LeBron James does not want a repeat of last season where the LA Lakers saw a first-round knockout in the NBA Playoffs. That is why his squad is working hard to improve and solidify their game as a team. They’re making it through the preseason, but James knows what really counts.
While speaking to the media following the Lake Show’s preseason loss to the Warriors, King James was quite blunt about his views. He said that preseason games don’t matter, because they’re out there to figure out rotations and get things going. It really counts when the season starts and then things will get real.
“I don’t know, I just want to continue to play ball, just continue to work our habits, things of that nature. Preseason is, I care more about the practice quarters, and I do not care about the preseason games. You get out there you play on rotations that they’re trying to figure out.
“So, it’s so much that you can get out of a preseason game for me individually, but I love our practices. I love to see what we’re doing and continue to work behind closed doors. So, I don’t know, I don’t really put too much into preseason, to be honest.”
We’ll pay close attention to the LA Lakers next season, and so will everyone else. Odds are plenty of fans really care about preseason games despite the fact that LeBron James has a different way of viewing things. The sponsors who pay to advertise during those games might tend to disagree as well.
