The rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and their city rivals has grown so strong that even the coronavirus pandemic didn’t shut down the growing intensity between the teams. NBA players will finish their season in the bubble at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Teams had their first games, and the Lakers had their first seeding game against the Clippers. LeBron James was brilliant in the game vs LA Clippers, and his put-back move helped the team seal the win.
LeBron is well aware of the fact that his team and the Clippers are fighting for “one common goal.” They are trying to win a title and bring joy to their fan base in Los Angeles. There are too many competitors on the floor, and LeBron is more than proud to represent the purple and gold. He represents the Lakers nation and knows that Kawhi Leonard and his teammates do the same for their team. It’s a tough situation for players on both teams and they are playing with no fans in attendance. Basketball is a competitive sport and LeBron has a competitive soul. The same applies to Anthony Davis, Leonard, Paul George and the rest of the guys on both teams.
LeBron James to try harder in the next game vs Clippers
The regular season was suspended on March 11 after Utah Jazz Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus. LeBron’s team was on top of the West, and Kawhi’s Clippers came at No. 2 spot. LA players take part in the toughest battle, and LeBron is really excited about this. He missed playing against Kawhi and George. Moreover, this was one of the things he missed the most in the past four months. Playing against great players excites him and helps him unleash the beast inside him. LeBron is going after his fourth ring. Kawhi won a ring with the Toronto Raptors last year. He is used to winning so maybe he will give LeBron a hard time in the next couple of months.
Orlando is on fire, and players on each team are ready for the upcoming adventure.
