LeBron James Gets Brutally Honest About Nuggets Beating Lakers Again

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers were eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Denver Nuggets for the second straight year.

Despite a lot of heated back and forth trash talk, L.A. didn’t have anything of substance for Denver on the court.

The Nuggets were clearly the superior team.

This week, James got brutally honest about that Nuggets series and what it meant.

“S**t, where am I emotionally right now?” he said.

“I don’t know, to be honest. I have no idea where I am emotionally right now. You know, obviously, you know, going against the defending champions in the first round is always going to be a difficult challenge. We knew that coming into it.”

In the end, James seemed really frustrated by how many opportunities the Lakers allowed to pass them by.

“But, f**k, we had so many opportunities, man, you know, and to lose in five, two of them being game-winners by, you know, Jamal, you know, his greatness. But we have so many opportunities,” he continued.

“Obviously being up, you know, 20, you know, in game two in their building and losing that game and having so many opportunities in other games, you just feel like, s**t, if one play here, one play there, you know, could have made a hell of a difference. But, you know, when you’re playing against a team like that, you have zero room for error. And I believe we made too many errors in some of the games. ”

In the end, though – James could acknowledge that the Nuggets were the better team.

“But f**k, man, I feel like, you know, a couple plays here, a couple plays there. You know, we could have won the series, but the better team won. The better team won, for sure. Give credit where credit is due.”

The Lakers have a big summer ahead of them. A number of tough decisions will be need to be made.

Will L.A. be able to retool the roster in a way that makes them a bit more competitive against the Nuggets come next season? Time will tell.
