Heat LeBron/Wade competing against eachother

http://m.palmbeachpost.com/news/spor...entages/nT2sZ/

They are competing against each other, re: efficiency from the field, particularly shooting 50%..

However, here is the best part of the article:

Quote:
“We’re both so conscious of wanting to shoot 50 percent, that sometimes you wish you had that Kobe (Bryant) thought, where you just don’t care,” Wade said. “We talk about it all the time. It sucks at times, but it’s who we are.”

While that's good in helping them take smart shots, it's stupid for the most part because it shows they would rather get a nice looking stat sheet than win.

Just shut up and play. They shouldn't even be thinking about stats.

I don't think it's about stats at all. Stating they want to be above the 50% mark is extremely efficient, which in the Heat's case translates into wins. Being cognizant of that should encourage Wade/LBJ to start passing more and doing other things than continue to shoot if they are shooting poorly. At least that's what I got by bringing up Kobe.

You may as well say "eff EVERY star wing player in the league" then... because they all do it.

Yeah but Wade and Harden have to be the most pronounced, obvious attempt to 'bail themselves out of a bad shot' in the league, I agree with SJ, annoying as eff - especially when they jump sideways and get the call..... Personally, now that the league went after floppers I think they should address that next - just takes away from the game imo.
