Man with a plan? LeBron eyes Game 2 adjustments
It’s the same one he’s occasionally delivered to Tim Duncan.
Sometimes, though, it’s best if the superstar takes on more himself.
“Opportunities might be there that they didn’t take advantage of. That happens with Timmy now and then. He’s so unselfish, if he shoots three jumpers in a row, he feels like he shouldn’t shoot more sometimes, because he wants the ball to move and he wants to involve everybody. I think unselfish players think like that. Once in a while I’ve got to tell him, no, I don’t care if you get 20 of those shots, you have to take them.”
Maybe James will in Game 2.
“We’ll see what type of game plan I come out with on Sunday,” he said. “It will be dumb of me to reveal it today.”
About the time the game was slipping away from the Heat midway through the fourth quarter, the league MVP had attempted fewer shots than Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and only three more than Mario Chalmers. Bosh took more shots in the final period (5) than James (4).
Yet that just doesn’t seem natural for him.
“I’ve got this far with them, I’m not going to just abandon what I’ve been doing all year to help us get to this point,” James said. “So I know those guys will be ready to shoot again once they’re open.”
The Spurs appeared to retain at least part of the schemes they used against James in 2007, when they swept his Cleveland Cavaliers for their most recent title. A help defender was ready to slide over and make James give up the ball or shoot a jumper if he had beaten his man, rather than have a lane to the basket.
“We obviously understand that he’s extended his range and he’s a much different player than he was then. We’re trying to make it as difficult as possible,” Duncan said.
