Elbow injury forced LeBron James to change shooting motion

Elbow injury forced LeBron James to change shooting motion”

This injury forced James to change his shooting motion to end with a higher release point, causing less discomfort in his elbow. It eventually reached the size of a tennis ball, and LeBron wisely chose to get X-rays and an MRI to see if there was any structural damage.

James' shooting from the line has been one of the biggest knocks against him in his career.

"I definitely got the 50", James replied. "I was working out in L.A.in late June and my wife was like, 'What's wrong with your elbow?' I'm like, 'What?'".

LeBron James has been on a tear through his first five games of the 2017-18 season.

Meanwhile, James also cleared rumors that his elbow problems had something to do with his performance during the Cavs vs. Warriors in last season's finals. And he says it all the time when he's shooting, 'Think strong, strong, strong.' His hand is real strong on the ball and his form is more compact than it's ever been before and I think that he's a worker, man. "When the swelling went down, I just continued to do the same motion, the same motion. My free throws, my 3s, pull-ups, all that". Over the course of his career, James has never shot better than 56.7% from the field, 40.6% from three, and 78% from the free throw line.

Right now, James is at 88.2 percent. His career percentage sits at 74.0 percent. That's my last one.

Teammate Kyle Korver, considered one of the greatest shooters in National Basketball Association history, thinks James is setting his sights too low.

We're not sure how James fared in youth sports, but he definitely can't relate to the Browns at the National Basketball Association level. "I've done everything else". James had a quite animated response to Korver's challenge. "The 50 ain't s--".

His career high in field goal percentage was 56.7 in 2013-14. I'm nearly damn near 60.

- I know what's going to happen. His best mark from 3 was 40.6 percent in 2012-13.
