LeBron James and the LA Lakers defeat the Trailblazers in NBA playoffs round one !

Did I have some doubts about LeBron being playoff ready this year ? Was I worried that his mental state wasn’t in the same mindset that it had been in his prior playoff history ? I can say with confidence that this is the first year I ever had some doubts with LeBron.

This year we have all seen Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crash. We all seen and heard LeBron’s speech praising and missing him. We all seen LeBron getting off a plane crying the day he heard about that crash. Then came COVID-19 shutting down the entire US and cancelling the rest of the NBA season . Then came the stories of police brutality on black people and the rioting . This year has been a lot of pain and sadness for everyone.

Then LeBron made a statement about his mind being on so many things. We seen him on social media during the playoffs which is something he never has done in the past. I think we are slowly beginning to see that LeBron is tired. However , you wouldn’t notice it on the court. He is still scoring triple doubles and blocking , stealing and dunking just as he has been the last 16 years.

However , his final game last night against the Trailblazers was like watching him in every playoff he has ever been in. LeBron has participated in about 14 playoffs and he has never lost in the first round. Last nights game proved his heart was in it to win. Anthony Davis was right there with LeBron scoring 43 points. All of my doubts and hesitations of Anthony has went away. I never thought I would see the day where I loved watching someone playing with LeBron as much as I loved watching Kyrie. Anthony is growing on me !

All bets are on the Lakers getting into the finals ! The Lakers will face either Oaklahoma Thunder or the Houston Rockets once their battle is completed.

Let’s Go Lakers !!!

LeBron James ….Is he in the right mindset ? Playoffs 2020

The LA Lakers will play the Portland Trailblazers this Tuesday in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The big question that is on everyone’s mind is ….. is LeBron ready ? Is Anthony Davis ready ? Is the Lakers as a team ready ?

As I reminisce the past of LeBrons pre playoff history ( and completely miss his sidekick Kyrie ) I begin to realize LeBron is right where he should be. The last few years that he played with the Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron would sit out games and reduce his minutes , stay off social media and just clear his mind . Many of his pre playoff games he often seemed to drift off a bit with his scores deceasing making his fans wonder what is happening to this guy ? LeBron would miss half his shots and miss even more free throws then usual. Then something magical would happen in every playoff . LeBron would become the beast that we know scoring triple doubles , making his 3 point shots , blocking and dunking.

This season is a little different for LeBron. He is being quarantined and having to listen about the protesting happening across the nation. He is getting older. He has just helped his third team to make the playoffs. LA Lakers was a pretty weak team the last few years until LeBron showed up and I honestly believe if he had not had that groin injury on Christmas’s of last season that had him out almost the rest of that season , the Lakers would have been well on their way to the playoffs.

I have never given up hope on LeBron before and I’m not going to start right now. I think LeBron was preparing himself for what might be his last chance to win another championship. Anthony Davis’s contract ends this season so we don’t really know if he will be back with the Lakers and Anthony has been one of the key players this season. Anthony needs to step it up in the playoffs because his playing has been less then stellar the last few games.

You can watch the beginning of the playoffs with the LA Lakers taking on the Portland Trailblazers this Tuesday at 9pm Eastern time on TNT

Is LeBron playoff ready ?

Last night the LA Lakers fought their way on the court against last year champions the Toronto Raptors. The Lakers started the game by missing every shot for the first few minutes as the Raptors easily scored 10 points. Finally McGee made a bucket putting the Lakers on the scoreboard. The Lakers had 11 turnovers in the first quarter of the game. They didn’t look like the number one team in the NBA. They looked more like they were just waking up from a long deep sleep. The Lakers lost to the Raptors with a score of 92 to 107.

LeBron played well. He always does. LeBron ended the night with 20 points , 5 assists , 10 rebounds , and 1 block. His defense was pretty stellar last night as well. I have noticed him picking up his defense in the last few games. He looks in great shape. He was smiling on the sidelines. LeBron is right where he wants to be . His health is good. His teammate Anthony Davis is looking and feeling good and the Lakers are passing the ball and working pretty well on the court together . So what went wrong last night ?

One thing I noticed during the game was the double teaming on Anthony Davis. I think the Lakers are going to have to make sure Davis is open to make those shots that we know he can make. Was LeBron as aggressive as he usually is on the court. I didn’t notice if he was. He seemed to have his usual energy but something was a little off with him last night. JR Smith , who I am ecstatic to see play with LeBron again played for about 7 minutes. The one thing I love about JR Smith besides his upfront raw personality is his ability to open the floor space the point guard needs to get a bucket. He can get into those 3 point shots easily if he wants to. I would like to see more of him on the court. I also think Kuzma should be a starter. I am not sure why the coaches have benched him but I do think he has proven himself to be a starter.

The Lakers next game will be against Utah Jazz tomorrow 9 p.m eastern time on ESPN. Go Lakers !!

Having a psychic ability

Have you ever had a gut feeling that something wasn’t quite right ? Have you ever felt like something wasn’t quite right walking into a room ? Have you ever felt like someone was in the room with you but when you turned around no one was there ? Have you ever felt someone was watching you and when you turned around you met the stare of a stranger ?

Growing up I always had feelings that I wasn’t alone even after my entire family left the house. I would see shadows out of the corner of my eye , hear footsteps in my bedroom all of the time. A few times I would wake up in the middle of the night to see a shadow of a man starring out my bedroom window. I would hear scratching on my bedroom walls.

One of my most haunting memories in the house I grew up in was the feeling of being held down in my bed. I felt a heavy pressure on my chest. I couldn’t scream out. A few moments later it felt as if something was lifting out of me. Was it sleep paralysis or something else ?

To this day I still see shadows out of the corner of my eye. I experienced something freakishly scary at my sisters house with the blankets slowly moving over my head.

I always wondered why I would experience so much more paranormal activity then anyone else in my house. Was it because I played “ light as a feather stiff as a board” as a child ? For those of you who don’t know what that is it’s basically a game you play with about 4 others. One person will lay down while a few others sit around that person with two fingers under the person laying on the floor. Everyone closes their eyes and chants “light as a feather , stiff as a board” at the same time. The person laying on the floor will rise about 4 feet. It is scary to think I use to play games like that not knowing what I was inviting into the home. I also played the game I believe in Mary Worth.

Those of you who have no idea what game that is just know it’s not a game to take lightly. Basically, you turn out all of the lights , light a candle and stare into a mirror while repeating over and over “ I believe in Mary Worth “. You are suppose to try not to blink and Mary will come out of the mirror and scratch your face. It actually happened to my friends friend so of course my best friend and I had to try it ourselves. I later found out I was inviting the unknown into my house.

I have visited quite a few psychics in my life time. I have been told by a few of them that I have psychic abilities and all I had to do was open the door a little more for them to really be apart of my world. I have also had a few psychics tell me I would have a change of career in writing . I was told that way before I wrote my first two books and self published them.

Do you believe in the paranormal ? Do you believe there is something out there trying to get your attention ? Play a few games to find out ….. if you are brave enough. I dare you.

LeBron takes on LA Clippers !!!

You didn’t really think I would take to much time off to not mention LeBron did you ? In just a few hours we will see the greatest NBA player on earth play against the second top team in the NBA . LA Clippers have had a phenomenal season with Leonard and Paul George ( my future husband ). However , their court chemistry doesn’t even come close to the chemistry that LeBron and Anthony has. The other day as I was listening to ESPN and their usual banter on who they think has been the best duo in NBA history , I began to think of all of the teammates I watched over the years. ESPN thought Davis and James was one of the best duos they seen in years.

I started to think of all of the teammates LeBron has played with over the years. I absolutely loved watching LeBron play with Wade but there is something special about LeBron and Kyrie’s presence on the court together. It’s like they can read each other’s minds on the court easily catching the passes , dribbling behind one another. Kyrie and LeBron made it to the NBA finals 3 times together and winning one championship together. Later LeBron chose Kyrie to be on his All Stars team and they won again. In my heart LeBron and Kyrie make the best dynamic duo in NBA history. Is it because I am from Cleveland ? I’m not sure but I do know I cherish every memory I have of those two together. However , tonight is a different story. Tonight I cheer for Davis. Davis has been a pleasant surprise and I am definitely a new fan of his.

You can catch the LA Lakers take on the LA Clippers tonight on TNT at 9 pm Eastern time. GO LAKERS !
