Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Danny Green says superstar small forward LeBron James is good with taking criticism from coaches and teammates during film sessions.

Green says when coaches and teammates call out James, the four-time MVP takes ownership of his mistakes, something a lot of superstars don’t do:

“There’s so many, there’s not just one. He’ll take ownership when he does mess up,” Green told Erik Garcia Gundersen of LeBron Wire. “In a film session he will say that’s my box-out, that’s my x-out, that guy there was a miss. And we will tell him, ‘Bron you need to do this, we need to you be more aggressive, we need you to pass more, he’ll listen. He’ll actually take that with a positive attitude and actually apply it to the game to help our team.”

The Lakers are 17-3 on the season. Now that he’s healthy again and has Anthony Davis by his side, James is playing like an MVP.

James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 10.9 assists per game. He’s shooting 50.1 percent from the field, 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 68.1 percent from the free-throw line. The King has 16 double-doubles and five triple-doubles on the season.

The Lakers are coming off a home loss to the Dallas Mavericks. They will look to get back in the win column on Tuesday versus the Denver Nuggets.
