The Skyhook

apparently the regular season and finals MVP doesn't think he is dominant enough. After dominating the NBA regular and post seasons, the Finals, and the Olympics he is still looking for ways to embarrass his opponents. This year he will incorporate the unstoppable Skyhook into his already vast array of moves. I'm convinced LeBron is a video game character that just buys new attributes and moves once he reaches an achievement. Anyway, the Skyhook was made famous by Kareem Abdul Jabar who used it to vault his way to the top of the all-time scoring list. We don't figure Bron would use it nearly as much, but if he breaks it out once or twice a game, and he proves he can be effective with it, it's just another move defenders will have to worry about. I expect LBJ to power his way in the paint most of the time, but if he sees a double team coming and goes into the skyhook to avoid it, oh my. or if the D overcommits to stop the sky, he spins the other way or dishes it to the arsenal of weapons Riley has equipped him with. This also adds to his commitment to work on his post game, something he started working on 2 years ago with The Dream. ALSO, it shows that he is not satisfied with one ring, he is truly committed to winning as many as possible. The pressure will be off, but he is still as hungry as ever. Sit, back, relax, and watch the wins pile up HEAT fans. This is gonna be a fun and ridiculously enjoyable season.
