The first season of LeBron James with the Los Angeles Lakers did not go according to plan.
According to Dave McMenamine of the ESPN team, James's teammates have even gone so far as to call a team meeting to summon the superstar for his body language during games.
The match came after a brutal stretch in February, which began with an inconvenient loss of 136-94 for the Indiana Pacers. During the game, James was in the picture, sitting at the end of the Lakers bench, away from his teammates. And with a deadline for trading just a few days, the Lakers Guardian Brandon Guard was greeted with "LeBron Trading" chants while firing at the start of the game.

After the game, James openly wondered if his teammates had experience and balance to reach the post-era. According to McMahin, this triggered a players-only meeting organized by Rajon Rondo, where the players held a session with Leibron.
"The meeting at Memphis was something like a retort, and in what became an open forum, several players spoke." The players focused on the inconsistent body language of James throughout the year. his teammates are basically cutting off behavior like hunched shoulders and side glances is something he has tried to work throughout his career.
McMenamin said that James seems to have taken criticism of the heart as he shows a little more emphasis on teammates' staying engaged and enveloping the other players in the wait, but despite the good match, the Lakers will drop and lose from Memphis Grizzlies to start 1-6 divisions that will effectively end the season, while the Lakers' Death of 1,000 abbreviations, James's disappointment played.
After the end of the first half of the season, they left the team with a record of 20-14 on Christmas, and the trauma led James from the Lakers starting lineup for most of January, time that Los Angeles dis charmed 6 -11 in his absence.
After his return, James was still expected by most to be able to bring the Lakers to his first postseason appearance in five years. With the promise of Davis joining the team before the trading deadline, he felt that James, who had played eight consecutive appearances in the NBA finals with Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers, would find a way.
Instead, the tracks have never gathered on Davis's trade, and the consequences of the failed deal left Los Angeles look like a dysfunctional mess at the most important moment of the year.
James still has years with the Lakers, and a big move in 2019 can make this painful year feel like a distant memory if things get to Los Angeles during the same stretch in 2020. no one was happy with the Lakers season this year, and outside the season will be a welcome recreation for all participants.
