Rick Barry – one of the NBA’s all-time great scorers and master of the between-the-legs free throw – has some words for LeBron James:
“He’s got major flaws in his game,” Barry said. “He’s six years into the NBA. How can a man six years into the NBA with his talent have a major flaw in his shot? How can he not use screens effectively? . . . I watch the game very carefully, he doesn’t use screens effectively and this is not LeBron’s fault. It’s the fault of the people who are teaching him. . . . there is no doubt in my mind that LeBron, if shown these things would do them, because he wants to be a great player, he wants to win a championship. As great as he is, he should be better.”
Take that – King James.
Did you know Rick has 13 sons all of whom played pro ball? Scooter, Jon, Brent, Drew, Greg, Peter, Bobby, Arnold, Willis, Ponch, Theo, Potzie and Chachi.
