“My Mom Told Me, Don’t talk about it”: LeBron James Recalls Emotional Memories Ahead of WCF

LeBron James ruled the Eastern Conference for the majority of his career. Bron won three rings there, including going to the NBA finals for eight straight years! He was always criticized for playing in the weaker conference, but that excuse is no more.

James joined the LA Lakers a year back to compete in the stacked Western Conference. Although James missed the playoffs last season, he was injured for several weeks during the regular season. As a result, the Lakers missed the playoffs.

But it was nothing but bad luck for James and the Lakers as he is back in the Conference Finals. In a media conference, LBJ revealed his thoughts on missing out on the playoffs last year and heading into the 2019-20 season.

“I didn’t like the way our season ended for us last year, especially myself with the injury and with our ball club… My mom told me, ‘Don’t talk about it, be about it.’ So I didn’t talk much. Just go out and do your job.”

James has been phenomenal this year in both the regular season and the postseason. After clinching the number 1 seed in the Conference, Bron and AD are balling out in the playoffs. King James is averaging 26.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game so far.

Moreover, James’ Lakers have lost just two games in the whole playoffs until now. They will battle the Denver Nuggets for a chance to represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals.

LeBron James turned 35 years old this season, but looking at his game, no one can tell that. Prior to the season, many sports pundits had already decrowned James from being the best player in the league.

But James proved he is far from done yet again and went off in the regular season. He led the league in assists per game and recently made the All-NBA team for a record 16 times.

With Kawhi Leonard and Giannis Antetokounmpo already out of the playoff, its James’ race to lose. If LeBron brings a championship to LA this year, it will solidify his resume even further. Moreover, not to mention, Lakers fans are hungry for an NBA championship for a decade.

Can LeBron James lead the Lakers to banner number 17? Or will this year end on a sad note for the team? The question will be answered soon as the Lakers prepare for the WCF series.
