As the sun sets on a terrible season for the Los Angeles Lakers, their star player LeBron James expressed his disappointment while speaking during his exit interview. He opined on how the team hasn’t performed well as a unit mainly due to injuries. 

He said, “I mean, at the end of the day, the reason why we were not very good together is we weren’t on the damn floor together. That is the No. 1 thing. I mean, how many games did we play together? We played, what, a quarter of the season together? Less than a quarter of a season. I played more games with my high school teammates in a season, and we only played 27 games. So there it is.”

“That’s literally half the season. Forty-one starting lineups”

He also spoke about how the team had 41 starting lineups and no one has seen the full potential of their team. “That’s literally half the season. Forty-one starting lineups. Wow,” he said. “It’s just, you never get an opportunity to see what the ballclub could have been. Definitely frustrating, for sure. And how long I can play at this level? I mean, it’s up to my health. It’s up to my spirit.”

James was then asked about the possible trades that could go down in the offseason. He said, “That’s not my decision. It’s not my decision to sit here and say well, this is what we should bring back and have on the roster. That would be the front office’s decision. And obviously, they may ask my input but at the end of the day like I said they’ll make the decision they feel that best suits this franchise going forward.”

“I love being teammates with Russ”

Later the four-time champion also opined on his relationship with point guard and teammate Russell Westbrook.“One thing about Russ that I love and always will love is his competitive spirit and what he brings to the game every night,” James said. “To have a guy that’s reliable that’ll put on the uniform every single night…that’s something I respect. I’m not going to sit here and make decisions for the front office but I love being teammates with Russ.”

LeBron James averaged 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists a game while shooting 52.4% from the field and 35.9% from three-point range this season. All the averages, except assists, and shooting percentages are above his career stats.
