The Los Angeles Lakers have lost six of their last seven games, and LeBron James has taken notice. James, who just came back from injury, is not happy at all about their recent defeat.
The Raptors took the Lakers down on Sunday, and King James had something to say about it. He knows that the Lakers are tied with the Trail Blazers at 36-28. Every win and loss matters more as the teams battle for a coveted seeded spot in the post-season play. For James, it doesn’t matter where they land, because he’s just not a fan of the new system at all.
“It don’t matter where we land. That’s my mindset. If it happens to be sixth, or fifth, or whatever the case may be. Or if we end up in that playoff, whatever that thing is. Whoever came up with that sh*t needs to be fired.”
It’s a convoluted situation and not the easiest to follow. King James obviously doesn’t love the Lakers’ spot in the entire situation and that doesn’t help things ether.
In the end, James said that, “I think our team is predicated on health. That is the No. 1 thing for our ball club. We need to be healthy and we need to be at full strength.” They are ready to bounce back, and James will likely be incredibly vocal about that in practice as well.
