Lonnie Walker has marvelled at LeBron James’ work ethic every day since joining the Lakers at the start of the season.
Not everyone has the privilege of sharing the locker room with the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and Walker is amazed at the lengths LeBron goes to, for himself as well as his teammates, at 38 years of age.
“For him to be in Year 20 and always be in the gym first, working out, already got a sweat, watching film, talking, telling us certain little things to do, it’s ridiculous,” Walker said.
Walker soaks up as much basketball knowledge from King James as he can and says that you could “walk to a bucket” if you just heed James’ advice on how to run a play.
“This dude is a living robot, man,” Walker continued. “He knows the game inside and out. He knows every other team’s plays. … He’s a leader. He’s a vocalized leader and he leads by actions as well.”
This season, James is averaging a very impressive 29 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game on 50 percent shooting from the field and the impact he has on the Lakers team when he is on the floor is absolutely palpable.
After his most recent right foot tendon injury, James said that the doctor told him he was “healing faster than anybody they’ve seen before with the injury.” An injury he was training three times a day to get back from.
There were recent claims from a UFC star that James has (or is) using PEDs and there were also rumors he traveled to Germany to receive a PRP injection, like Kobe Bryant did for his knee in 2013. Whatever he is doing, it’s clearly working for him.
