Marc Gasol opened up about how LeBron James has helped speed up the process of adapting to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Gasol said he is ‘thankful’ for how well James communicates at all times.

“How well he communicates at all times. I really respect that and I’m very thankful. Me as a new guy, having him tell you the things they’re looking for and the things you can do better or are doing really good, it’s good.

It speeds up the process of being part of the team and being effective. How well he communicates is very positive,” Gasol told reporters, via Lakers Nation.

For his part, James has already expressed his satisfaction for the Lakers’ decision to sign Gasol in free agency.
