LeBron James looks particularly hungry and alert ahead of the upcoming season. This week it was announced in the United States that King James has organized a short pre-season camp for the Lakers players separately from the traditional camp that will begin next week, with the aim of getting in shape earlier than usual. But it seems that when it comes to his fitness, LeBron has been working all summer: according to Lakers general manager Rob Plinka, James took advantage of the vacation months to undergo a physical makeover, and get to the upcoming season particularly thin.



James weighed about 113 kg last season, but this season he has set himself the goal of maintaining a lower weight of at least 5 kg, in order to be more agile, faster and more explosive, even at a price that will be a little less wide and strong.



"What's unusual about LeBron now is his fitness. He's in fantastic shape, and he lost quite a few pounds in the summer," said Plinka. "We all know that LeBron follows all the past legends of the game and learns from them.

I think he has reached a stage in his career where he has decided to be thinner and more agile.

It will surely significantly improve his explosive power and speed with and without the ball. "

In connecting the Lakers, who added 10 new players during the break



. See it in every workout. There is a sense that he trusts his teammates. When he looks around the dressing room and sees the names, or when he is with them on the parquet, you can just see that he trusts these guys. He knows what this group can do and where it can go if everyone is united. "



LeBron fantasizes about a fifth career career and a second in the Lakers uniform, despite Brooklyn’s significant strengthening marked as a favorite to go all the way.

"It's certainly possible, but it all depends on the attitude of the players," Flika claims.

"Right now the team seems to be united around a common desire and goals. Everyone wants to make the player next to them grow. That's what LeBron is trying to instill in the team, because he just believes in it."
