LeBron James: ‘I’m back to playing LeBron James basketball’

"I’m in my zone, in a comfort zone where I’ve been the last two years," James told Sun Sports. "It took me a little while to get here, but I’m very comfortable with this team. I’m very comfortable with the sets, offensively and defensively. "And I’m back to playing LeBron James basketball."


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Things are gelling between the Miami Heat and LeBron James.

After all, the MVP dropped a third-person reference, which is always a sign of comfort for an NBA superstar.

Nobody should be surprised by James’ success. He’s physically blessed and incredibly talented; however, his basketball IQ and passing ability are his true strengths.

The critics will remind James there’s a difference between feeling comfortable in the regular season and winning during the playoffs. The Cavaliers, his former team, imploded for two straight playoffs.

The critics will also contend that Miami’s holes at the one and five spots are too great for Chris Bosh, James, and Dwyane Wade to overcome –especially if the Boston Celtics can stay healthy.

So James will need his comfort zone to prove the critics wrong and win a championship. And then there will be a barrage of third person references.
