"The LeBron James of Feet": Why Lakers Star Didn't Get Season-Ending Surgery

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James admitted he almost underwent season-ending surgery until he met "the LeBron James of feet."

Via SportsCenter:

He said what?

Jokes aside, James did also say he is still unsure whether he will get surgery during the offseason. He did inform reporters they would not hear of it should he decide to go under the knife.

James also revealed he suffered a torn tendon in his right foot. Any normal human being would have taken over four weeks to recover from that injury. But not The King.

The Lakers forward made his long-awaited return to the court on Sunday, when they took on the Chicago Bulls at home. He came off the bench, making it just the second time he did so in his entire career.

But his comeback wasn't enough to lift the Lakers to a win. Los Angeles lost to Chicago, 118-108 at home.

James finished with 19 points, eight rebounds, and three assists. 

With the loss, the Lakers fell back below .500 and now sit at the 9th seed with a 37-38 record. 

The 38-year-old missed 13 games with the injury, where Los Angeles went 8-5. The Lakers could return to breakeven when they look to avenge their loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.
