LeBron James reiterates that the Lakers camp is not worried about the Heat in these NBA Finals despite a crushing Game 3 loss.
LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers have just suffered one of the biggest upset losses in NBA Finals history, in tonight’s Game 3 against the Miami Heat.
With the Heat not having 2 of their starters in Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic, it was assumed by all, whether they be media members or trolls from the depths of the internet, that the Lakers would demolish the Heat in Game 3.
However, the feisty Heat just wanted it more this game and pulled away for the 115-104 victory.
Following the embarrassing loss, LeBron James was asked about how he felt going forward in this series, to which he gave a very nonchalant answer.
