LeBron will 'elevate' Lakers, says Nash

LeBron will 'elevate' Lakers, says Nash

But in a bid to keep him as fresh as possible ahead of the new season, Lakers coach Luke Walton has opted to rest the 33-year-old.

Joking aside, it seems that James himself is in great spirits as he heads into his regular season debut with the Lakers next week. "My 14- and 11-year-olds drink wine". His arrival should be good enough to take the Lakers, who finished with 35 wins previous year, into the postseason.

"We've got a long way to go to get to Golden State", James said. We're picking up from scratch.

"But we can't worry about what Golden State is doing". It might be a little early for them to compete for the championship this year.

The initiative is the largest computing and AI investment by an academic institution in the United States to date. MIT just announced the founding of a billion dollar AI college on their campus.

James also realizes this particular Hollywood project is even bigger than him: The Lakers have made no secret of their plan to entice a second superstar, likely younger than James, to join them in free agency or by other means. After James was often forced to do it all on offense in Cleveland, nearly anybody on the floor for these Lakers could bring the ball up, run the break or create offense off the dribble.

The Lakers defeated the Warriors 123-113 in preseason action on Wednesday. A Lakers lineup without James then repeated the feat in a 119-105 win on Friday.

Nash, a former Laker, believes three-time National Basketball Association champion and four-time MVP James will lift the team to another level.

"The focus and communications skills with everyone starts with LeBron", the former Indiana Pacers player said. "We didn't do any contact, but he's doing better and he feels good". "It's contagious and helps the whole team". We have to take our bumps and our bruises, there's going to be good times and bad times.
