King James needs an outside shot
In Year Two, will LeBron James continue to blossom, this time as a true shooting guard?
This year we find out if he can shoot.
Forget about the no-look passes and around-the-back dunks or even the no-look dunks and the around-the-back passes. Last year, the Cavaliers needed the star-studded rookie to play point guard and put bodies in the seats, but not necessarily in that order.
By the time James was named Rookie of the Year, the Cavs also had an All-Star caliber power forward in Carlos Boozer.
Then a funny thing happened.
Davis disappeared before James played his first professional game. Later, Wagner and versatile guard Jeff McInnis were injured. This summer, Boozer ditched the team for Salt Lake. But that was not all.
