In a press conference, LeBron James was happy that this day was over, despite the loss of the Lakers against the Clippers, to be able to concentrate on this new season which is announced.
Failed start for the title holders. On the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, as part of the NBA regular season, the Los Angeles Lakers lost against the Los Angeles Clippers (109-116), while, at the same time, the Brooklyn Nets disposed of the Golden State Warriors (125-99). During this first meeting cited, LeBron James finished top scorer in his franchise (22 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists), but that was not enough. The NBA was therefore finally able to restart, after many uncertainties, inevitably linked to the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to be rife throughout the world today. Before that, the various franchises that make up the prestigious Basketball League had thus gone through a pre-season period, with various matches played.
James: “The date of the resumption was so uncertain this season”
For some, it was necessary to review habits, as was the case in particular for LeBron James. After this introduction, the star of the Los Angeles Lakers delivered his feelings. In images shared by the Los Angeles Lakers, the player said in particular: “I have always had a routine in my pre-season preparation, after the Finals or the Play-offs, knowing the time I have to be physically, mentally ready for team preparation. The date of the resumption was so uncertain this season. Will it be in December? Will it be early December? Will it be Christmas? Will it be in January? So many questions and then finally there was the training camp on December 1st and the first game of the season on the 22nd. That’s a lot to deal with. But here we are now, like I said, I’m happy this day is over, and we can focus on the season. “
