LeBron James has to use the disrespect to fire up his teammates

LeBron James played his part well in game 1. Shooting at a high percentage from all distances, dishing out assists and grabbing some rebounds. Fellow superstar, Anthony Davis also had an All-Star performance. However, the rest of his teammates let him down big time.

Their off-shooting night and a lack of effort on the glass contributed to the Nuggets leaving the arena with a crucial game 1 win. If the Los Angeles Lakers want to win the series, they need to win every game from now onwards. They cannot let the Nuggets get a hold on any game as the momentum will affect with their chances.

After all, the men in purple and gold are part of the most storied franchise in the NBA. They should give it back to the Nuggets fans who won their 1st title last year. LeBron James should use that pride to motivate them going forward.
