The Golden State Warriors lost Game 4 to the Los Angeles Lakers and their head coach wasn’t really happy. Warriors Steve Kerr said the Lakers flopped in the game and LeBron James delivered the perfect response to it.
The four-time NBA champion and his teammates worked really hard to get here. They won a lot of games and even played through injuries. The Lakers had a slow start, but their season got better after the trade deadline. Rob Pelinka and the Lakers front office made some changes and got the players who can actually contribute to the game. LeBron missed time due to an injury, but returned earlier than expected to join his teammates. The result is here and Kerr insulted the team for nothing.
“I just know that we, our coaching staff and us players, we don’t work on flopping,” LeBron said. “That’s not even a part of our game. Our game is to attack the paint. We don’t mind physical contact. We actually like the contact and we don’t shy away from it. So we’re just not a team that goes out there looking for flopping opportunities. That’s just not us. It’s never been. It’s actually never been any team that I’ve played on in my 20 years where we’ve been a flopping team. But it is what it is. They have the right to say what they want to say. But the game is always won in between the four lines and we gotta be better on Friday for sure.”
LeBron has a chance to beat Kerr and the Warriors
The Warriors were aggressive in Game 5 and beat LeBron’s team. Anthony Davis was brilliant on both ends, but Kerr made additional adjustment to elevate his team. LeBron scored 25 points, nine rebounds, and three assists in 39 minutes of action. The Lakers will have to try harder in Game 6 and use the home-court advantage to send the Warriors home with a big loss.
The Lakers are close to winning a title this time. They look good in the postseason and let’s hope players turn this greatness into a title.
