Cleveland Cavaliers superstar small forward LeBron James seems to be on a conditioning mission this offseason. Since the completion of the 2016-17 NBA campaign, the three-time champion has been spotted in gyms all across the country preparing for the upcoming season.

On Wednesday, James continued his offseason training by competing in a few games of pickup at UCLA’s campus with several talented young ballers, including LiAngelo Ball, Lavar’s youngest son. Believe it or not, James’ team was actually defeated in one of the practice games.

For the record, “the King,” as James has came to be known, didn’t lose every game that was played on Wednesday. According to Josiah Johnson, a former UCLA hooper, James’ squad took down one side that was led by Golden State Warriors teammates Draymond Green and Kevon Looney.

James, now 32 years of age and entering his 15th season in the association, is well-known for having a strict diet and workout routine. All of that hard work in the gym seems to be paying off, as James is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, his stats from last season prove just the opposite. In his 74 games played for the Cavs last season, James racked up averages of 26.4 points on 55 percent shooting from the field, 8.7 assists (career-high), 8.6 rebounds (career-high), and 1.2 steals in 37.8 minutes per contest.

Although it was just a few pickup games, this is one memory these NBA hopefuls will take with them for the rest of their lives.
