The Los Angeles Lakers didn’t have the best offense in the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Players had to survive a 19-point loss to OKC, and it didn’t feel right at all. This loss may bring joy to doubters, but LeBron James and Anthony Davis have something else to say. LeBron and Davis have been carrying the offense this whole time, and their teammates need to level up their offensive skills. Is the great LeBron James worried about the offensive struggles?
When asked about the offensive struggles, LeBron provided a cryptic answer. His most loyal fans will understand these words.
“It’s just some things that you can’t control that’s here, that I really don’t want to talk about, that’s off the floor,” he said.
LeBron James provides a detailed response regarding offensive issues
LeBron didn’t provide a clear answer and some analysts have discussed some of the distractions inside the Orlando bubble.
Joe Vardon of The Athletic tried to explain the real meaning of LeBron’s comment. Well, LeBron provided a longer response and things are a lot clearer now.
“This is a totally different situation than any other situation that I’ve been in in my career, so I have zero experience with having the number one seed inside of a bubble during seeding games playing in August,” said the three-time NBA champion. “This is all a learning experience for all of us and we’re going to take it day-by-day and continue to work on our habits, either on the floor, during the film session, when we’re able to get on the floor as well. But this is a totally different season, a totally different drastic situation for all of us, including myself.”
The Lakers have had a good game in Orlando. But they have the lowest offensive output and fans have started asking questions. Superstars are probably getting their well deserved rest. The Portland Trail Blazers may give them a big headache if they don’t change the style in the next four seeding games.
LeBron, Davis and other Lakers players won two games in Orlando. Will they keep the winning record alive? Let’s see what happens in the next few games.
