I came here to win.

In February, LeBron James confirmed that Space Jam 2, the sequel to Michael Jordan's crossover 1996 film, will begin filming this coming summer. We have an opportunity to get better. This sentiment is shared by James, who in a sit down interview with Allie Clifton of Spectrum SportsNet made it clear that he understands what the Laker faithful is feeling right now.

The Los Angeles Lakers are winding down what has been yet another disappointing campaign that will see them miss the playoffs for a sixth consecutive season - a franchise record.

The 34-year-old National Basketball Association superstar said he planned to play an active role in helping the Lakers front office build a winning team. It was well publicized that James had a lot of leverage in terms of player and personnel movements during his time with the Cavaliers - both in his first and second stint with the franchise. "It's like we're either competing for a championship or winning championships, and I love that".

For Cowherd, it seems the mindset of Johnson is to hire coaches and get players who will be liked by James.


Obviously LeBron missing 27 games this season would not have been something I would have thought would've been the case going into this year, considering the most amount of games he's missed in a regular season was 20 back 2011-12 with the Miami Heat.

The stakes are considerable for all, but perhaps highest for the Lakers.

James, who joined the Lakers previous year in a blockbuster move, meanwhile acknowledged that the clock was ticking if he wants to add to his collection of National Basketball Association titles in the twilight of his career.

James said he's positive "the franchise will be great" in the near future. "But for me personally, it's very critical, because I want to compete and I want to compete now". "I'm very confident in that".
