After two consecutive losses to the Orlando Magic and the Denver Nuggets, the Los Angeles Lakers needed inspiration heading into their four-story family.
When the president of basketball operations, Magic Johnson, and general manager Rob Pelinka took over, they began to “talk about genius,” where the most successful people in various industries attend the UCLA Health Training Center.
Kendrick Lamar, Duane "The Rock" Johnson and Allison Felix have already visited LeBron James and company in the 2018–19 NBA season.
Denzel Washington, a longtime fan of the Lakers, was the last guest, and he could not come at a great time. James enjoyed the visit and provided his favorite films, in which the actor starred, which was a daunting task.
“My beloved?” Said James. “It's like asking me about my favorite Jay Z albums. The three best ones will be“ The Man on Fire ”,“ He Got the Game ”. Obviously everyone wanted to be Jesus Shuttleworth; for me personally, I did it, ”said James during the shootout.
“I would say that these two are from the very beginning. I love so many of his films. "Remember the Titans", "John Q", "Day of Education", who can forget about it? Of course."
Washington, speaking to the Lakers, also resonated for James in that he sees him as a role model and source of inspiration. James explained that Washington was especially helpful to him when he was growing up.
As the Lakers started from 11-9 to 20 games, there has been a debate about their performance so far. With eight new players, some believe that this is a decent record in these circumstances, while others believe that they need to make a deal.
Since the Western Conference is relentless, there is pressure on the Lakers to win games now. Since the Clippers and the Golden State Warriors are currently tied to a better album, they only have a five-game game on the Houston Rockets, which are number 14 at the conference.
Since Washington is one of the greatest actors of all time, he is able to uniquely relate to what the Lakers are going through and put the situation in perspective.
