Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is the best basketball player of all time and he doesn’t mind talking about the toughest moment in his career. LeBron has played a lot of games in his career, but he will always remember one particular match. The NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks.
The four-time NBA champion did a Q&A session on Monday night. He received a lot of great questions about his career. Fans wanted to know more about the Lakers season, LeBron’s future plans, his family, and much more. One of the fans decided to ask LeBron about the toughest moment in his professional career. The king of basketball was more than willing to talk about it. His response didn’t shock fans. LeBron has won a lot of games in his NBA career, but he also lost a few important nights such as the Finals against Dallas. He was a Miami Heat superstar back then and the blowout loss to the Mavericks was horrible. Miami lost the series after six games. Dirk Nowitzki earned the NBA Finals MVP award.
“Losing in the finals to Dallas after playing like (crap emoji),” James tweeted. “I hit the reset button, went back to the basics, worked on things in my game I needed to get better at so the defense couldn’t just sit on 1 thing. Hours & hours & hours every day in the off-season on it. Came back (locked emoji) in.”
LeBron James got the best of the toughest moment in his career
We all know what happens when LeBron loses a game. Each loss motivates him to do better. No one wants to meet playoff LeBron. No one likes to play against an angry LeBron.
The loss to Dallas motivated LeBron to win two rings with the Heat. That’s playoff LeBron.
King James is entering a challenging phase in his career. The Los Angeles Lakers missed the playoffs again and LeBron will have to make a decision on his future. Will he stay in LA? Maybe he will take his talents and experience somewhere else. There’s so much going on right now. The Lakers front office has to make a decision, too.
