James acknowledged in October the Lakers want to reduce his minutes, but the four-time MVP said he still feels strong enough to play most minutes. "How much do I defer and allow some of our young guys to figure out, and how much do I try to take over games?" "Those guys have the ability to make plays as well".

Victor Oladipo sat out his sixth straight game for IN with a sore right knee, but the Lakers still needed James and some strong defense to close it out.

He famously walked out on them back in 2013, taking Adam Sandler with him, as the Lakers were defeated by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

"That's the challenge I've been kind of battling with since the season started", James said. Walton has adjusted, and now when James is running the show, Walton will typically just let him call the game.

"Basically minutes, trying to make sure we don't overplay him and then also usage of the ball in his hands", Johnson told SiriusXM NBA Radio.
