LeBron James wants the best for his team, and so does everybody on the roster. But LBJ comes in with a lot of experience that other guys don’t have. In fact, King James is currently the oldest player in the league. But even at 38, he can win matches alone and turn things around. He proved it in the game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Anyhow, the fans expect the Lakers to face no problem with the rotation if one player gets unavailable with an injury. It is because they’ve such a deep and balanced roster.
That should prevent the team from facing any difficulty if one player suddenly becomes unavailable for a while. But it is also essential to know what the best possible lineup would look like in the absence of one or two key players. That’s what Darvin Ham is trying to figure out in the early part of this season. He’s playing different rotations to figure out the best lineup.
What Does LBJ Think About Ham’s Rotation?
Recently, LeBron James shared his opinion on Ham’s uncertain rotations. He told Dan Woike of The Los Angeles Times that as a player and as a team, their job is to make it work with each player on the floor. They can’t afford to make excuses. Moreover, LeBron James mentioned that it is essential for players in the team to complement each other well on the defense and also on the offense.
LeBron James thinks as players, they need to give the coach some time to figure out the rhythm, and then they’ll know what the subpattern is. Anyway, LeBron James believes it is key to concentrate on going out and just play the game. As a team, they just need to work it all out, and at the right time, everything will fall right into place.
