LeBron James, who has played in the NBA for twenty years, was candid while discussing the task
James remarked, "It's 23 of the most significant games of my career, for a regular season."
It's the kind of attitude I have and that I want the lads to have when they return from the vacation.
To place such an emphasis on this recent stretch after four NBA titles, ten trips to the Finals,
and a plethora of personal triumphs, including his recent promotion to the league's all-time greatest scorer, would seem overly dramatic.
James clarified his position by saying that the urgency didn't begin during the All-Star break but rather towards the end of last season,
when Los Angeles missed the playoffs for just the fourth time in his first 19 seasons as a player.
James stated, "I want to make a push to make the playoffs. "I don't want to go two years in a row without playing in the postseason.
