The game of basketball has a lot more than just scoring baskets. Most important aspect of the game is moving the ball with precision. Talking of passing the ball, LeBron James is one of the greatest passers in the NBA history. He is so versatile that he has equalled his passing record with his ability to score the basket. Recently his prolific passing has been a highlight of his career in the NBA. More importantly the NBA legend has a complete different vision and range of passing than other normal basketball athletes. His teammate Kyle Kuzma has highlighted importance of LeBron James making other fellow players learn.
The Los Angeles Lakers have been slacked down low in the recent ventures. Ever since LeBron has been side-lined with the high ankle injury, Lakers have lost their winning momentum in the league. Their recent loss to LA Clippers have highlighted the importance of LeBron’s absence in the squad. The purple and gold lost to Clippers 104-86 today. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George put up a show before the Lakers.
However, the highlight player was Marcus Morris Sr. Morris came out against his brother Markieff Morris getting major buckets and had 22-points out of it. Luke Kennard was unstoppable from the 3-point range. Lakers struggled getting past their counter parts. Andre Drummond did not play and Marc Gasol was really impressive tonight.
Kyle Kuzma credit’s LeBron James for inspiring the LA Lakers
The Lakers’ forward recently took to twitter and responded to a video put by the Lakers’ page. He said, “Been watching 23 for 3 years now.” Kuzma showed great anticipation with his movement, faking the opponent in one direction and passing the ball in another. His reply elaborated the effect of LeBron making his fellow teammates learn the art of passing. Kuzma has improved massively this season, be it shooting or passing or his aggressive hustle to the bucket, he has been learning well.
LeBron James is having his 3rd season with the LA Lakers now. More importantly he has molded the players around him to be perfect. His huge influence is displayed by the fact that Kuzma has been a massive asset gradually developing for the franchise. However, his absence has now shackled the team. With a 31-19 record the team is trailing so far this season. Hopefully they get past the playoff tussle.
