Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar LeBron James shares how he has to take care of his diet, even during the Super Bowl.
The Lakers got their affairs in order, as LeBron James powered them through in Double OT. The Lakers beat the Pistons 135-129 to stay unbeaten on their homestand. LeBron contributed 33 points and 11 assists, where he scored 8 of his 33 points in the Double OT alone.
Anthony Davis contributed 30 points, whereas Dennis Schroder also added 22 points. For the Pistons, Jeremi Grant scored 32 points. Josh Jackson has 28 points off the bench, 25 of which came in the second half of play. The Lakers blew a 17 point lead, mainly due to their 23 turnovers(their highest this season).
“Probably baked”: LeBron James cannot even enjoy Chicken Wings anymore
All athletes take care of their diets, as staying healthy is a big part of their profession. If you are someone like James, you have to take extra special care. LeBron, despite turning 36, has been in tremendous shape due to his diet and body conditioning.
As the Super Bowl nears, everyone, including the NBA stars prepare for a day full of action-packed entertainment. After last night’s game, LeBron James and Anthony Davis were asked about their Super Bowl plans.
LeBron James shared that at his age, he can’t eat whatever he wishes, unlike his partner, AD, who is 27. AD suggested that LeBron can at least enjoy some chicken wings, to which the King said only if they’re baked.
LeBron quipped that, at age 36, he can’t just eat whatever he wants during the Super Bowl … not like 27-year-old AD, who was sitting next to him. Davis suggested that he could at least have some wings. “Probably baked,” (not fried), LeBron responded.

LeBron James’ commitment towards his health and basketball should be taken as inspiration not only by athletes but by everyone. Even though the star is 36, he shows no signs of slowing down, as he led the team in the Double OT victory over the Pistons yesterday.
