LeBron James has always been a man of the people. Over the course of his 16-year-career, James has always said the right things and has never shied away from the spotlight. More importantly, he has been classified as a stellar teammate, always giving credit to his team and having fun with the guys he shares the court with every game.
As a fan favorite and team player, Alex Caruso has been no exception to this and recently received a lot of praise by Bron on social media.

The post was immediately following a 16-point performance from Caruso, in which he was a +7 on the night.
And while Caruso has no business being mentioned in the same company as LeBron and Davis, he is certainly an important player for the Lakers this season. As a selfless, pass-first point guard, Caruso electrifies the second unit with his energy and play style. For the season, he’s averaging 5.7 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists on 44% shooting.
He is a fan favorite in L.A., and definitely part of the long-term plans of the franchise.
Clearly, the King holds him in very high regard as well.
