LeBron James could be a pure, elite scorer if he wanted to be, but the King has always been admired for his unusual playmaking ability as a forward.

A forward with guard-like tendencies is a rare thing in the NBA and the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar has influenced young stars like Ben Simmons who can now do it all in the frontcourt.

LeBron is also the record-holder for assists from a forward in NBA history and he reached that milestone before he was 30-years-old.

So why is LeBron such a fine creator? The three-time NBA champion explained to ESPN how he makes the looks that he does.

"It's my responsibility to know how my guys want the ball," James said.

"If they like it with no seams or with the seams. I know that might not make sense - some guys like it different ways. I get the ball right in my hand before I throw it. I know the guys on my team like seams or guys who like the ball high when they catch it. I know guys who like it low or midsection.

"I know where everyone wants the ball, and I just try to put it there on time and on target. All they have to do is catch and fire. It's those guys working on their craft that allows me to do that."
