(McMenamin) LeBron his high level of play: "I think people have just grown accustomed of what I do and it gets taken for granted at times what I do because I do it so often and it’s been a constant thing for so long, It’s like, 'Oh, that's what LeBron's supposed to do.' It looks easy, but it’s not."
Full Context on the Quote: Over the weekend, Channing Frye weighed in with what percentage of peak LeBron James we're seeing so far this season, "Usually LeBron gives you about 60 percent. He’s about 80 percent LeBron and it’s looking effortless so pretty scary."
James didn't quite agree with Frye's math. "I've never played at 60 in my life. Never. But OK, cool, it sounds good. I like it." James went on to say that if he is at 80 percent currently, it will only improve by the postseason. "I can play better," James said. "But I think right now I'm in a really good groove. But for me every month I get better and better. That’s how I’ve been in my career. I get stronger and stronger as the months go on.
I just want to continue that. I want to continue to get better and better every month. This is December, I'm at 80. January I'll be at 85, I'll be at 90 in February, I'll be at 95 in March and then when playoffs start I'll be at 100 all the way up hopefully until June. Hopefully I can continue that." He also says that perhaps his body of work has caused people to forget how hard it is to do the things he's doing.
"I think people have just grown accustomed of what I do and it gets taken for granted at times what I do because I do it so often and it's been a constant thing for so long," James said. "It's like, 'Oh, that's what LeBron's supposed to do.' It looks easy, but it's not."
Sure seems easy because of how easy he makes it look. He does it so effortlessly.
