The coach of Los Angeles Lakers, Frank Vogel, he commented that he hopes that LeBron James is playing on average, between 34 and 36 minutes for the season that is about to start.
Similarly, Vogel assured that he does not want James to play all 82 games, something that James has only achieved once in his career, and it was in the 2017-2018 season, when he was still part of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
While Vogel does not want to overexploit his top star, he did not mean to say that he is going to give LeBron nights off, or that he is going to restrict the minutes of play, since he knows that James is a vital piece for the success of the team, that they have goal number 18 for Lakers.
You have to remember that LeBron will be playing his season number in the NBA, and will turn 37 on December 30. James was selected No. 1 in the 2003 Draft, and since then he has surpassed all expectations, becoming one of the greatest players of all time.
The Lakers debut this Tuesday, October 19 at 8:00 p.m. (Pacific time), against the Golden State Warriors.

LeBron averaged 25 points, 7.7 rebounds, 7.8 assists, and 1.1 one steals per game last season with the Lakers, in which he also played the fewest career games at 45, due to injuries that plagued him most of the year. .
