In awe of the king's dominance in his 17th season in the league, Brooks told the media after the game that James should have more MVPs than the four he has already collected.

Anthony Davis and LeBron James said that the Los Angeles Lakers had higher aspirations following a 125-103 win over the Washington Wizards, their 10th straight in a row.

"We just want to learn from our previous situations", James said. We want to continue to learn from that.

Wizards' head coach Scott Brooks saw first-hand how James methodically dismantled his defense from start to finish by either shoving his teammates down or tracking him down and scoring himself.

Buchnevich scored at 14:14 of the first period to make it 1-0, and Chytil's goal at 6:21 of the second extended the lead to 2-0. As awesome as the overtime and game-tying goals were, they only happened because the Bruins were excellent on the penalty kill.

"The greatest teacher in life is experience, and we've had times where we've had leads and we didn't play as well as we would like to, and tonight we learned from that and we got better". Everything is going even better than expected: the franchise added its 16th success in 18 games and solidifies its position as the best team in the National Basketball Association. This is a long process, and we can never shortcut it.

According to a report from Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix, player agents around the league were upset that they could not sign with the Lakers because James didn't give his team's front office the green light. They demand greatness every single day, and it starts from the top and trickles through the whole organization. Hopefully they'll continue to build good habits because they can't afford to have lapses in effort against teams looking to leapfrog them in the standings.

The Lakers, though, enter December with the NBA's best record, and they're ready for stiffer competition.
