During the game versus the Magic, we’ve witnessed both sides of him. His insane chase-down block to clear Westbrook‘s mess shows that he means business when the game is on. Moreover, he never wastes an opportunity to have some fun on the court.

However, James led the Lakers from the front against the Magic after they fell 7 points behind in the first quarter.

Despite a poor winning percentage so far, the Lakers have been roaming around the playoff/play-in region. That is because other teams have been massively underperforming.
