Hall of Famer Rick Barry unleased quite a diatribe on LeBron James in advance of the king's annual trip to the Bay Area, telling Comcast SportsNet that LBJ has alarming holes in his game.
"He's got major flaws in his game," the Warriors great said in an interview airing Wednesday night. "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."
Ouch. Tell us what you really think, Rick.
