Watch footage from LeBron's latest pickup game.
A few weeks ago LeBron James took to twitter to ask his 37.8 million followers where the best pickup games were at, and he was summoned to every court in the country, including New York, Seattle and Cali. It wasn't long after that when LeBron was spotted in a star-studded pickup game in New York City that included Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, J.R. Smith, Lance Thomas and Enes Kanter.
Since then LeBron has reportedly been "obsessed" and is getting in as much practice and as many workouts as he can.
I've spoken to two people privy to LeBron's workouts the last couple weeks. They both used the word "obsessed" to describe his current state— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) August 23, 2017
Most recently, LeBron was seen on the West Coast, playing in pickup games at UCLA which have featured plenty of former and current NBA stars throughout the off-season. This time around, LeBron was joined by Aaron Gordon, Nick Young and Victor Oladipo, as well as UCLA freshman LiAngelo Ball, brother of Lakers rookie, Lonzo Ball. Footage from the pickup game exclusively shows LeBron dominating and toying with defenders, as expected.
NBA training camps will open up in roughly one month from now so LeBron only has a few more weeks left of searching for pickup games before he reunites with his Cavaliers teammates. Of course, he'll have some new faces to get familiar with when camp starts, as the Cavs recently traded Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and center Ante Zizic, as well as the Brooklyn Nets' unprotected 2018 first round pick.
Ironically, the Cavs will play host to the Celtics in the first game of the NBA regular season on Tuesday, October 17th.
Check out some footage from LeBron's recent run at UCLA below.
