The Los Angeles Lakers went over the 50 percent mark due to Wednesday’s win against the San Antonio Spurs and Dennis Schröder did not hold back on his praise for LeBron James.

(via Mike Trudell):

“What he brings to the table every night is just amazing … I’ve played against him a bunch. It’s incredible to see. Now playing with him … such a good person as well, trying to help, being a leader. He’s a hell of a teammate, hell of a player, a legend.”

The newly acquired Lakers’ guard called James a legend praising him for being consistent night in night out. James celebrated his birthday on a basketball court with another exceptional performance.

He put up 26 points, eight assists, and five rebounds to lead the Lakers over the San Antonio Spurs (121-107). Schröder followed him with 21 points having a great start in the Lakers’ uniform.

That was his second consecutive game with over 20 points in a game, as he had 24 in Tuesday’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
