LeBron James’s New Team Doesn’t Look Like It’s Ready to Play for Him

If there was any doubt about LeBron James’s comfort with his new Los Angeles Lakers teammates, the most recent Laker unity display proved it.

After the Lakers pushed ahead late to beat the Dallas Mavericks in a tiebreaker game for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference, James tried to coach up his teammates against the Atlanta Hawks in training camp.

But the team got too comfortable, too close to their star and basically bullied James out of their play. The team played one, arguably the best defensive team in the NBA in an exhibition game.

And then, the whole team dressed down James after the game:

James called them “a family”:

But then he texted:

Things got personal.

By comparison, the Lakers beat the Hawks in his place
