LeBron: "Everyone got used to losing"

LeBron James

LeBron James has questioned the experience of his teammates at the Los Angeles Lakers and asked them to leave their comfort zone. Qualifying for the playoffs is more questionable than ever after the Lakers' 115-128 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.

This is reported by Dave McMenamin of ESPN, who quotes LeBron as saying, "How many know what's at stake if you've never been there? It's a thin line to talk about if you do not know what's needed to achieve a goal, you are sometimes afraid to go into an uncomfortable situation. "

Of course, the superstar refers to the playoffs, which is more and more distant for the Los Angeles Lakers after the disappointing 115:128 defeat against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans, who played without Anthony Davis, led with up to 20 points.

"We have to leave our comfort zone, from the tip-off we must not be scared to fail and show absolute will, there are 23 games left, we'll see what happens," added the King. The defeat makes the Lakers with a score of 29-30 already 3.5 games behind the LA Clippers and the San Antonio Spurs, who currently occupy the last two playoff ranks.

Above all, James is worried about the mentality that has developed in the past: "In recent years, everyone got used to losing, which I do not know so I will never make friends with losing." The defeat in Game 1 against Houston feels like defeat in New Orleans in Game 59."

LeBron has reached the finals 8 times in a row and has been in the playoffs 13 times in a row. Only in his first two seasons did the postseason take place without James. While the former Cavalier was on the floor in 239 playoff games, all the other Lakers who played against New Orleans come together to 50 games.
