e other big thing is passivity. There were times, for example, late in Game 6 when the Heat needed a basket. Now. And LeBron looked like he wanted no part of it. Until he gets that killer instinct late in games, he won't reach his full potential. You don't just "get" that. That has to develop over time. The question remains: will LeBron develop it? Only time will tell.

On whether Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki is better than Thunder star Kevin Durant:

Right now, I'd say yes. He's more seasoned than KD. He has felt the pain of playoff losses and he has allowed that to motivate him to get better. I truly believe that once Durant has that seasoning, he'll be as good as any player in the league. He has that kind of drive that is fueled by what happened to the Thunder this year. KD will also continue to develop his game. Right now, Dirk's arsenal is bigger than KD's, but I think in time, KD will have all the moves and abilities that he needs.
