Video: Lakers forward LeBron James’ daughter Zhuri working out with him
LeBron James posted a workout video to his Instagram story, but this was not your typical NBA workout video. This time, James was working out with his daughter. Zhuri’s dad said she is working on her flexibility and her strength.
In terms of NBA workout videos, this is one of the better ones we’ve seen this year.

LeBron James used his offseason workouts to prepare for a new chapter in his career. The three-time NBA champion is following in the long list of Lakers greats over the years. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Jerry West, and Magic Johnson are just a few names.
James’ entire career will outshine all the names on that list, but he won’t top them in Lakers lore if he fails to deliver a championship. Until then, the Laker faithful will be patiently waiting for James to raise the Larry O’Brien Trophy for the first time since 2010. Most fan bases wouldn’t consider this a very long championship drought, but things are different in Los Angeles.
The Lakers chances of winning a championship look slim this season, but they should have enough cap space to sign another star to pair with James next summer. Additionally, the youth on the roster should give the Lakers cost-controlled players who play above their pay grade. Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma are exciting young talent and should continue to grow.
The Lakers begin their season on Thursday, Oct. 18 in Portland. The offseason workout videos are finally a thing of the past and fans can get back to watching basketball.
