Stephen Jesse Jackson, who played 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and had the opportunity to compete against Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, shared his insights on LeBron’s motivation:

“I think LeBron’s motivation has a lot to do with Kobe and has a lot to do with him, and what he wants to do for the Lakers. I don’t think he’s really worried about Giannis or Kawhi. LeBron knows his goal is to win a championship and the role he has to play,” Jackson said.
