Tiger Fight, September 27. In the fifth game of the Western Conference Finals that ended today, the Lakers defeated the Nuggets 117-107, and the series scored 4-1 to advance to the finals. After the game, Lakers forward LeBron James was interviewed.
Speaking of the relationship between him and his teammate Anthony Davis, James said: "I guess it was a long time ago. When I was 27, I wanted to put myself in his place. Think about it. What do I think about at that age, if I play with a player who is late in my career... Anyway, I never want him to disappoint me. I'm not even talking about things on the court because of shooting on the court. Sometimes I enter and sometimes I don’t, but for a person who I don’t want to say is a model, but a person who makes me more demanding in terms of character, I don’t want to let him down. This is very interesting, it seems that he is also affected by me. Infection, because he doesn’t want to disappoint me. Have you all seen the movie "Brothers"? We’re like that. Yes, I’m the role played by Will Farrell. I often provoke him, I Will make trouble on his drum stand when he is not paying attention. That's me, I often spoof him."
In this game, James played 40 minutes, 15 of 25 shots, 38 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists and 1 steal.
