Professional basketball player, LeBron James, has had an extraordinary journey throughout his time in the NBA. James has played in the NBA for an astonishing 15 years.
Recently, James has made a career-altering decision and decided to move the Los Angeles Lakers for the next four years. James spoke about the NBA, shortly after joining the Lakers, in an interview with CNN.
“Not only do you have to have the talent but you have to have the mindedness as well,” James said.
During this interview, he expressed how creating a bond with one team and then abruptly being put onto a whole new one can be challenging.
“I mean now everyone is trying to figure out: how do you put a group of talent together but also a group of minds as well to be able to compete,” James said.
The NBA coaches are conflicted on how to balance talent with mindedness. Putting together a whole new team is a difficult process and will take a while to get used to. James and his coaches are aware of where they stand but also where the other top teams stand player wise.
“Obviously from a talent perspective if you look at Golden State from their top five best players to our top five best players, you would say that they are staked better than us,” James said. “They have a lot of talent. But we have a lot of talent as well,” James said.
James is well aware of his competition but knows his team has great potential in the upcoming season. His energy is high and he is excited to see what he is capable of bringing to the Los Angeles Lakers.
