LeBron James is getting a ton of blame for the Los Angeles Lakers’ failures this season, but forward Kent Bazemore is coming to his teammate’s defense … telling TMZ Sports LeBron did everything he could to help the Lakers win.

Bazemore was also asked if there’s still some appeal for him to return to the team, and he said there “for sure” is.

“What I’ll say is nothing ain’t much better than being a Laker, right?” Bazemore said. “So, getting to see Kob numbers on the wall every day I went to practice was good inspiration for me. … There’s nothing like it, man.”

This season, Bazemore played in 39 games and averaged merely 3.4 points and 1.8 rebounds per contest while shooting 32.4 percent from the floor.
