LeBron James’ secret to success is simple
So, what’s his secret to success? In a video from More Than an Athlete, LeBron shared his big secret.
“What allows us to be as powerful as we are too is because we keep the main thing the main thing and that starts with me,” he said. “Like if I was a s–t basketball player, none of this would be possible. You know, if I would’ve come into the league and was like, ‘OK. Yeah, I’m the number 1 pick.’ and you know, ‘We here now. Give us it all.’ Like people would be like, ‘Get out of here.’
“Like I had to put work in. And I’m still putting in work. Because that’s just who I am. So like, we kept the main thing the main thing. The main thing is basketball, and we never lost track of that. I never lost track of that. And once that thing is taken care of, then the sky is the limit.”
LeBron and the Lakers will enter the second round of the playoff series. They will play against Houston or Oklahoma City.
