THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS PICKED UP THE VICTORY AS THEY CAME BACK FROM A EARLY 18 PT DEFICIT IN THE 2ND QT.

123 LOS ANGELES LAKERS

107 CHICAGO BULLS

STYLE OF PLAY:

LEBRON ABSOLUTELY LIVED IN THE PAINT! DUNKING ALL OVER THE HELPLESS BULLS.

WHAT I APPRECIATE?

IT WAS THAT A LOT OF HIS SCORING WAS DONE EARLY AND QUITE OFTEN IN THE PAINT. WHEN LEBRON PLAYS IN THE POST IT ALLOWS LEBRON TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE OPPOSING TEAM. WHY IS THAT? THE LAKERS CAN USE LEBRON TO UTILIZE HIS SIZE TO GET EASY BUCKETS FOR HIMSELF. EASY DUCK DOWNS TO INITIATE EASY OFFENSE . ALSO THE TEAM COULD UTILIZE HIS PASSING ABILITY TO FIND OPEN SHOOTERS AND CUTTERS. REALLY NO TEAM WOULD EVEN THINK ABOUT DOUBLE TEAMING HIM IN THE POST.

IN TODAYS LEAGUE YOU CAN USE LEBRON AT POINT-CENTER AND HE WOULD STILL DOMINATE. THE 1ST HALF OF THIS GAME THAT STRATEGY WAS EMPLOYED. ALSO HIS EXPLOSIVENESS IS STILL THERE AS LAST NIGHT HE WAS PULLING OFF ALL TYPES OF THUNDEROUS DUNKS. HE REALLY PUT ON A SHOW IN CHICAGO.

LEBRON SHOWED ME SOMETHING.

IN TODAYS LEAGUE AND HOW IT IS OFFICIATED HE WILL DOMINATE AND STATICALICALY IT WILL LOOK BETTER THAN HIS NUMBERS IN HIS PRIME!

LEGACY OF LEBRON JAMES:

&

-MY BOLD STATEMENT-

HE WAS EXCLUSIVELY IN THE POST AS WE SEEN EVIDENT THIS WILL PROLONG HIS CAREER AND ALLOW HIM TO PAST KAREEM ALL TIME IN SCORING. HE IS NOW MORE OF A NIGHTMARE MATCHUP FOR OPPOSING TEAMS. LEBRON IS 6’9 270LB’S WITH QUICKNESS , POWER , AND SKILLS. HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF HIS BODY AND LAST NIGHT HE WAS SHOWING US THAT HE’LL BE HERE FOR AWHILE.

AT AGE 34 LEBRON IS FADING OUT OF HIS PRIME BUT HE IS STILL CAPABLE OF BEING THE BEST PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE ANY GIVEN NIGHT!

HE IS GETTING TRIPLE DOUBLES AT A ALL-TIME RATE AND THAT WON’T SLOW DOWN. HE CURRENTLY HAS 80 TRIPLE DOUBLES WHICH PLACES HIM IN 5TH ALL TIME!

LAST NIGHT PERFORMANCE:

PREDICTIONS:

THIS YEAR HE AVERAGES HIS CAREER POINTS WHICH IS 27 POINTS PER GAME.

IF HE GETS NO HELP NEXT YEAR HOW MUCH DO YOU SEE A SLIP IN HIS SCORING?

BECAUSE I DON’T.

WE NEED TO APPRECIATE LEBRON FOR HIS LONGEVITY. IN HIS CAREER HE HAS SO FAR PLAYED IN 1192 REGULAR SEASON GAMES AND 239 NBA PLAYOFF GAMES.

THE NBA RECORD BOOK WILL BE FULL OF LEBRON JAMES AND WILT CHAMBERLAIN RECORDS (ONLY PLAYER SIMILAR TO LEBRON TERMS OF MODERN DAY DOMINANCE.)

SO ALL YOU LEBRON JAMES FAN BOYS AND LEBRON JAMES HATERS SIT BACK BECAUSE NOW HE IS AT THE STAGE OF HIS CAREER WHERE HE MIGHT JUST GO OFF BECAUSE HE CAN. WINNING CHAMPIONSHIPS MIGHT BE OVER FOR LEBRON IF HE DOESN’T GET THE RIGHT TEAMMATES. BUT FOR ME I DONT CARE I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM FOCUS ON MORE OF HIS INDIVIDUAL STATS AND FOR US TO MARVEL SHOW US HOW GREAT OF AN INDIVIDUAL PLAYER YOU ARE.

HOW MANY RECORDS HE WILL BREAK?

ONLY 3 PLAYERS IN NBA HISTORY TO HAVE SCORED MORE POINTS THAN LEBRON.

WHO KNOWS HE MAY COME OUT NEXT YEAR AT 35 GUNNING FOR MVP AND WE SEE THE BEST OF LEBRON.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT LEBRON JAMES ON THE BASKETBALL COURT?

HOW GREAT IS HE?

ME:

I’LL SIT BACK AND ENJOY. ☕️

KEMBA WALKER VS HOUSTON ROCKETS (3-11-19)

KEMBA WALKER WAS DOWN 3 OF HIS STARTERS VS THE HOUSTON ROCKETS AND VIRTUALLY BROUGHT HIS TEAM BACK FROM A HUGE DEFICIT. UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS JUST TO MUCH AND THE HOUSTON ROCKETS TOOK CONTROL LATE IN THE GAME.

AS FOR KEMBA HE WAS EXTREMELY EFFICIENT AND PLAYED A MONSTROUS ALL AROUND GAME. HE TOOK WHAT THE DEFENSE GAVE HIM AND WAS AGGRESSIVE WHEN HE NEEDED TO BE. THIS IS HIS 3RD TIME SCORING 40P+ POINTS THIS YEAR.

TO ME THIS PROVED ONCE AGAIN THAT HE IS GREAT PLAYER AND A LOT OF TEAMS WILL PERSUE HIM THIS OFFSEASON.

CHARLOTTE IS NOW 30-37 WHICH PLACES THEM IN 10TH PLACE IN THE EAST. WITH 15 GAMES LEFT CHARLOTTE NEEDS TO PICK UP THE WIN PACE . IN THERE LAST 10 THEY ARE 3-7.

DO YOU THINK THE HORNETS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS?

NO

DO YOU THINK KEMBA STAYS IN CHARLOTTE NEXT YEAR?

IF THE HORNETS OFFER THE SUPER MAX THEN I BELIEVE HE STAYS. IF NOT THEN HE’LL HAVE A LOT OF SUITERS WHO COULD USE AN ALL STAR PG.

CLOSER:

IN THE 4TH QT DEVIN BOOKER WAS SIMPLY THE BEST PLAYER ON THE COURT. SCORING 12 STRAIGHT POINTS AND ALSO SCORED 17 POINTS IN THAT QUARTER TO SEALED THE VICTORY.

THE SUNS IMPROVED TO 16-52. THEY CURRENTLY HAVE THE 3RD WORST IN THE RECORD IN THE ASSOCIATION.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE GAME:

MAKING HISTORY:

AT 22 OF AGE BOOKER CONTINUES TO BREAK RECORDS AS HE IS NOW:

CAN BOOKER WIN A MVP BEFORE HIS CAREER IS DONE?

I BELIEVE BOOKER WILL WIN A MVP PERHAPS IN 3-7 YEARS
