STILL better than the Cavs...
any way you slice it...
I will say...the Lakers COULD have a lot more wins, BUT Lebron is letting the young guys figure it put he wants to get them in every scenario possible and for him not have to takeover games. He did enough of that in Cleveland. When people say Lebron doesnt look as dominant this year and he hasn’t had that HUGE game like we see, who cares. Well first off, he is playing more off the ball. Secondly, at times he lets the young guys do their thing kinda like he did with Kyrie in Cleveland (you see how that turned out, they won a ship). These are even younger guys with even less experience so it will take time. Lebron knows exactly what he is doing, just like always. He is 20 steps in front of everyone right now and he probably knows he is coming to the Lakers next year or an idea of who he wants. 5-6 going through that rough stretch without Lebron taking over, without Ingram for 4 games, without Rondo in 3...not bad at all. Lebron is still the most dominant player in the world and it still isnt close. He probably needs to play a little better defense but really the last of his worries.
Ohh btw he is still getting 27, 8 and 8 lol
Exactly. He did the same things in Miami and his return to the Cavs. The broadcasters were actually talking about that during a recent Lakers game. He likes to see what he has around him and what they can do.
It's kind of like a players version of what Phil Jackson used to do when his team would be playing poorly and he'd refuse to call timeout. He wanted them to figure it out for themselves. He was willing to lose a game here and there if he felt there was a bigger lesson that would help them in the playoffs.
Imo, Lebron is taking a bit of a risk by playing a little bit of the "long game" this late in his career. He's basically betting that he can stay healthy and continue to play at a high level while waiting for the kids to develop and the Lakers to get another top guy.
He could "go all Lebron", dominate every game they play and they'd have a much better record right now.
But what would the kids learn from that? How would that help their development?
They'd get to the playoffs with a better seed, but likely have a worn out Lebron and a bunch of kids who still don't know how to play in tough games.
Yeah but it's only 10/11 games into the season. Let's see where those 3 teams will be w/ 10 games remaining in the season.
But to answer your question I have no idea. Memphis?
Hey, hey, hey! If you ignore all the problems the Cavs have this year they aren't that bad of a team.
What's dumb about the statement? Cleveland's 1-10 this year. Change my mind.
can he include the moving goalposts...?
What happened to Miami (College Football) this year? I was expecting big things from them
Maybe one of the other games, they play 4 times.
they are Miami....the "Nebraska of the South".
I'm taking a break from Kings bets, especially in games where they won't be favored(which is most of them).
Grizzlies then Clippers.
cmon man a little homerism now and then is ok
Kings might have the 12th best chance in the West to make the playoffs, that's the best I can do.
That's some cold Shit.
Because, they are PRAYING LeZION is coming to save them.
Yes I do.
Cleveland's roster fits LeBron better for sure. But the Lakers have far more talent, and it isn't close.
Now, if the fit isn't better next season in LA, Magic will have some serious questions to answer.
the difference in Cleveland and Miami it was a matter of getting All Star talents- high level all star talents, like Kyrie and Love and Bosh and Wade on the same page.
I understand your comparison in LA, but if LeBron is taking a back seat, that means a 20 year old Ingram or Ball, who are just not nearly equipped to handle that responsibility like Kyrie or Wade or Bosh or Love were- have to rise up like that.
LeBron doesnt have the horses like he is used to right now. On top of that, he is playing the hardest schedule of his career. Kyrie Irving can average 25 a game and lead the team in scoring- and in fact he did one year with LeBron- Kevin Love can go for 18 and 10 and lead the team in rebounds.
