LeBron James joined the Los Angeles Lakers this summer and he brings high expectations with him.

His arrival has transformed the Lakers from a team which missed out on the playoffs to one which many believe could potentially dethrone the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference.

Whatever team LeBron plays for, he expects as close to perfection as possible, as that's what he brings to the table in every single game he plays in.

Training with his new teammates, however, may not be going perfectly so far, especially if a story by the Lakers' general manager is true.

According to Harrison Feigen of SB Nation, Rob Pelinka recently shared a story about when a teammate dropped LeBron’s pass the other day because he didn’t expect it.

It led to the following exchange between the two players, but the other player is yet to be identified.

LeBron said: “Man do you like your nose?" to which the unnamed player replied: “Yeah…”

James responded by saying: “Well get your hands ready, or I’m gonna break your nose!”

Many people are now trying to figure out who the player was that LeBron was angry with, with most guesses suggesting it was likely a rookie.

When you play with the King, you better not drop any of his passes, otherwise, you'll probably find yourself out of the team quicker than you realize.

We all know about the Lakers star's frustration with players on the court when they do something ridiculous.

Most people will remember the reaction LeBron had when J.R. Smith decided to dribble the ball away from the basket instead of taking on a shot to try and win the game near the end of Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals against the Warriors.

The Lakers player in question will have to make sure his mistakes don't carry on into the new season, otherwise, he'll probably won't be LeBron's teammate for much longer.
