LeBron James doesn’t get enough credit for being good teammate and person, per Alex Caruso

Lakers, LeBron James, Alex Caruso

Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso believes LeBron James doesn’t get enough credit for being a good teammate and person.

Everyone already knows about LeBron’s basketball prowess. The Lakers superstar is arguably the second-best player in NBA history behind Chicago Bulls legend and Hall of Famer Michael Jordan.

However, Caruso thinks James’ human nature and deeds as a teammate go unnoticed by most people:

“Yeah great teammate first and foremost. Good person,” Alex Caruso said about LeBron James, via Evan Daniels of CBS Sports.

“I don’t think he gets enough credit for that. You know, everybody likes to analyze his basketball game so much and there’s a lot to analyze cuz he’s really good, but he’s a heck of a teammate, great person, just one of the guys.”

LeBron and the Lakers had the top record in the Western Conference standings prior to playing getting suspended. James was averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists for the Lakers. He was in the MVP conversation.

Caruso has been solid for the Lakers in his bench role. The 26-year-old was putting up 5.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 17.8 minutes per contest.

If the 2019-20 season resumes, Los Angeles will have a record of 49-14. The Lakers had a 5.5 game lead over the Los Angeles Clippers in the West standings. The Purple and Gold were actually coming off two impressive wins prior to Rudy Gobert’s positive COVID-19 test.

The Lakers defeated the Milwaukee Bucks and Clippers at home.
