"It's the fourth quarter and my teammates look at me to make plays", he explained. The Lakers are finally in a groove for the first time this season, having won 11 of their past 14 games.
Staggering Ball and James' playing time together is going to be crucial for the Lakers over the next few days.
James has been a huge reason why, as he scored 20 points in the fourth quarter of a one-man show, allowing LA to stave off embarrassment against the suddenly lowly San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday. Still, James has heard some comments over the past week from Lakers legends Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson - and some comments from Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant - on how he should play his game. I would love to see the whole transcript of what was asked of him, the context it was asked of him, why it was asked, and the whole thing.
As for Durant, he said. "How you can market and brand a team, how you can make the fan experience better?" Because Kyle Korver in Atlanta was the bulk of the offense, and he's not a No. 1 option at all, not even close.

Thursday and said five bombs had been placed throughout the facility inside the Time Warner building at Columbus Circle. In a tweet , CNN's Brian Stelter said the office had been evacuated and that CNN was airing taped programming.
Durant said he doesn't view Leonard as a fit for James. His hope here is Anthony will think he did his part to get him another job but it was the Lakers who would not do their part.
"If you're a younger player like a Kawhi [Leonard], trying to pair him with LeBron James doesn't really make sense. Like, young players that are still developing, it's always going to be hard because he demands the ball so much, he demands control of the offense and he creates for everybody".
Durant has been in the headlines once again this week following his comments about a toxic environment surrounding James.
But James and his camp still believe Anthony can play, that there could be a place for him as a contributor on a Lakers' team that is young and continues to battle injuries. "Bosh, same way", Durant said of Chris Bosh, James' former teammate with the Miami Heat. "They don't need another guy". And if such a plan were to seriously be put in place, Seattle's last great National Basketball Association player wants to be part of it. "It's a level of jealousy, it's a level of hating, I'm really surprised he went there because they seem to have a really good relationship".
