Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James plans to play the final two preseason games against the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings said Frank Vogel during the pregame conference against the Phoenix Suns.
James will not play against Phoenix and has played just one preseason game so far, which was against the Warriors the first time around, but he was clearly rusty.
James also recently said he cares more about practice than preseason at this point of his career because of how he doesn’t have anything else to learn from the games.
But it will be important to get acclimated to his new teammates as fast as possible. Developing chemistry and winning games soon will be crucial to compete with the best teams in the Western Conference that didn’t have a roster overhaul in the summer.
