With his dangerous combination of size, strength and speed, LeBron James is truly a rare breed of a player. Using these to his advantage, he can beat you many ways offensively. However, James is most effective when showing his aggressive ability and attacking the basket.
Watching the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs was like viewing a new LeBron James, he was hitting clutch shots and showing a true killer instinct. Not only that, but it seemed as if he was thriving off finally proving critics wrong. With Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh by his side, no team could stop this trio in a quest to become champions.
That was until they met the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals.
Give the Mavericks credit; after Game 1, they played a solid zone defense that completely shut down Miami's ability to drive. A lot of this was due to coach Erik Spoelstra's lack to make adjustments, but LeBron didn't show the desire to break through.
So why must James show his aggressive playing style more often?
Let's look at some reasons and find out.
