LeBron James has his eyes fixed on the grand prize despite being away from the NBA for more than 4 months.
The Los Angeles Lakers star underlined the need to be adaptable as they continue their championship hunt with the NBA season restarting in a bubble in Orlando, Florida.
“I think every season has its own challenges and its own obstacles. We have to adjust to it,” James said.
“This is a different year with a different challenge, a different obstacle so you have to adjust to that and have that growth mindset.”
James and the Lakers were considered heavy favorites to make the NBA Finals as they led the Western Conference with a 49-14 record before the season got suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
That was probably a big reason why James – arguably the most influential player in the league – called for the NBA season to finish.
“Every year is going to have some things that you have to adjust to that you may not be ready for or you may be ready for and it is the same with [the 2019-2020 season],” James said.
