Rather than spending time on how LeBron James can look inside to find ways to improve himself, we're going to come up with ways for James to look towards way he can improve himself by observing the games of his former role models and idols that he looked to as a kid growing up in Akron, Ohio. James has been criticized for his duration with the Miami Heat thus far and it's allowed him to give himself some time to reflect and think about how he could find ways to improve himself physically and mentally.

The NBA Finals no doubt proved to be quite the growing up experience for James as he took the majority of the blame for his team's failures to come through with an expected title. After dominating the regular season and postseason with upwards of 27 points per game, James managed to only average 17 points per during the Finals as he couldn't find any way to drive nor hit from the perimeter.

Since then, James has stayed out of the spotlight with the occasional news of his exploits in the many charity games that have been put on during the lockout as well as the reported goings on between himself and Hakeem Olajuwon. James has done the right thing this offseason by staying out of the spotlight and out of the always judging media's eye and it greatly assists the player that needs to strengthen his mentality going into these crucial games and moments.

We took the liberty of looking into who James could possibly look towards for help and we gave him five players and their games that he could look at to improve his overall game.
