Iman Shumpert: LeBron's Superpower is His Basketball IQ, It's Scary (Part 10)

  • Published on Mar 22, 2020 veröffentlicht
  • Part 11: • Iman Shumpert Details ...
    Part 9: • Iman Shumpert: Carmelo...
    Part 1: • Iman Shumpert: I Watch...
    In this clip, Iman Shumpert started out by sharing a story about stepping to Carmelo his rookie year for not passing him the ball when he was open during a game. Iman explained that things got heated, but Carmelo explained to Iman that he worked on instances that were presented in the game, which Iman said he respected. He went on to detail going to Cleveland and playing with LeBron, who Iman says has a huge basketball IQ, and feeling like he was a girl in between two friends. While speaking about LeBron's high basketball IG, Iman says LeBron knows all of his teams plays along with the opponents. Iman added that it's "crazy" how LeBron can get his whole team on the same page, which you can hear more about above.

    That was probably the most in depth explanation of what it’s like playing with LeBron & his IQ I’ve ever seen so far. That was impressive Shump ✊🏽

      Preston Wingate Interviewer did a great job letting him talk too. Think even he was surprised by how in depth he went. There’s a million questions he could’ve asked had he expected Shump to do that

    Regardless of his finals record, there's a reason he's been there 9 times in 16 years. That is legendary in itself.

      ZBT 3 years ago +36

      mimicduzit they play in the west tho... Do you really think lebron in the west gets to the finals that many times? It’s a lot harder for KD and kawhi to get to the finals. The first season Kawhi is in the east he wins the championship

    • Chris Butler
      Chris Butler 3 years ago +85

      ZBT nigga stop it. Kawhi had Gasol, Lowry, Ibaka, Green, and Siakam. Plus they were the number one seed for the past three years before that lol

    • Jason Kamara
      Jason Kamara 3 years ago +29

      Kobe wasn't appreciated until he passed away...the media n social media included eliminated him from the goat conversation up until his demise...he was hated when he played n ignored when he retired...but people forget...the convo was Kobe vs Jordan on ESPN b4 ESPN became the LeBron apologist station...lol

    This almost as good as when Andre Berto broke down his fight with Mayweather. The respect and how specific they get when describing the GOATS in the moment. Appreciate it 💯 times more when you're actually there and witness it.

    What is LeBron known for globally across the world? Being a 6'9 physical freak of nature. What is he known for among real hoops fans? Being a savant, unreal basketball IQ was part of why he was a child prodigy

      YvngGoat I used to hate him so much in Miami but I become a fan once he went back home because he didn’t have to do that . Then proceeds to make 4 more finals like cmon bro . That’s crazy . KD probably hated him for that OKC finals and wanted to return the favor .

    • Theo Burden
      Theo Burden 3 years ago +1

      Reason why he lost 6 times in the finals....they were amazed at his game knowledge and it put them in a fans position on the court which lead them to not understand how to involve themselves in the game with a player's magnitude such as his....lebron is every goat in one....true facts...lol..

  • renny6_actual
    renny6_actual 3 years ago +15

    man,shump had me rewatch this 5 times, his story telling ability had me locked in, and for the first 3 i actually thought I was in Cleveland catching passes from lebron and setting screens and cutting. # we gon miss bron when it's GONE.

  • Jerado Talbot
    Jerado Talbot 3 years ago +17

    I watched LeBron play the Indiana Pacers in a regular season game in Miami, I was in the nose bleeds. During the game he caught the ball that was going out of bounds with one hand balancing on one foot and from that same position threw a bullet pass thru the key for an easy layup from the three point line.

    You can easily tell Lebron has high basketball intelligence by dominating the league long time he knows what he needs to be doing to improve his teammates like himself he always takes the advantages of his physical physique combining it with his deeper view for the game dude is scary fr he doesn't have all the talent and skills but he's able to gather talents for himself, orchestrated not just his team but the teams front office man that dude is beyond everybody else.

  • Meditation Mayham
    Meditation Mayham 3 years ago +1

    That is why any team Lebron plays he has such a omnipresent impact because he see’s everything. He is kind of like Goku mastering ultra instinct. Sometimes LeBron does stuff that unless you really understand basketball you’ll never understand what was so special about that. I cant remember the last time Lebron played against a team that was just as good as his and his team lost... other than the games where Lebron just didn’t really care
