LeBron James has productive, informative meeting with Rob Pelinka, Darvin Ham

James is finalizing a destination to host the team’s annual minicamp prior to training camp, with San Diego being the likely landing space over Las Vegas, sources said. He’s hoping to build a better rapport with teammates before entering the 2022-23 season. The meeting was deemed productive and informative. Pelinka made his feelings clear that he wants James to retire as a Laker and promised to provide him with every resource possible to compete for a championship each year he’s with the organization, sources said.
Now in his 15th season, Durant says he is “growing every single day” and understands the game more as he adapts and evolves to the changes in the sport. And he says he is “more at ease” and relaxed mentally at this stage of his career as opposed to when he was younger. “[When you are younger] you want to establish yourself in the league,” Durant said Thursday after the Nets’ practice at their training camp at the University of San Diego. “Sometimes you may overthink it and may think too much about reactions and opinions of others because you are on the journey to perfection. But start to relax a little bit and understand what this is about and understand the long game, and it definitely made my mental a little bit more at ease coming to the gym every day and not focusing on that stuff.”
