LeBron not anxious about playoffs: You 'make it or you don't'

LeBron James on Lakers potentially missing playoffs: 'You either make it or you don't make it'

LeBron James not worried about playoffs after Lakers loss

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James is the NBA's highest-paid player for the fifth consecutive year with $88.7 million in earnings - including $53 million off the court, according to a Forbes list published Tuesday.

LeBron James is used to copping his fair share of criticism and hate from fans - and those attending during his latest match in Atlanta weren't going to miss out on the opportunity to throw some shade at the three-time National Basketball Association champion.

"You could say it's an affect from the injury and he's still not there, but he doesn't look that good to me", Parker said on Fox Sports' The Undisputed.

LeBron James had one of his best statistical games of the season on Tuesday night, putting up 28 points, 11 rebounds, 16 assists and three steals to record his second triple-double in three games.

"I know he put up numbers, he filled the stat sheet".

"They've lost eight of 11 and LeBron's back now".

"You either make it or you don't make it", James said after tying Wilt Chamberlain for the fifth most triple-doubles ever with 78.

"I told you, they painted themselves in such a bad corner where their margin of error is so slim".

"You can't beat the Atlanta Hawks in a game you had to win?"

The Lakers have copped it from away crowds recently, with Brandon Ingram on the receiving end from Pacers fans in the last week or so, after he was linked with numerous trades to land Pelicans star Anthony Davis.

James and co return to action on Thursday night against the Houston Rockets (3:30am tip off).
