Troy Brown Jr. Sends Conflicted Message To LeBron James After Lakers Lose To Bulls
LeBron James joined the Los Angeles Lakers in the game against the Chicago Bulls, but the franchise added a loss to the chart. Patrick Beverley used the opportunity to trash his former team and it was wild. Losing this game won’t affect the plan, but Lakers players should be more careful about the next few games. Troy Brown Jr. delivered a big message on LeBron and experts are confused.
According to Brown Jr., LeBron’s presence has a huge impact on their playstyle. LeBron has built a style over the years and his teammates have to make some adjustments to make things work.
“I feel like there’s some good to it and some bad to it, honestly,” Brown said via the NBA Interviews YouTube channel. “Just it being so quick. You kind of go to get used to it. Obviously, he plays a certain way. He moves the ball a certain [way]. We were playing a certain style, and then he comes back, and we have to adjust. So, it’s good to have these next two days to figure it out and get it together. Obviously, we’re very happy to have him back. But there are some things where it was like, ‘Dang, if we just had a little bit more practice, it definitely would have helped us.’ But we’re definitely happy to have him back.”

Having LeBron back is a big deal for the purple and gold. He came off the bench, delivering 19 points, 8 rebounds, and three assists in 29:32 minutes on the floor. Brown had a big night and his 18 points brought joy to many fans. In the loss to the Bulls, Brown scored 18 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals, and two blocks on 7-of-13 shooting from the field and 4-of-9 shooting from the three-point line.
Lakers players have to be more consistent and do their best to add more wins in the final stretch of the season. Their playoff hopes are still high and they are motivated to do the right thing and get their rings.
