She’s more than a great Physical Therapist.

Not too long after the Lakers were eliminated from playoff contention, a Los Angeles-area physician shared an Instagram post reveals LeBron was a lot more hurt than what was being reported.

Dr. Karen Joubert, owner of Joubert Physical Therapy in Beverly Hills, posted a photo of her standing next to James with a lengthy caption addressing the recent groin strain that sidelined him for over a month.

Joubert commended LeBron for his commitment to his team and choosing to return to the court despite his pain.

“I want you all to know how bad his injury was and is, the pain he endured,” the doctor wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “Along with his amazing trainer, Mike Mancias, he was on the court in 6 weeks, it should have been 6 months. Unselfishly, he endured pain, pain, pain. He did not want to let the Lakers down, the fans down. But I know what he went through! I learned about determination, the will to win, how to get the job done. He is a force to be reckoned with. @kingjames @mikemancias1.”

Check out the post below: 

LeBron averaged 27.4 points, 8.1 assists, and 8.5 rebounds within 52 games during the 2018-19 season.

LeBron had a tough first season, and I doubt he asked her to say anything, but making excuses for LeBron, even if it isn’t him, is weak. LeBron is better than that, and I hope his PT would be too.
