LeBron James Sends Strong Message To Austin Reaves After Lakers Defeat Magic

LeBron James enjoyed watching Austin Reaves and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Orlando Magic. It was a wonderful win and Lakers players did their best to break the losing streak. Let’s just say Reaves was the star of the show. He finished the night with 35 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists.

King James took to Twitter to praise his teammate. Austin was a monster on the floor and LeBron just wanted to show his appreciation.

Austin has an incredible fanbase in LA. He is a fan favorite and yes, his performance will help him stay in the spotlight for many years. The talented player is committed to the game and he is really proud of his own performance. Lakers fans give him the support he needs during games and Reaves is more than grateful for all the love he’s been getting lately.

“Yeah, it’s special,” Reaves said. “I play the game with the type of mindset to go leave it on the court every night. For them to appreciate what I do that much means a lot to me. So, shout out to Lakers Nation. It’s all love.”

LeBron, Reaves, and other Lakers players could do wonders together

The Lakers have to keep Reaves around. He enters the market in the offseason and Rob Pelinka has to do his best to keep talented Reaves on his group.

Lakers head coach Darvin Ham had great words for the talented player, too. Reaves earned his trust with his impeccable performance.

“I thought it was him being his normal self,” Ham said. “What he’s been all year. Coming up in clutch moments for us. Trying to make plays downhill. Putting the defense in uncomfortable positions with his ability to attack the paint and draw fouls. So, he was great. He ended up with 36 [and] we needed all of them tonight. His aggressiveness reflects in his free-throw attempts. But that’s been Austin all year. He’s a hell of a player. Happy he’s on our team, and we damn sure needed him tonight.”
