LeBron ‘Almost Cracked’ During the Lakers’ Early Struggles
LeBron knows the Lakers aren’t where they need to be 12 games into the season — you and I both, King.
Last month after a tight loss to the Wolves on the road, a no-filter LeBron told reporters that no one would want to be around him when his patience ran out.
He recently rescinded on that statement a little, when he recently told Yahoo’s Chris Haynes that he had to remind himself that he was coming to a young, rebuilding squad, so extra patience was needed:
“I haven’t changed anything outwardly, but you know me. You know how I am. I almost cracked [last week].
“I had to sit back and remind myself, ‘[Expletive], you knew what you were getting yourself into. This process has been good for me. I just have to continue being patient.”
Since then, the Lakers have been on a three-game winning streak, but it still has some issues to overcome before it can bring the Lakers back into Championship contention. And they won’t have to wait too long to test their resolve, facing the #2 team in the West, the Portland Trailblazers this Wednesday at Staples.
