◼️ The first anecdotes arise after the start of the Lakers’ training camp for the 2018-19 season.
This comes to us via Twitter. “According to Rob Pelinka, a teammate dropped LeBron’s pass the other day because he didn’t expect it. The ’23’ expressed the situation to the other player who had lost the ball in a loud way: “Boy, do you like your nose?“. After the affirmative answer of the teammate, James told him the following thing: “Well get your hands ready or I will break your nose”.
According to Rob Pelinka, a teammate dropped LeBron’s pass the other day because he didn’t expect it, leading to this exchange:
LeBron: “Man do you like your nose?
LeBron: “Well get your hands ready, or I’m gonna break your nose!”

Although it seems a somewhat abrupt phrase out of context, it’s part of the training routine and the motivation part that LeBron James will want to imprint to his new teammates, with whom he will look for a substantial improvement in the Lakers.
