The New England Patriots are notorious for getting the best out of NFL castaways and players that have somewhat disappointed in their NFL careers. Whether it be Tom Brady or Bill Belichick's system, New England is known for finding the "diamonds in the rough."
The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night 114-110 and Doug Gottlieb was reminded of the Patriots while watching LeBron James. Gottlieb admits this is the oldest he's seen James look in his career, however, the NBA superstar is seemingly always able to get the best out of the players surrounding him. Gottlieb recounts the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers adding castaway pieces to ultimately get LeBron James to nine straight Finals appearances and he believes LeBron has a lot more New England Patriots to him than people realize.
