Yes LeBron was terrible in the second half. But he’s closed plenty of games down the stretch this year and been dominant in them. Also he has had no problem deferring to AD at various points throughout the season. But if you’ve watched Lakers games throughout the year it was fairly obvious that the offense ran much better through LeBron. AD’s weak passing out of double teams is his major flaw. He’s also prone to some really poor shots selection. Rather the Lakers are at their best when AD is used as the finisher off of passes created by LeBron. I also think they both play a lot better on offense when AD is at the five which they went to a little too late in my opinion.Lebron almost lost LA the game. His ego is so big that he completely disregarded the fact that AD was the much better option in the 4th quarter and especially down the stretch. Lebron doesn't have the explosiveness to get past players at the end of games and his game becomes a mess when he has to settle. Just pass it to AD man.
I get that he wants to be regarded as the best player on this LA team, but that's lame.
