It appears that LeBron James is ready to take matters into his own hands.
After not making the playoffs in his first year in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform, King James has decided to place more of an emphasis on team chemistry. With that in mind, the former NBA MVP is organizing a team minicamp prior to the start of regular training camp, so the roster can bond and get to know each other on a more personal level before they hit the ground running.
There will be a lot of new faces around the Lakers organization -- most notably following the Anthony Davis trade -- and LeBron feels that the roster needs its own time away from the coaches and other personnel so the newcomers can get truly acclimated to the environment.
James continues to reinvent himself as a basketball player, once again taking on the leadership role and doing the little things that transform a good team into a great one.
