LeBron James had a funny interaction with the media yesterday. It has been awhile since we have had any sports at all. Everyone is ready for sports to be back. With the COVID-19 crisis, it is taking a bit longer than expected. But the NBA season did finally get back on track yesterday, with the Los Angeles Lakers taking on the LA Clippers last night.
After the Lakers big victory, LeBron was speaking with media about the game. It was going rather smooth until big man Anthony Davis stuck his head and and told LeBron to hurry it up.
Everyone was in good spirits after the game, which was a good thing to see. The entire Lakers team didn’t seem to lose much during the break. Many people were worried about how the NBA hiatus could impact the teams. But the Lakers are still looking like a championship level contender.

LeBron spoke about how he thought the game went last night.
“Rhythm, as far as offensively, making shots, those things are going to take a little bit longer to get back,” James said. “But the one thing you can do is defend. You can always communicate … you can have teammates who back you up when you make a mistake. Communication on the defensive side is something that should always be on point.”
Lakers center Anthony Davis also had a few things to say.
“When we’re out there playing, we don’t really notice there are no fans at the game,” Davis said. “We just go out there and compete and just try to get the win. They do a good job with the crowd noise … but when we’re out there competing, it’s just the five of us … the more we use this arena, the easier it will be.”
It looks like the Lakers are all business going into the new start of the season. It will be interesting to see how the bubble situation will impact the team going forward.
What do you think of the team?
