Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is one of the all-time greats in the world of professional basketball. James suffered a very nasty injury to his right ankle in the Lakers’ game against the Atlanta Hawks back in March and despite making a return, James simply hasn’t been the same since the injury.
The ankle injury has certainly impacted his performance in the basketball court. It came to such a point that many fans believed LeBron James should retire from playing.
While speaking to reporters, LeBron James talked about his injury and revealed that he is still suffering from its effects even now. However, he hasn’t lost his determination to win games.
“It took a while. I didn’t do much basketball stuff for probably the first two months of the summer, which is very rare for me, because my ankle wasn’t responding how I would like it to respond.
“And the best thing about the summertime was I had time. I had time to just really get ready when my ankle was ready to go. I was always training, just wasn’t on the basketball court much. Always doing other stuff, training, pushing, seeing if I could do other stuff with my ankle, and until I got to a point where I didn’t feel any sharp pains anymore, and my flexibility was back to where it was before. That’s when I knew I could get back on the floor.
I don’t play the game thinking about injuries,” James told reporters. “And I also feel worse when I play low minutes
We will have to wait and see how LeBron James will perform once the next season starts as he is determined to do better than last season.
