LeBron James is getting ready for a new season with the Los Angeles Lakers after a terrible 2021/22 campaign. They couldn't even make the play-in tournament, finishing one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history. The Lakers' Big 3 didn't work out, and injuries bothered them all season long, making things hard for the Purple and Gold.
Even after this terrible season, people are having a hard time writing off the Lakers from championship contention. Everybody within the organization feels that this hasn't ended and they have a good shot at the title next year. After adding Darvin Ham as their new head coach, the organization is working to get the right players to build around their Big 3.
Anthony Davis is already working out, and LeBron James never stops. He recently sent a message to Lakers Nation, showing his excitement for next season. Bron will finish next season sitting at 38, but contrary to most of the players in history, he's playing great basketball.
Many folks believe he's not done winning championships, which is why the Lakers should be happy with Bron. JJ Redick recently made a case for the King, stating that Bron's career has been nearly perfect, and he still has the tools to be a force in the league. The ESPN analyst agreed with John Salley, who said LeBron could be the Tom Brady of the NBA and keep playing at the highest level even after his 40s.
JJ thinks the same, reminding everybody that LeBron has done incredible things every season and he's not stopping anytime soon (1:00).
"I would never count LeBron out," Redick said. "He's shown a level of sustained individual greatness that I don't if we've ever seen in this sport before. The guy literally hasn't had a bad season in his career, and he's doing that now at age 37."
LeBron is in great spirits right now, getting ready for the next season while the 2022 NBA Finals are still in play. That's how locked in he is to bounce back and prove doubters wrong next year. The fit between him, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook remains a big question mark for the team, but the King is confident they can figure things out.
