LeBron James shared his thoughts on the battle of the eighth place in the Western Conference, as five teams are fighting for the final spot in the playoffs.

The star of the Los Angeles Lakers said he has not bothered thinking about it at the moment. Whoever finishes eighth will face the Lakers in the first round of the playoffs.

“I’m not paying attention to what’s going on with the eighth seed right now, there’s too much that can happen. And then there’s play-in games to decide that, so it’s too far away right now,” James said, via Joe Vardon of The Athletic.
