LeBron James has had an impact on everyone he has played with in the past and still continues to mentor his teammates to this day. He continues to put on spectacular performances despite being at that age where most players would begin to take on the roles of mentors. This shows how dedicated he has been to the sport and how badly he wants to become the greatest player ever.
LeBron James had his talents on display last night but the Los Angeles Lakers nearly saw a brawl break out. Russell Westbrook was fouled hard by San Antonio Spurs’ Zach Collins who elbowed the former MVP. The result of the elbow to the face was a bloody gnash on the forehand which had everybody worried.
LeBron James for one rushed to the scene as he had noticed Westbrook’s cut instantly after the collision took place. The King made sure to bring aid to his teammate who was bleeding heavily. Bron was trolled a lot for his actions but in reality he did the right thing by helping his teammate. Russ was removed from the game and Collins was given a flagrant 2.
LeBron James addressed the situation during the post-game press conference saying, “I saw what the cut was immediately, so it’s just common sense… to put pressure on the cut right away, don’t let it continue to go. Before we became teammates we’ve always been like brothers and cool of that nature. His health is more important than the game of basketball.” James claimed that it was only right he pulled Russ away to help bring aid to the cut.
