That is his main weapon. You take away his off the charts athelticism and what is he? An average to good player. I hope you aren't going to argue this.
You shouldn't hope.... The point is that LeBron's athleticism wouldn't be a factor if he didn't develop of jumper, didn't have very good ball handling for a player his size and be able to shoot with both hands. The fundamental he possessed when he came in the league were "average" but his athleticism was at or near the top. The combination makes him who he is along with the growth in BBIQ and confidence.

The guy turns the ball over a lot just like Westbrook becasue they are reckless and wild. You take away the athleticism of these guys and i would say their skill level is average at best. They just blow by guys with his explosion.
His handles aren't that good..... umm... O.K.

Nash doesn't complement Howard.... or he isn't a "star"? Nash is probably the best point guard the game has seen since Stockton retired and he doesn't fit your definition of a complementary piece to Howard..... Ummm.. O.K. 2.0
