Lebron is a control freak. He c trols everything around him. Or he shuts down . See his Spurs game couple years back. He sets up the world around him. His treatment of IT4 .....don't mess with my world . Mr Blatt !
I have thought for years Bron maybe playing hurt more than people think. Being hurt costs him money , and money IS his gig.
Image is everything in NBA. He is possibly to the point that no amount of rest cures everything , although i have speculated this for a while. Cronic pain has set in. Im old and i know how the deal goes , if your 21 , you think ...oh he ll be back ....sorry thats not the way father time works kids.
Bron holding the image , managing pain best he can , hoping LA will get DA and Kawhi to shoulder his burden . CP3 is a walking injury and Wade retires, writing on the wall .
I suspect the actual job Bron wants
Belongs to Magic Johnson
