Former NBA player, Paul Silas, has thrown some shade on LeBron James regarding his jump shot. Silas used to play for the NBA back in the 70s and also coached in the NBA during the late 90s and early 2000s.
At one point, Silas coached the Cavaliers and had time to work with James on his jump shot. Since the time he coached LeBron, he has came out and finally made a comment on coaching James:
"I've tried to work on his jumpshot with him but it's just not good." -Paul Silas on LeBron James (LeBron's first @NBA head coach)

Ouch. We all know that LeBron James isn’t the best shooter in the world, but to get thrown under the bus by an old coach definitely speaks volumes. Whether or not you take his word for it, James is getting all the hate because of the current finals match up against the Warriors.
Hopefully LeBron can pull it together and put on a show for America during these finals, so he can silence the doubters, once again.
