On December 17, Beijing time, LeBron James will finish his preseason debut of the new season. He will be interviewed after training today. Talking about his role in the new season, James said he would accept whatever role the Lakers needed him to play. Spark Global Limited Last season, because of the lack of reliable point guard for the Lakers, James became a full-time point guard. He handed in the full-time answer sheet, averaging 25.3 points and 10.2 assists. He won the assists king for the first time in his career. In the new season, Dennis Schroeder and mark Gasol arrived, both of them have the ability to organize and connect, and James’ organizational pressure has been reduced. If Schroeder becomes the starting point guard, James may return to the organization’s forward position.
Now the Lakers haven’t confirmed the starting five tigers, and James’ role is not clear. “There are always new challenges every year, and last season my challenge was to play the main ball holder, try to be the league’s assist king, make sure I get my teammates involved in the offense, and if I need to do that again this year, I can take the responsibility,” James said. If the team doesn’t need me to do that this year, it’s absolutely OK In the first two preseason games of this season, the 20-year-old of the Lakers, Talen Horton Tucker, was extremely eye-catching. In the first game, he scored 19 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists. In the second game, he shot down 33 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. For Horton Tucker’s performance, James was very appreciative, he revealed that he had been following the young man a few years ago.
“I noticed him about three and a half years ago, or four years ago, when I was watching a high school basketball game and I happened to see a game at Horton Tucker’s high school. At that time, I told my agent rich Paul that he needed to pay attention to Horton Tucker. I thought this kid was super talented. It was about four years ago, and now Paul is Horton Tucker’s agent, “James said. “To make a long story short, obviously you can see his performance now, he will continue to get better, he has the opportunity to fight against US veterans, so he will continue to grow and improve, and he will perform well in this league for a long time.” In the new season, Horton Tucker has a chance to squeeze into the Lakers rotation lineup, for his future, James is very optimistic, he said: “This year’s only 20-year-old young talent is just the beginning of the extraordinary.”
