LeBron James shows his teammates in the Los Angeles Lakers that it’s ‘championship time’, according to Kyle Kuzma.

Per Kuzma, it’s James’ defensive intensity this season that has motivated his teammates the most.

“Seeing him play defense just lights a fire under everyone’s butt. It’s championship time, and he’s just being a great leader by showing us the way.

Especially starting on the defensive end, (in) year 17 getting after it. He’s had great leadership throughout the quarantine, training camp and even now,” Kuzma said, via Christian Rivas of Silver Screen and Roll.
