Rick Barry is pretty down on some of his fundamentals, which I'm not a basketball player so I can't really comment, other than the fact Barry was a pretty incredible shooter.
Former NBA great Rick Barry had some pointed comments for LeBron James during an interview with Comcast SportsNet Bay Area that will air on Wednesday night.
"He's got major flaws in his game," Barry said. "He's six years into the NBA. How can a man six years into the NBA with his talent have a major flaw in his shot? How can he not use screens effectively? . . I watch the game very carefully - he doesn't use screens effectively and this is not LeBron's fault. It's the fault of the people who are teaching him. . . . There is no doubt in my mind that LeBron, if shown these things would do them, because he wants to be a great player, he wants to win a championship. As great as he is, he should be better."
Talking to Branson Wright of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Barry did not back down but tried to explain his comments.
"...Why be mad at me for trying to make one of the best players better? It's constructive criticism. It's not LeBron's fault if he's not taught something and not taught how to correct it. He doesn't know he has a problem."
"There's a technical flaw in his outside shot....He's not a good outside shooter. But just imagine if he became more of an accurate shooter. His free throws would get even better and it would open up so much more to his game."
Barry believes he could fix James' game
"....For me, it's about teaching and making guys better by utilizing skills effectively."
