Lebron with AD - contenders.

Hmmm, so who is the real MVP?


LeBron. He could play on a team with KD, Harden, Curry and Joel Embiid and the media would still find a way to drive the LeBron MVP narrative. He pays their bills. There are literally people in the media that only have jobs because LeBron James exists. Once he retires, they will no longer be employed.

Lakers should rest Bron against the Jazz. No need to put more milage on him in an unwinnable game.

Lakers fans melting down but I’d bet good money that Lakers are in the Finals again when it’s all said and done. AD is that good and makes that much of a difference.

And Vogel should seriously be ashamed of himself. Waiting for a 36 year old Lebron to bail us out playing 40+ minutes what the **** are you thinking? So what if he wants to play WHO GIVES A ****!

**** idiot. There is nothing to like about this team right now. We **** suck if we're lucky we'll win a couple of games.

Man screw that this team is not as good as the team we had last year. Sure on paper the talent is better but we have no character. Put this team against last years team and we win by 30+.

Lakers don't have any real Killers from 3, Bron ain't KD in that sense.

Yep he fares best with shooters around him. The role players made some clutch 3s to get back, but too inconsistent. I don't think they have a dedicated 3 sniper. It's by-committee which is one way to go about it, but this way they're 26th in attempts and 20th in efficiency.

Their sniper IMO was supposed to be Mathews, But so far he's been far too in consistent. Their still a great team with AD + Bron, But I do think a small move for a real shooter would help to sure things up a bit.

Anybody giving Bradley Beal any credit when the wizards are winning 5 games in a row...??

Beal is a legit top 10 player in the nba.

So many of their late game possessions end up in a Kuzma or Caruso three point attempt. They need to make some kind of change.

They're still tied for the 2nd best record in the league, but right now, even if healthy, they would have no shot against Brooklyn.
