Houston in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday was another milestone for LeBron James.
He passed Derek Fisher for most playoff victories, with 162, but the record apparently came with a cost.
“I’m not going to tell you exactly what I do,’’ James said about how he’s stayed successful for so long. “Because I would be giving my opponents a lot of my ingredients. But let’s just say my wife is not enjoying what I do on a day-to-day basis inside the bubble getting ready for a game. Let’s just say that. I spent a lot of time, a lot of time on my body.”
It’s paying off again for the Lakers and James, who had 36 points, seven rebounds and five assists in Tuesday’s win.
The 35-year-old James had his wife, Savannah, join him in the NBA playoff bubble, but his three children stayed away, with James saying Sunday, “there’s nothing for them to do” at the quarantined site in Orlando. (NYPost)
