LeBron James opened up about how he felt in his return to action and reacted to the three-game losing streak of the Lakers.

James said he felt like a rookie after missing two and a half weeks with an abdominal strain. He also noted he need a day to understand where he is at physically.

The four-time NBA champion also said the Lakers will need a sense of urgency, even if it is still early in the season. Los Angeles has lost three straight and has an 8-9 record. LeBron James spent 32 minutes on the floor and had 23 points, on 10/16 shooting, in the loss to the Celtics (108-130).
