Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James stressed the importance of hitting the reset button during the upcoming All-Star break.

According to’s Dave McMenamin, James said Tuesday after a 117-113 road loss to the Atlanta Hawks that those not taking part in the All-Star festivities would benefit from removing themselves from the basketball bubble for a few days: ”You got to decompress and get away from the game a little bit. Those guys will have a lot more time than I will, obviously. I’ll be right back into it in two days. But just get fresh, get your minds right, get your bodies right. Come back with the notion that we’ll make the playoffs.”

With Tuesday’s loss, the Lakers fell to 28-29, and they are 2.5 games behind the Sacramento Kings for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
