LeBron James knows Los Angeles Lakers – 11-11 after them 100-106 wins over to the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center on Sunday — far from achieving its potential as a dance club (to use one of his favorite terms).
“We haven’t even scratched the surface of what this team can become,” LeBron said in his post-match comments.
James dropped 33 points after 37 minutes, hit the net 12/20, shortened 4/9 from 3 points, along with 9 assists and 5 rebounds. All in all, he played a superior game and led the Lakers respectively by +14 in the rematch against Isaiah Stewart and co.
The Lakers have Haven’t found a groove yet when December comes very quickly. They have won 4 of the last 10 matches and are still not fully fit. They have no distinct identity and tend to provide a different experience from possessing to possessing and possessing.
However, LeBron believes in this group of Lakers in the long run.
“It tops any other challenge I’ve had in my career, this really brings out the best in me and I love that,” he said after the Pistons win. “I love trying to figure out how we can be better. Break through the mud, overcome adversity, and make it sweeter in the backend,”
Is making this Lakers team a contender a bigger challenge erase the deficit 3-1 to 73 wins Golden Empire Warriors, win a title in the bubble, or, you know, turning the Cleveland Cavaliers into a franchise and a longtime rival is an argument for the sports bar. Either way, James is clearly poised to ramp up problem-solving.
“We will continue to get better and better as we continue to learn from each other more and more, continuing to work within our system offensively and defensively,” he added. “We had nine new entrants into a system they had never been in. I think that takes time. Obviously you hate losses. You don’t want to lose. You feel frustrated. We went crazy the other night after that Sacramento loss. Today we decided to focus on our game plan, learn from our mistakes and we have improved. That right there tells me that we are a team that cares and we are a team that wants to keep getting better throughout it all. “
LeBron’s comment matches marathon-no-sprint philosophy given by basically every player on the team plus Frank Vogel since being freed. For example, in their introductory remarks when signing the contract, both Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook talked about looking forward to embrace the journey and process Build a championship contender, winning as much as the title itself.
“Adversity is what I think is great in life in general,” Westbrook said Sunday. “It builds character. It shows your true self. When things don’t go your way, and you can get through it, the ups and downs, which I think people are just beginning to figure out. In the end, you’ll be satisfied with the result. ”
For now, the Lakers just need her husband to win.
You are absolutely right, totally agree with you! Carry this 🍷 in hand as I type it.
