LeBron James Reveals Why He’s So Frustrated With Lakers Teammates

The Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-104 on Wednesday night. Not only did the loss drop them to 29-40 on the year, but it also served as a highlight reel of how disrespected LA is by squads around the league at this point.

The video largely speaks for itself:

Understandably, this all left Lakers star LeBron James feeling very miffed. So much so, in fact, that he wasn’t shy about expressing his frustration during the game.

Afterward, James spoke to the media and acknowledged that he was deeply annoyed with how things were going.

“It’s part of the game,” James said of how the Wolves disrespected him and his teammates. “I’m very comfortable being uncomfortable. … You can control what you can control. … It’s easy to be comfortable when you are winning.”

James added that he was definitely getting his patience tested more nowadays.

“Testing your patience and how you can keep the focus and not fall into the notion of a losing mentality … I would never put myself in a position where I feel like I’m losing even though (losses mount),” he said.

James has only been on two squads that ended up finishing under .500. Seeing as LA is a mere two defeats away from clinching a losing season, it looks like it’s about to happen for a third time in 2022.

In that spirit, it’s understandable why James would be annoyed. Earlier this week he seemed to take a pretty blatant shot at Russell Westbrook, and prior to that he was beefing pretty hardcore with the front office.

This is as tense as we’ve seen James in years.

Obviously this appears to be a lost season for James and the Lakers, but hopefully they can use this summer to salvage what’s left of his career. If they don’t, then expect more angry outbursts like the kind we’ve seen from him over the past few months.
