Even after winning his first NBA championship and third MVP award, LeBron James is not finished tinkering with his game. The Miami Heat star recently revealed that he has spent the offseason working on a hook shot that would diversify his skills in the post and give him yet another option to score.


ESPN.com reported Wednesday that James has been mimicking the famous “sky hook” of NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar this summer, spending extra time after Heat practices during training camp to perfect the shot. It is part of his newly-embraced role in the post, which he employed during the 2011-2012 season to make him a more effective shooter and open up shots for his teammates on the perimeter.

“I’ll be down here even more this year,” James told ESPN during one after-practice session recently. “Might as well keep getting more comfortable.”
