LeBron James has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season. The reigning finals MVP and three-time NBA champion is playing without pressure after finally making good on his promise to deliver a title to the city of Cleveland.

After overcoming the Golden State Warriors in last season's finals, the aim for Bron and his teammates is to retain their crown, but the four-time MVP has his eyes on adding a fifth to his collection. 

Before the season began, James used Stephen Curry as an example to show he can be MVP for the first time since 2013 despite playing limited minutes. 

So far, with the Cavaliers at 4-0, James is close to averaging a triple-double as he currently sits on 20.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and as many assists. 

However, despite his solid start to the campaign, there was proof during the game against the Houston Rockets that LeBron is, in fact, a human being. 

James has never been the strongest free throw shooter, his three-point shot has also always been questionable - and he showed his shortfall at the charity stripe last night. 

Through the campaign so far, the Akron boy is shooting a career-low 63.3% from the line and even managed to airball an attempt at the Q Arena. 

The incident came during the second quarter, but James quickly put it behind him and produced another consistent performance with 19 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists. 

Nobody is safe from Shaquille O'Neal, and it would be very surprising if LeBron doesn't make a rare appearance on 'Shaqtin a Fool' tomorrow.
