LeBron James missed too many games due to his groin strain. He led Team LeBron at the All-Star Game and actually won it. This is a clear sign that LeBron feels great, and he convinced everyone that he is back to his original shape. What does this mean? The Lakers will have more success in the second half of the season.
LeBron was captain of Team LeBron on Sunday’s All-Star game. He led the team to a 178-164 win, and had 19 points, eighth rebounds and four assists. The king returned from his groin injury, and was on the sidelines for 17 games. The Lakers did not have much success without their star player. LeBron provided an injury update after the All-Star game.
“I feel great. I feel great. I’m looking forward to the second half of the season. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do to get back in this playoff race. That’s my only mindset. That’s the only thing that’s going to have my mental space for the next two months. How I can get this team playing the type of level of basketball we were playing before my injury.”
The All-Star game raised a lot of questions, and LeBron was just happy with his role on the floor. He likes to compete, and this win just proves how great he is.
LeBron’s competitiveness is the best injury update
“You put me on the floor, I love to compete,” James said after the match. “I’m a competitor, no matter what it is. I’m competing to see if I can get to this table first.” He asked reporters if other stars had given interviews before him, and got a big ‘no’ for answer. “See what I’m talking about? See you all the second half of the season,” he said.
Let’s see how will things go at the end of the season.
