Word on the street is LeBron James is slow. The data analytics that measure speed claim LeBron is one of the slower people on the court. Paul Pierce has some ideas on why that might be the case.
“Listen, LeBron understands the game is 48 minutes…he paces himself.”
“It’s an overrated stat.”
“This is LeBron we’re talking about; you can’t use analytics on him.”
Pierce knows the vigorous NBA minutes of a star player especially in the playoffs. The King has learned to pace himself and has been dominant most years he has played.
