LeBron James has made clear that he is not willing to part ways with the Los Angeles Lakers after a disappointing season, as he wants to win more titles with the franchise.
The Lakers failed to make it to the playoffs – or even the play-in game – following a dreadful campaign, which was marked by many injuries and saw head coach Frank Vogel, who was sacked on Monday, have to use numerous starting line-ups.
“I came here to win a title,” LeBron said.
“And I want to win more. I got what I wanted to win, but I’m still hungry.
“I’m sure the team want the same thing; this team have always gone for the win. I did it, we did it, but I want to do it again.”
LeBron is confident that the franchise will do what it takes to help the team bounce back and stressed that he is at their disposal in the event that they need his opinion.
“The front office is going to do whatever it takes to help this ball club become a better ball club from top to bottom,” James added.
“If they ask me my opinion, I’ll give them my opinion. But at the end of the day, they’re going to make the decisions they feel is best for the franchise.”
This season, LeBron shot 75.6 percent in free throws, with his record being 78 percent with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2008/09 season.
“I want to improve on the free throw line,” he noted.
“I’m down in free practice, I have to improve. Before Miami I was up in the table of that specialty, but then I lost it.”
