Genius idea

Kendrick Lamar, the first rapper to win the Pulitzer for music, visited with the Lakers at their team facility on Friday as part of their "Genius Series."

General manager Rob Pelinka started it last year when the team invited some of the most successful people in different industries to talk to the team throughout the season.

"It's funny 'cause sometimes you don't talk to other people that are at the top of their craft, and when you talk to them, you see the parallels," Lakers guard Josh Hart said. "When he gets ready for a show, he lets all the negativity out. He doesn't party. He doesn't do certain things before shows because he wants to be dialed [in], he wants to be focused for him to get his message across in that show and people who pay money to see him."

Last season, the Lakers has speakers such as actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, Hollywood heavyweight Jeffrey Katzenberg and Olympic and world champion sprinter Allyson Felix to share their secrets to success.

LeBron was pretty impressed with himself for having access to all these other stars. 

Life as a Lakers player can be pretty glamorous.
