LeBron James hilariously explains why he wishes he was Justin Timberlake this late in his career

Justin Timberlake and LeBron James

So far this season, LeBron James is averaging a career low in minutes, yet his Los Angeles Lakers still have the NBA’s best record at 11-3.

After yet another blowout, this time against the New Orleans Pelicans, James was asked if playing fewer minutes will leave him with more energy later in the season, and he gave a funny response.

On Friday night, James played less than 31 minutes, yet his team had its way with the Pelicans, 112-95. Coming into the contest he was playing an average of 31.9 minutes a game this season.

Still, the four-time NBA champ is putting up his usual impressive numbers, averaging 24.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 7.5 assists a game coming into Friday. He’s arguably the frontrunner for the league MVP award at this point, as his team is comfortably ahead of the pack.

Pretty soon, James may need to start bringing his A game, as the Lakers will embark on a long road trip next week. It will include games against the Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.
