Harrell joined the Lakers last month during the free-agency period. It’s clear that he has a deep level of respect for the veteran who’s in the early stages of his 18th NBA season.

After Marreese Speights criticized James, Harrell offered a cryptic message that seemed to defend his new teammate.

Moreover, James enthusiastically endorsed the signings of both Harrell and guard Dennis Schroder.

Since James and Harrell have been playing together with the Lakers, the four-time MVP has spoken about how Harrell and Schroder have served as motivating forces for both him and Anthony Davis.

James may not be able to play against the San Antonio Spurs on his birthday as he continues to nurse an injured ankle. Recently, he was listed as questionable for the contest.

Only time will tell if James is able to suit up to celebrate his birthday.
