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 his personal experience during the missed playoffs last year, James said: "It is to pay attention to all the pain and gains we are discussing. During the finals last year, I watched some games at home and some games I was in Cabo (a famous resort in Mexico). Yes, I watched some games in a hookah lounge. That’s true. I don’t smoke hookah, but I’m there. Yes, the games are all played. I was watching live games in Cabo. I also played games in the lounge. I watched the finals every minute until the end of the game. In fact, I watched every playoff game last year. I watched every game. Part of the reason is, I am a basketball fan and I love this sport. I love the competitive nature of the game, and I love the playoffs. Then I am also saying, I want to be in that moment of the game. What would I do at that moment? If I were on the court Come on, how would I play at that moment? Yes, I didn’t miss a game. Even during vacation, I didn’t get a match. My wife doesn’t like me like this, but she’ll be fine."
In this game, James played 40 minutes, 15 of 25 shots, 38 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists and 1 steal.
