LeBron James gets TOO MUCH credit claims NBA expert as Lakers star set huge playoff goal

LEBRON JAMES needs to enter ‘God mode’ in order to carry the Los Angeles Lakers into the playoffs this season.

The Lakers are currently three games back from the playoffs, and will go into Thursday’s game with the Houston Rockets on the back of a two-game losing streak.

James has carried the Lakers this season, and took them to fourth in the Western Conference before suffering injury.

Now, they sit 10th, and in real danger of missing out on the post-season.

If they fail to make it this season, it will be the first time James has missed the playoffs since his second year in the league with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He took the Cavaliers to four straight NBA Finals appearances in a row, winning the 2016 title.

But Murray believes he will have to pull something extra out of the bag to have any joy this season.

He did, however, suggest that this year’s Lakers team is better than other teams James has played with, so he should possibly be doing better.

“I will say this, I think we’re giving LeBron too much credit,” he said.

“This team was playing well, they were 19-14 before he got hurt on Christmas Day.

“I do think in the end LeBron has to get to that point which is ‘God mode’.

“We saw that in the post-season last year. He dragged his team to the Finals.”
