Lakers head coach David Fizdale made a very interesting comment about LeBron James and how valuable he is to the team.

According to Fizdale, the Lakers could ‘clone’ James to avoid collapse when the four-time NBA champion is on the bench.

“Do you know any good scientists? Can we make a duplicate? I don’t know,” David Fizdale told reporters afterwards, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

LeBron James went for a game-high 39 points (14/25 shooting) in 40 minutes, yet the Lakers lost to the Brooklyn Nets on Christmas Day.
