The Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been dominating the league for twenty years, currently in his year 21 in his career in the NBA and while many have compared playing alongside the King to many things, no one has done it in a hilarious but simple way like former Lakers forward Stanley Johnson.

LeBron James is known to make his teammates better, to have a high Basketball IQ and kind of a coach and a mentor. When asked: "What's it like playing with LeBron?" As a fan on social media, Johnson replied with: "Prolly like driving a Tesla or having a diet with a chef."

Then, Stanley expanded his answer for everyone to understand what he meant as he also posted: "All you gotta do is breathe and participate," regarding LeBron making the game easy for the rest. Johnson and James were Lakers teammates during the 2021-22 season. The 27-year-old played last season for the San Antonio Spurs and is currently not in the NBA.

His comparison of playing with James to driving a Tesla resonates because of the self-driving capabilities of the well-known electric cars – just sit back and it’ll get people where they want to go. Equating the experience to having a chef help out when watching a diet also rings true, as James has proven entirely capable of mixing ingredients and improving the performances of his teammates.
