The Real Reason Why LeBron Isn't Considered an All-Time Great 'Scorer'

Rob Parker: “LeBron doesn’t have that jump shot. He doesn’t have that ‘move’. He fills the stat sheet, I don’t doubt that at all. Is it always pretty? Is he running over people and dunking? Yeah. Other guys have a ‘pretty’ jump shot, I think that’s why he’s not mentioned… It’s not pretty. It doesn’t matter though and he gets the job done, but when people talk about shooters and scorers it’s different… Most of the other guys have something pretty – a pretty jump shot or a pretty or patented move, and that’s what LeBron lacks.”
Chris Broussard: “He is one of the greatest ‘scorers’ ever, but I totally agree with you. LeBron doesn’t have the offensive package in terms of scoring that Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and James Harden have… It’s like Shaq. Shaq didn’t have the most or the greatest post moves, but you couldn’t stop the DUNK… I also think it has something to do with the ‘GOAT’ debate. Michael Jordan had the prettiest and most graceful moves ever… LeBron doesn’t have the one go-to move, is not a great shooter, and is not as graceful in the air as some of these other guys. That’s why people don’t mention him among the great scorers even though he obviously is.” (Full Segment Above)

Listen to Rob Parker and Chris Broussard discuss a recent tweet LeBron James made that acknowledged a historical scoring milestone of his, as LeBron appeared to mock NBA media and fans alike who have apparently never given him the proper due when it comes to him being one of the greatest ‘scorers’ of all time, and instead, often referring to him as a 'pass-first' guy.

Check out the video above as Chris and Rob open up about WHY they don’t think LeBron gets that specific 'scorer's' acclaim, and why he doesn’t really deserve it either, saying they don't even think it has to do with his often passive demeanor with the basketball.
