Ultra-prolific on the floors of the Drew League, LeBron James seems motivated like never before for the 2022-23 campaign. The Laker has also made a very big revelation about his physical condition recently. As if it wasn’t scary enough already…
Last year, LeBron James was monstrous on an individual level, finishing the exercise with more than 30 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists on average. Figures without common measure, but which did not prevent the Lakers from missing the playoffs, finishing in 11th place in the Western Conference. Suffice to say that the winger certainly does not intend to relive that from the fall, and he is doing everything he can to be ready for the first game of the regular season.
Back in the Drew League for the first time in ten years, he also marked the spirits with a phenomenal performance, finishing notably with 42 points and 16 rebounds. Not only that, but the King also dropped a sentence that was anything but innocuous, at the microphone ofESPN. According to Dave McMenamin, he would have told journalists that his physical form would be perfect at the moment, while 2022-23 will only start in a few months:
LeBron back to 100% physically?!
New story: LeBron James told ESPN he is “100% healthy” coming off an injury-riddled season. That and more from an eventful day at the Drew League https://t.co/4ooNxP2Odu

LeBron told ESPN he will be “100% healthy” after an injury-plagued season.
After months of having to manage physical glitches in all directions, the Chosen One would therefore be back at the top of its abilities, at least compared to what it can produce at its age. This is absolutely terrifying news, and hard not to see it as a huge threat to the competition. Can L-Train take Californians to the top again? On the fan side, we allow ourselves in any case to believe it, especially after the disaster that was 2021-22:
League in shambles

LBJ is inevitable, the NBA is going to have to keep its eyes wide open. The King is back
If LeBron James is truly 100% back, then we can expect court carnage next year. Already incredible individually at 37, the winger could do it again by being even older. Hopefully this time it benefits the Lakers as well.
