LeBron James:

    Isiah Thomas doesn’t think Michael Jordan or LeBron James is the GOAT. Detroit Pistons legend Isiah Thomas finally made his feelings on the eternal NBA GOAT debate known. LeBron James and Michael Jordan both missed out on the top spot. Considering how Jordan and Thomas often butted heads on and off the court, this can hardly come as a surprise. Thomas said that as of right now, Los Angeles Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the greatest player of all-time. However, he did leave some room for LeBron to eventually take the crown, saying that James will likely be better than Kareem in his eyes by the time he retires. Isiah Thomas says Kareems the GOAT, but LeBron is coming for...

    ESPN host Max Kellerman blamed “extremist, right-wing agitators” for a “big percentage” of recent riots. “When he talks about, like, Black Lives Matter, 93% of the protests are peaceful. The vast, overwhelming majority are peaceful. And, by the way, the 7% that are not — they have a very broad definition of what’s not, quote on quote, peaceful,” Kellerman said on Tuesday’s edition of First Take. “For example, if you block traffic or something like that, or if you respond to police provocation. And even then, a big percentage of that, that wasn’t peaceful, is actually outside agitators — extremist, right-wing agitators posing as protesters in order to make the protests look bad.” Kellerman was responding to a...

    LeBron James had a dismal fourth quarter against the Denver Nuggets. His two turnovers and 1/6 shooting allowed Denver to take a one-point lead prior to the final possession of the game.

    Getty Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis. You never quite know what you are going to get from a press conference with Lakers star LeBron James. On Sunday, after Anthony Davis’ Game 2 buzzer-beating 3-pointer to beat the Nuggets in the NBA‘s Western Conference finals, James gave us a range of references, including one from a 110-year old speech from former President Teddy Roosevelt and another about soiling one’s own trousers—or, more directly, “s— their pants.” Davis made a 3-pointer after the Lakers trailed by one point with 2.1 seconds to play. The shot went down as time expired, giving L.A. the victory and a 2-0 edge in the series. In the postgame press conference, the focus...

    About two years ago, LeBron James made a move that rocked the NBA. After spending 15 years in the Eastern Conference with the Cavs and Heat, LBJ jumped to the West and completed a sensational move to the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Let’s be totally honest about what happened Sunday night. LeBron James won a game for the Lakers by standing still.

    The NBA Playoffs are in their final stretch, with only four teams remaining. In the Western Conference, the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets are battling for a spot in the finals. While the Lakers hold a 1-0 lead, the Nuggets have already established themselves as the comeback kings. The Nuggets roster must be pretty exhausted at this point in the Playoffs. They not only played in two consecutive seven-game series but made astonishing 3-1 comebacks as well. Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray are playing with a sense of emergency, and it’s been working pretty well for the team. But the Lakers are on a different level than other teams in the Playoffs.

    LeBron James has had the pleasure of playing with several NBA all-time greats. From Dwyane Wade to Anthony Davis, LBJ has shared the locker room with many superstars, but statistically, they are not his best teammates. Can you who is it? It’s Alex Caruso! Yes, the Carushow is the best teammate that LBJ has ever had per advanced stats. Moreover, the duo’s connection is clearly visible on the floor as well. James trusts Caruso during crunch moments of the game, which was on full display vs the Houston Rockets. In the dying minutes of the game, Caruso made an important three for the Lakers in Game 4 of the WCSF. He was assisted by the 35-year-old LeBron James on that...
    Will Russell Westbrook join forces with LeBron James and Anthony Davis next season?

With their inability to fully dominate the Western Conference and win the NBA championship title, there are speculations that the Rockets may consider trading Westbrook in the 2020 offseason. The Rockets may have a hard time moving him due to his massive contract, but there will surely be teams, especially those who are in dire need of additional star power and a backcourt boost, that will express strong interest in adding the former MVP to their roster this fall. One of the...

While James is all about winning his fourth Larry O’Brien Trophy, individual accolades still hold weight with him as he chases Michael Jordan’s ghost. James is 35 years old, meaning he doesn’t have many true MVP seasons left.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo has won the league MVP for the second consecutive year. But for him, it is nothing but yet another accolade added to his resume. The Milwaukee Bucks are already out of the Playoffs, despite having the best record in the league. Moreover, the Bucks were eliminated in embarrassing fashion as they couldn’t beat the fifth-seeded Heat. Jimmy Butler and the Bucks defended the ‘Greek Freak’ well and forced him to play outside his comfort zone. Giannis became only the third player to win both the MVP and the DPOY in the same year, joining the elite company of Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon. All things considered, Giannis still had an insane regular season. He averaged 29.5 points coupled...
