LeBron James is extremely disciplined and sticks to his schedule, says his former teammate Kendrick Perkins. It is so strict that Perkins even compared it to the president’s one. Bu, the thing that impressed the former NBA champion the most is the way that the Los Angeles Lakers superstar takes care of his body.

“His days are scheduled… and it is not just done by his group of people, it’s done by him also. People don’t understand that he is so disciplined. He goes to the bed at a certain time… during the week his stuff is scheduled, every single thing is scheduled, he moves like the president,” Perkins said, “But the thing that impresses me the most is that I’ve never seen an athlete take care of his body the way that LeBron James does. I have watched this guy leave practice, do a three-hour commercial, go get treatment, go work out again, call me and say ‘Hey, we’re going to dinner’, go to dinner.”
