“LeBron is the player who has surprised me the most for all that it entails, which moves both on and off the court. As a player he is the most complete player, on the whole I think he is good at everything. His thought was to want to win every day , being the first and the last to leave but really, he doesn’t have days off when the season begins. And as a person he is super intelligent and you can talk to him about everything, “Calderón told DAZN, which is collected by Europa Press.
