LeBron James is still shouldering the task of scoring for the Los Angeles Lakers
In his last interview with ESPN, LeBron James said: “I was thinking about how much longer I was going to play. I also thought that I don’t want to end my playing career like this. At this stage. Hey, I don’t want to play basketball just for fun anymore, that was never in my DNA.
I still want to play at the highest level, I still want to compete for the championship. I used to be a champion and I want to keep winning. I want to do my best to have a chance to compete and aim for the gold cup. It’s always been a passion, a goal that I’ve always been aiming for since I was an 18-year-old young man.”
With the sharing of LeBron James in the media, there are many opinions that this star has begun to feel bored with the Los Angeles Lakers club. At the age of 38, James is still carrying the team on his shoulders with the highest scoring performance in the team (28.5 points after 28 appearances). Especially when the team’s main pitcher, Anthony Davis, was seriously injured and had to be sidelined, the burden fell even more on James’ shoulders. Even so, James’ tireless efforts still could not pull the downward momentum of the Los Angeles Lakers.
LeBron James’ team is sinking deep in the Western NBA rankings when standing in 13th place out of 15 teams with a record of 15 wins, 21 losses.
In addition, there are many reports that LeBron James is feeling inadequate when the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be negligent in adding personnel. This is also one of the reasons why the team’s performance is going down seriously.
LeBron James’ contract with the Los Angeles Lakers is valid until the end of the 2023-2024 season. However, with the sharing aimed at LeBron James’s team recently, no one can be sure about the future of this 38-year-old basketball star.
