LeBron James has been trying to figure things out for the struggling Los Angeles Lakers. The squad has struggled to find any form of chemistry, despite having world class talent. James’ leadership will play a big role in how the rest of the season plays out at Crypto.com Arena.
On Tuesday, the Lakers appeared to have at least temporarily righted the ship. L.A. defeated the Brooklyn Nets on the road to get back to a record of 24-24. Anthony Davis returned to the lineup after missing time with an injury.
The Lakers had the game well in hand by the time the fourth quarter came along. LeBron James was caught on video trying to coach Austin Reaves. The rookie looked completely confused as LBJ explained some in-game strategy.
The clip went viral on social media almost instantly. The perplexed look on Austin’s face is hilarious. Reaves looked as if he had no idea with King James was telling him to do.
Any missed pointers wouldn’t have influenced the game. L.A. was up 106-91 with just 2:47 remaining. It ended up simply being a hilarious piece of video.
LeBron and the Lakers are hoping to stay on course as they fight for a Western Conference playoff spot. It has been a wild season in Los Angeles. Perhaps a moment of levity was exactly what the doctor ordered.
