Last week LeBron James proclaimed that his “playoff mode was activated” a little bit early this season considering that the Lakers are in serious danger of missing out on the postseason.
“It’s been activated,” the Lakers star said after Wednesday’s practice, talking about playoff intensity as the team got set to host the Houston Rockets on Thursday.
“Obviously, we would have loved to have success when I was out, but we didn’t, so this is where we [are] right now,” said James, who missed 18 games after suffering a groin injury on Dec. 25. “I’m going to be a little bit different a little bit earlier than I would like to be in previous years.”
Last night as the Lakers were losing to the Bucks LeBron decided to angrily walk off the court with about 10 seconds left in the game.
Twitter was not happy about LeBron bouncing early.
