The NBA just dropped his season highlights yesterday, it’s wild he was doing this at such a high level at 35. Man we’ve been robbed, it was looking like an all time great playoff run, offense close to 2018 and defense a little better.

Yeah, I'm a big LeBron fan, so I'm very frustrated, since this season just hurt his chance at getting Kareem's record, as well as getting a fourth ring. I think he had a solid shot at both. That's how the cookie crumbles, but still frustrating.

I'm optimistic this season (maybe only the Playoffs) will be finished.

It's just unfortunate for LeBron because he was in good form and rhythm before this happened. So now you're wondering can he pick up where he left off on a whim, or will he come back rusty.

He is clearly keeping in shape and the extra rest will always help.

I am optimistic too. On Simmons' podcast he said the NBA has been floating the idea of starting the season on Christmas... this would be the perfect opportunity to do say. Playoffs August/September, then 3 month offseason. Could even start the Playoffs mid-August with an abbreviated first two rounds and finish by the end of September. That's almost 5 months away, I'm pretty concerned about the pandemic and I understand the gravity of the situation but I do think things could be at least somewhat under control by then.

I was watching Clippers Lakers highlights from earlier this month, and man I miss watching even Rondo play.

Lakers already had great chemistry so it'll help them ramp up quickly when things start up again, but I'm worried about the shooting on the team. KCP, Bradley, etc were really on a roll recently, and I don't trust their shooting enough to think this is who they are permanently. KCP very well could come back looking how he did the first few weeks of the season when he started like 0 for a million.

They need at least two weeks of a regular season before resuming.. Even if that means going beyond 82 games.

I remember this playoffs game back in 2016.



It was crazy!

The cavs were 25-45 for the games in 3 points and 18-27 in the first half.In the 4 games in this series,the cavs had been 77-152 in 3 points,so over 50% in this series :o :lol:

Not Marv, that was the great Kevin Harlan! The guy who should be the number one play by play guy in the biz, over Breen.

My mistake. Marv probably would have got the names mixed up

What are the best Lebron performances this season?

I'm going back to watch some now that i have time. His moving to the West has made it harder to catch his games.

Recently rewatched his duel w/ Luka in November, now that was a fun game. (Also a great Luka game)

THey should have given the ball to KLove in the POST where he could use his FOOTWORK and POST MOVES and put up his .81 points per possession there. The stats say that he had the 6th most post ups a game in the playoffs, but he should have had the most with 12-14 per game.

What was LeBron thinking by playing his skills-less LeBron ball and getting KLove wide open threes when his ass should have been parked in the paint? Yeah, Love had 1.18 points per possession on spot ups and JR Smith 1.34 and Channing Frye 1.54 and the Cavs created an all time offense, but LeBron ball, ball movement, postmoves, footwork...

If the teams come back to play without crowds in the arena will any team be considered to have "homecourt advantage"?

I don't see anyway this year at least the NBA will be playing any games, finals included, in 20,000 packed arenas.
