LeBron James shared his thoughts on the fans of the Los Angeles Lakers and what he has learned about them.
James said the fans of the Lakers don’t care about what each player has accomplished before. What matters to them is the success they have with the team.
“What I’ve learned from being a Laker is that the Laker faithful don’t give a damn about what you’ve done before… Until you’ve done it as a Laker, they don’t care,” James told reporters, via Harrison Faigen of the Silver Screen and Roll.
In his second season with the Lakers, James is one win away from earning the fourth NBA title of his career.
The Lakers lead the NBA Finals series against the Miami Heat 3-1. Game 5 is on Friday.
LeBron, on what he’s learned about being a Laker from his time here:
“What I’ve learned from being a Laker is that the Laker faithful don’t give a damn about what you’ve done before… Until you’ve done it as a Laker, they don’t care.”
