LeBron James speaks to "basketball savants" in the postgame press conference.
Speaking to the crowd after a rowdy Lakers win this Friday, LeBron James sent a message to the "basketball savants" who say he shouldn't be conceding to his teammates down the stretch of the game.
But after leaning on players like Cam Reddish to close the game vs. Phoenix, James doubled down on the strategy and lauded his track record of always making the right play.
To all the naysayers and basketball savants that don't know nothing about basketball telling me I should've shot that shot in Miami instead of passing to Cam Reddish,
well I did the same thing tonight because I trust my teammates and I make the right play every single time. Game ball goes to Cam Reddish, for sure.
Cam Reddish is one of the Lakers' newest signings, and he's been thrown into the fire early on by head coach Darvin Ham.
Even after missing a potential game-winning shot against the Miami Heat, Reddish never lost the trust of LeBron,
who looked for him time and time again on Friday.
