Agreed. LeBron has played the small ball 5 for a few possessions this season, like when Portland rested Nurkic and had a guy like Collins or Miles Leonard in the game. But even then, he would switch so Hart could do the heavy lifting.
We’ll only see LeBron playing heavy minutes as a small ball 5 in the playoffs when he gets to guard smaller guys like Green, PJ Tucker, or maybe Siakam .
With the combination of McGee and Chandler, he’ll save his body against everyone else.
