LeBron James officially joined The Lakers this summer and this was without knowing if the Lakers would try to accompany him with another superstar player. This caused a lot of NBA fans to question why he joined the team.
The Lakers recently signed Rajon Rondo along with Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee who were not considered big time additions. LeBron James still signed with the team and was very happy to do so, but a lot was left unanswered as to why he feels they can compete.
James recently done a interview with CCTV in China and he broke down why he feels he will have fun playing in L.A.
“I think more importantly than what I need to share with the younger guys, I think what a lot of people are missing is how hungry for knowledge that the young guys have. With Kuz and Zo and Josh Hart, and Brandon Ingram, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Slavi (Note: This is Svi Mykhailiuk’s new name now. Sorry, Svi) and Moe Wagner, we have young guys that are extremely excited about not only playing the game, but also learning the game too. That’s going to help out even more because those guys are just hungry for knowledge, so I’m looking forward to that.”
He also shared a tweet of he and his teammates playing in the training facility.
