Something that LeBron James doesn't need...
Exactly. He has way too many people telling him how great he is, he needs somebody to put his ass in check from time to time.
And LeBron does have it in Paul Silas, and that's part of the reason his game has improved since last year, IMO. People give LeBron all the credit for being a special talent, which he is... But Silas had a big hand in that, I think.
