The Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is considered one of the most intelligent basketball players in the NBA. He takes time to prepare for the games and studies his opponents.

After the game versus the Chicago Bulls, LeBron talked about how he prepares and studies other teams. “I study the teams, I prepare for the teams every day leading up to the game,” James said.

“Watched film on them yesterday. I watched their game yesterday versus Charlotte. And I watched a lot of film this morning. Just tried to get accustomed to a lot of the sets that they run so I can keep my guys prepared, keep them a little bit ahead of the play. Just being very knowledgeable about some of the sets that they like to run.”
