LeBron James' Lakers criticisms are flying right back at him

LeBron James' Lakers criticisms are flying right back at him

The Lakers are in the midst of a losing streak, even though bets continue to roll in on them, with handicappers refusing to believe that LeBron James will allow the team to miss the National Basketball Association playoffs.

James' Los Angeles Lakers are now 29-31 and in the 11th spot in the West with 22 games remaining.

Team harmony is low at the Lakers. LeBron James has called out his teammates, saying they need to get "comfortable with being uncomfortable" and they shouldn't feel "accustomed" to losing.

James suffered a groin injury on Christmas Day but returned in late January.

James, who was reminded by a reporter that the Lakers' longest win streak of the season is only four games, kept pointing to sunny skies ahead.

ESPN's Real Plus-Minus stat measures the positive or negative impact a player makes on his team while on the court.

"LeBron James has overcome lesser roster", he added.

The pilot steadfastly refused to answer any questions related to the mission he was on when his fighter jet was downed. He said in an aerial engagement, a MiG-21 Bison shot down one Pakistan Air Force jet, but India lost one MiG 21.

At 24-38, the Grizzlies are tied with the Wizards for the sixth-worst record this season.

Following another loss to a sub-.500 team Monday evening in Memphis, James continued to express his opinions.

"At this point, if you are still allowing distractions to affect how the way you play, then this is the wrong franchise to be a part of and you should just come and be like, 'Listen, I can not do this", James told reporters.

Those kind of comments are unlikely to endear him to a locker room which has reportedly been in turmoil since the team's pursuit of New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis ended in failure in early February. That courtship created a circus-like atmosphere around the Lakers, targeting numerous Lakers' younger players like Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, all who were mentioned in possible packages to acquire Davis. It was also a chance to further separate themselves from James and the Lakers.

"LeBron is right in criticising his teammates but if I were the Lakers I would shut LeBron down".

"He killed the Lakers' chemistry", the executive told Bleacher Report.

The Lakers have the talent to get back into the postseason push - see LeBron James' triple-double and Brandon Ingram's 32 points in Monday's loss to Memphis - but they don't have the luxury of time to waste.
