Because that would be smart and this Lakers team can't do something like that

LA's 3pt defense is so panicky even when they're there they don't bother the shooter.

lol all he can do while iso'd against Sabonis on the switch is shoot long 3's. But hey, he's making 'em.

In 2018 playoffs 1st round he was running circles around this same dude against the same team.

LeBron's defensive fundamentals even at this age are still impeccable. You will pretty much never see him make a mistake.

The injury has to be hurting him still. He looked great before it. In any event, 37 points is 37 points. Inching closer to the record.

Their defense with him at the 5 was incredible.

This one’s for Skip Bayless. The announcer was so mad.

Loved seeing him bring the Silencer back out

Wonder what those fans said for LeBron to be that upset

Will be interesting to see if he can keep the 25pt avg. streak going this season. At 24.5 after this game.

Either something racist or called him a b*t*h. That's his trigger word

Motor is no longer there but too few know he can anchor a defense every now and then. 16 finals and 20 Rockets series were some of the better defensive anchor series we've seen from a wing. Many people really believe Lebron plays negative defense for 4 quarters. You just need to turn on a game every now and then to see it's not true.

Having said that, not impressed by the Lakers. Will continue to get blown out against good offenses.
