LeBron James dominates the courts in many different ways. He can hit from deep, finish at the rim, find his open teammates, and back you down in the post. On the defensive end, he can guard pretty much every position.
But when it comes to James, he also excels mentally as well. He's always one step ahead of his competitors on the court, going so far as to memorize the other team's plays. In a recent chat with The Athletic's Fred Katz, Wizards coach gave a real-life example of James' insane mental game.
To recognize and know their plays so well is no easy task. It takes some serious dedication. And while it might not be so much intellect as it is just preparing for a matchup, these are the types of things that keep LeBron so good at 34-years-old.
He doesn't just over-power his opponents physically, he out-smarts them too.
Friday night's match against the Wizards just provided another example of a regular thing for Bron.
