James was critical of his own mistakes following the loss to the Nuggets.

‘I wasn’t aggressive enough in a lot of my turnovers,’ James said after turning the ball over eight times in L.A.’s loss to the Nuggets. 

‘I was coming off a lot of screens, looking to pass, get guys involved, and I wasn’t aggressive enough.’ 

Correcting James turnovers won’t help the biggest issue the Lakers had on Wednesday which was the fact that they shot 8-30 from 3-point range. 

The 26.7 percent they shot on Wednesday made them officially the worst 3-point shooting team through the first four games of the season in league history according to ESPN Stats & Information. 

The Lakers face the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday night as they look to avoid going 0-5 and end their nightmare start.
