Magic Johnson Shares What LeBron James Told Him When He Joined the Lakers

Magic Johnson has shared what LeBron James told him when he joined the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers are very happy to finally have another franchise player. He has been great for this team so far and will only bring even better things. In his second season with the Lakers, he brought the city a title. This was awesome to see and definitely what the city needed after such a tough year.

This season was very difficult for everyone. But the players who had to stay in the NBA bubble had it even worse. They had to stay in the bubble for nearly 4 months. Take a look at what LeBron said about this recently.

“I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to compete for a championship,” James said. “And that was my mindset once I entered the bubble, once I entered the quarantine process the first two days. And then right from my first practice my mindset was to, if I’m going to be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. And the main thing was for us to finish the season and compete for a championship.

“So that’s just been my mindset throughout these — I don’t even know how many days it is, whatever how many days it is, it feels like five years so it really doesn’t matter. I’ve been as locked in as I’ve ever been in my career.”
