The return of LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers roster is getting closer. Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe thinks it will happen this coming Monday.
One of the impacts that is expected from his return is the ‘unlocking’ of Andre Drummond’s potential in offense. But, for the 27-year-old center, it is hard to comprehend what it will be like to play alongside James.
“You know what, I don’t think my brain can process what type of opportunities will come from him being on the court,” Drummond said. “Right now we can’t control without him being in there right now. We got to work with the guys that are playing right now.
“So we got to worry about building that chemistry with them. And when he does come, I’m sure great things will happen for everybody.”
Drummond is averaging a double-double of 11.9 points and 10.5 rebounds over 11 games for the reigning NBA champions.
