Lebron James likely to rejoin Lakers' lineup Friday

LeBron James and the Lakers will have their eyes on top free agents heading into the offseason

LeBron James and the Lakers will have their eyes on top free agents heading into the offseason

This season, he tried to work with young and inexperienced Los Angeles Lakers players and they fell short.

And former Laker Metta World Peace knows what triggered Los Angeles' collapse from the fourth seed in the NBA's Western Conference to a disgruntled 10th seed with a 31-40 record.

Whether it's from the field or the charity stripe, shooting needs to be a point of emphasis this summer for Ball, especially if he's going to spend another season alongside LeBron James in Los Angeles.

"The thing about taking games off is that your games, your seasons, and your career go by really, really, quickly", Bryant said to the panel, "So, you want to make sure you don't miss any of those moments".

Although NBA players taking "rest days" has become a trend in recent years, Kobe Bryant apparently doesn't believe in its philosophy whatsoever. That gives them a 13.9 percent chance at a top-four pick and a one percent chance at the first overall pick, per Tankathon. "But next year should be better".

James did start and play 35 minutes Sunday in the Lakers' 124-123 loss at NY, finishing with 33 points on 11-of-26 shooting with eight assists and six rebounds.

Bryant's comments echo those he has made in the past about being a dad of daughters, admitting to Extra in July 2017 that while "Guys keep teasing" him about being a father of only girls, he couldn't be prouder. "Seasons like this are what make the championships worth it".

After tearing his Achilles in 2013, Bryant went through multiple losing seasons with the Lakers in his last few years in the National Basketball Association.

Kobe also had advice for Magic Johnson.
