Stay healthy Lebron


He's on a mission for sure... We probably seeing a preview of playoff Lebron.

Congrats on becoming just the third player in NBA history with 1,000 games of 20pts or more.

BTW, we should really think about resting AD and/or LBJ against the Warriors or against the Kings next week.

It shouldn't be up to the player.

Kobe didn't want to be load managed that season with Dantoni, and I will never forgive Dantoni and rest of the cooaching staff for letting him get his way.

He's playing career low minutes. Idk what everyone is so worried about. Injuries happen there's no way around it. If it happens it happens. You think sitting out a game here and there is going to prevent the inevitable? Cmon.

GOAT mentality.

I would worry less if he rest a match from time to time against bad teams.

Damn Kawhi for even making this a topic. Every NBA star is having to address this now.

One of my favorite plays of the night.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVqKzWJnEjc

The look on Leonard's face at the end.

He looked like the kid who got pushed during recess looking over at the teacher to do something.

Lebron is ascending from King to Godlike status. Not like a singular God, but like a religion with multiple Gods. Like Hinduism, or the more realistic and scientifically accurate Greek Mythology.

*LeBron James makes history as Lakers handle Heat


Quote:
With 25 points on Friday, James became just the third player in NBA history to have at least 1,000 games with 20 more points. The other players? Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, two players that also donned the purple and gold during their illustrious careers

Lol...I think the word you're looking for is gods, not God.

If our guy could hit shots (Kuz, KCP, Cook, Caruso, Daniels) we'd be extending leads that our starting 5 gave us. A few times now we've needed LeBron and AD to come back in and bring it home.

I'm hoping this will happen. He looked super tired tonight


Couldn't even stand for the post game interview with MT




He’s putting in the effort on D and while carrying our offense at times. That’s got to be exhausting!!


It's why I hope Rondo comes back soon. Maybe another playmaker alleviates the burden.

So much rests on Kuz. If he takes a step forward this year it will help A LOT


Totally agree and I was on the nots play Rondo that much train earlier but I think the Lakers need him now lol. Plus Kuz like you said needs to step it up👍


Shots still need to be made

So far he is outplaying Kawhi by quite a bit on the defensive end.. Like not even close at least of the 3-4 games i've watched of the Clippers. Obviously it's still way too early to get very serious about any season long achievements but up to this point it's not even close. Like I said before, it doesnt even look right when I type it but it's pretty clear thus far at least imo.

"I think he picks his spots on when to be assertive and when to play for his teammates," Lakers coach Frank Vogel said of James, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"Throughout all that while he is picking his spots, he's going to be in attack mode. He is going to read the defense."

I’ve said this in the AD thread...Kawhi hasn’t played all-nba level defense since he left the Spurs. He was horrible last year in the regular season for the most part and while he did ramp up his effort in the playoffs...he still wasn’t the lockdown player he was in San Antonio

And so far this year...that trend looks to be the same

Seems like he's saving things for the 4th quarter.
If the voters can realize that, LeBron should get 1st team over Kawhi. Assuming bron continues the defense throughout the year.
