LeBron James continuously adapted his basketball skills throughout his career. Initially relying on his athleticism for driving to the basket, he later realized the need to develop his jump shot. In addition, he focused on enhancing his mental game by studying opponent plays and scouting reports. Lebron worked on his old game” by improving his basketball IQ and advancing his technique which compensated for his declining athleticism.
