid and high block this season.

LeBron has been in complete control of this game. Norris Cole and his pebble-sized IQ gave the lead up but LeBron (with Battier) is making sure Denver doesn't get over the hump.

Lack of explosion going left is very noticeable.

Other than that, loving his jumper so far this season. Especially his willingness to take them.

Great recognition to post Iggy up instead of trying to take him off the dribble. Posting guaranteed Denver would recognize him as a threat, and it opened up Allen for his 3-point miss. Next time down the floor, Lebron finds Cole for three.

Does the lack of explosion going left get compensated by his effectiveness from the post on the left side of the floor?

He's clearly comfortable spinning over his right shoulder for the fadeaway on the baseline and we are seeing him go over his left shoulder with the jump hook in the lane. And to be honest that's all he needs other than deep post catches and rim runs to be a top notch player. Maybe add an up an under. He's got the 2 basic tools a go to and a counter in the opposite direction that are needed. I'm very excited to see him get more and more comfortable and see if he can develop the post game from the right side of the floor.

Such a sublime basketball talent. He always seemed in control on offense and it seemed like he was playing through fatigue for most of the game given he had played 41 minutes last night. I like what I see so far.

LeBron blew by his defender more times in this game than I can remember in the past two seasons combined.

Lebron's FT shooting has officially gotten to the point where it's a concern. He's just been trash there so far this season, he's gotta fix that.

His transition play has also sucked this year, shows how much he's improved in the halfcourt that his FG% is still about the same.

He started the first 5 games 18-22(81%). Is 21-37(57%) the last 6 games. He goes through a brutal stretch pretty much every season. I'm not sweating it. He'll eventually get up to the mid 70's and stay there, like every season.

On a side note, anyone know how Miami has such a layout the next few weeks?

There next game is Wednesday and then Saturday and then the following Thursday

Miami has played 11 games so far. The rest of the league's average is 9. I'd say that's why.

For some reason he seems to struggle more so playing against Cleveland since he has been in Miami.

Shane Battier got hurt tonight. I wonder if he'll be out for any games and for how long if he does. If he does sit any games, I would hope Spoelstra puts Anthony or Haslem back in the starting lineup and for the rest of the season. I'm not a fan of this small ball tactic, at least if Lebron is going to play SF in this.

I'm not liking Lebron's lack of energy on the boards recently either. He hasn't been dominating them like he did in the beginning of the season. I like everything else so far from him though, the defense, the scoring, aggressiveness, etc. but his energy on the boards needs to get back up.
