LeBron James had his best performance of the season against the Milwaukee Bucks and the back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Lakers’ superstar seemed indifferent to the fact that he won the head-to-head battle versus the Milwaukee Bucks’ superstar.

“I can care less about that,” James said. “I try to play well and help our team win against any team.” I just wanted to see how we were going to play and then get the new guys acclimating to what we do as a culture on and off the floor.”

James finished the contest with 34 points shooting 13-of-25 from the field and 6-of-10 from the three-point area. He also had six rebounds and eight assists to go with one block and one steal.

The Lakers are maybe the deepest team in the league rotation-wise and they certainly dominate the Western Conference so far being the most consistent team.
