Doug Gottlieb: "To me, this signifies that LeBron James is knowingly, willfully trying to play the psychological game and downplay the series. It doesn't mean that the Nuggets won't be a beast and will be tough to beat 4 times in 7 games, but why make it any harder on yourself? This is a rare spot where LeBron is the underdog and can be playing up being the underdog, can play up the fact that they beat their brains in, and he's downplaying it."

Doug Gottlieb gives his thoughts on why LeBron James is downplaying the Lakers' first round series with the Nuggets. Doug breaks down how LeBron is missing a rare opportunity to play up the true underdog narrative as his squad prepares to take on the defending champions.
