07:24 AM ET 02.13 | LeBron James may be starring in his own dunk videos these days, but another part of his game could use some work -- though Wednesday's game-winning three over Andre Iguodala suggests he's still very dangerous and comfortable outside. [James] began the season shooting nearly 50 percent from three-point range, but since November his numbers have nosedived. On Saturday in Utah, James went 1 of 6 from beyond the arc in the Heat's 94-89 loss. ... [Heading into Wednesday, he] shot 35.1 percent from distance in December, 27.5 percent in January and he is shooting 26.3 percent from three-point range to begin this month. James is aware of the trend, but says he has no plans of altering his game at this point in the season. James is shooting 63.5 percent this season on shots from inside the three-point arc.

His head is getting bigger again. Self-proclaim king who will be in Mount Rushmore while showing off w/ his dunks before all star break just to get all the attention. Welcome back King James!

He was pretty cocky after that win saying "better Offense beats better defense every time", he's pretty lucky golden state didn't win when their BETTER offense came back against the Heat's terrible defense..but was a nice shot nothing more now we've finally seen him do it once

Its funny how all the LBJ apologists keep saying he's not the same self absorbed guy he was in the past.

He kinda changed that perception the last 2 years and now he is back and starting w/ the stupid interview. His ego is talking for him. We'll see what happens at the end of the season because it's trending to where they might not make the finals. Lebron Cavs dejavu.

The HEAT'S CAPTAIN knows how to make'm in the playoffs...

As of late.....

THIS: Was glad they didn't give the mascot a unibrow.

The redesign comes two days after the Pelicans sent out an elaborate, cheeky press release announcing that Pierre would be undergoing reconstructive surgery to address a ???broken beak??? sustained when he ran into a basket stanchion while playing pick-up ball with a number of other mascots.

Although I think LB to be a fool with his most recent statements concerning Mount Rushmore of the NBA (unbeknownst to only him and a hand full of others, he has a long ways to go and a lotta guys to pass), he did shut up a lot of us truth tellers, haters, etc. with his last two rings (I'll also admit Ray Allen's prayer save his legacy) and now he's back to "look how great I am! Shutty, the Kid2, and I'm out!

Dang! That irritating kid is back! He'll have to shutty a lot more this year because of his Knicks.

He is a PF who the hell cares if he takes a couple of three's a game and makes 1 out of 3.....when he completely dominates every other asset of the game....its not like is Josh Smith who thinks he is Steve Kerr

It just goes to show, Haters are going to hate.

Lebron is the ultimate basketball player, there is no weakness in his game. He is the best 2 way player I have ever seen play this game. EVER!

People will always complain about something no matter what.

Coincidence w/ Apple coming back... Lebron worshippers will always hate any type of criticism. Your Heatles might not make the finals this year and maybe your wish of replacing Wino Pop w/ the best coach ever in Nate McMillan might come into fruition. We don't know why you hate the Spurs so much and love the Heatles or the Cavs when the King was there...

Im not sure why everyone is up in arms about him wanting to be on the Mount Rushmore of basketball players.....I mean is he supposed to just say "Meh, if i can just get by and be a little better than Dale Ellis i would be happy!"

HELL no!!! he is just like Jordan, Kobe, and all the other greats....They set out to be the greatest of all time no matter what....The guy will own almost every scoring record ever, The most MVP's, and no telling how many rings....So let him strive to be the best and not just be Latrell Spreewell.
