LeBron James Back In Lakers Training With Talen Horton-Tucker And Malik Monk

With the new NBA season just over a month away, players are preparing to start their new campaigns. This means they will ramp up their training and workouts, and even get together with their teammates to prepare for the upcoming season.

And it appears that LeBron James has returned to training with the Los Angeles Lakers. James, who spent most of the offseason working out from his home so that he could also give time to his other projects, returned to the UCLA Health Training Center and linked up with his teammates.

James has had a busy offseason off the court. This summer, his movie 'Space Jam: A New Legacy' hit the box office, and he was attending red carpets, promotional tours, and interviews for the same.

But that doesn't mean that James wasn't hard at work. LeBron is one of the hardest-working players in the NBA and is constantly in the gym during his free time. So LeBron kept himself in shape and sharp way before he was scheduled to return to training.

In a clip that emerged from his first practice session, LeBron James was seen practicing his corner three-point shot, making all of them. 

He was running these rounds with young teammates Talen Horton-Tucker and Malik Monk. Perhaps James surrounded himself with younger players so he could bounce off the speed and energy they bring to these sessions.

Now close to 37 years of age, James has to give his body the right time and care in order to excel at the highest level. Because of the quick turnaround between the Orlando Bubble and the start of the 2020-21 season, James didn't get that time and suffered the most significant injury of his career.

James will be extremely well-rested and motivated heading into the new season. Unlike last year, James has had an adequate amount of time to rest and prepare his body for the new season.
