LeBron James says Lakers miss Lonzo Ball 'a lot'

LeBron James in Danger Of Losing Made Up Title If Lakers Miss Playoffs

He's not the only problem because you can look at that roster and be like, 'They're not going to guard very well. This window is this short to take advantage of LeBron now. "For those guys, I think we try to prepare every day".

Ben Golliver: He can play better defense than he's playing right now. "I like where we are as a ballclub today with our mindset and hopefully going forward".

Much of that slide can be attributed to James' prolonged absence due to a groin injury, with the 34-year-old missing all of January before returning for a 123-120 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on February 1. That would be a sweep with an average margin of victory probably somewhere between 18 and 68 points (Laughs).

James put up a triple-double with 24 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. "I've never, like I said before, been a guy who has been able to sit out the fourth, but I just play and do whatever I can, play as hard as I can for the minutes I am on the floor". He was actually asked whether the team's playoff push has been a distraction.

Players must be waived by Friday in order to maintain playoff eligibility should they sign elsewhere.

Since its release in November, the film has racked up over $900 million in the world box office. The pair apparently can't keep their hands off one another, and their fans are here for it.

However, the injury aside, James' ruthless pursuit of Anthony Davis and the impact that has had on the chemistry of the team, has fans and commentators pointing the finger at the Cleveland legend for its lack of cohesion. "There should be much more heat on the front office than there is on Luke Walton". There's no question about that.

"LeBron is right in criticising his teammates but if I were the Lakers I would shut LeBron down".

"I encourage a lot of our players not to pay attention to a lot of it", Walton said. That's a title LeBron has grown accustomed to for about the last decade.

Even Ingram's perimeter game has been reliable of late, as he has hit 6-of-10 from 3-point distance in his last three contests.

The Lakers have been favored in four of the last five games they've lost outright, so if you'd have backed the opposing team, you'd have received a great payout. Visit SportsLine now to find out which side of the Pelicans vs. Lakers spread you should be all over Wednesday, all from the model that's up more than $4,000 on National Basketball Association picks this season. I've seen him play over the years.
