LeBron James Praises TJ McConnell: A Look at the Pacers’ Standout Player

Now aged 39, LeBron James continues to leave his mark on the NBA courts. During his career spanning three decades, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar has rubbed shoulders with many stars. But as he recently revealed, the current player who most impresses the “King” is none other than TJ McConnell (Indiana Pacers).

Two weeks ago, LeBron James revealed, alongside the former player JJ Reddick, a podcast called “Mind the Game.” In the last episode of the latter, number 23 revealed a surprising anecdote concerning one of his favorite players in the current NBA.

“One of the best and favorite players in the NBA is TJ McConnell”

“Right now, one of the best favorite players in the NBA is TJ McConnell. TJ McConnell is the equivalent of Draymond Green at the point guard position,” said LeBron James. Author of 10 points and more than 5 assists on average per game, number 9 of the Indiana Pacers is a real Swiss army knife as recognized JJ Redick : “There are players who can come into play, and that changes the course of a match. Payton Pritchard is like that. Ish Smith is like that,” said the former trigger, in comments relayed by Basket USA.

“I saw it, and it’s obviously very gratifying”

Asked about these praises spoken by “King James” himself, TJ McConnell obviously appeared very happy: “I saw it, and it is obviously very gratifying. Let him underline what I’m doing here… But all this wouldn’t be possible without my teammates,” said the 32-year-old. Star of Pacers, Tyrese Haliburton also validated the words of LeBron James : “It’s really cool, and it’s hard not to like TJ’s game. Especially considering what he’s been doing these last two months, what he’s been doing. He is incredible. He’s one of, if not the best, backup point guards in the league. I’m very grateful to be able to count on him on nights when I’m not playing, grateful to have a guy I can play with as well.”
